Volvo Cars is ramping up the production of the V60 Plug-in Diesel Hybrid by 90%, thanks to strong demand across Europe.

According to Volvo, due to the increasing demand for the car--particularly in Holland, Belgium and Italy--the Swedisch carmaker\'s Torslanda plant in Sweden has continuously increased its production from 150 to 282 units per week. All in all, Volvo will produce 7,600 plug-in hybrids in 2013, with the 2014 target at 10,000 units.

\"We are exceptionally pleased that the V60 Plug-in Hybrid has received such a fantastic reception among consumers,\" said Volvo senior vice president for research and development Peter Mertens. \"However, I am not surprised. Our plug-in hybrid is a unique car, superior to all other hybrids on the market. Since the plug-in hybrid has been integrated into the established production flow together with other car models, we have the flexibility to quickly adapt to the increasing demand.\"
