There aren't many car makers in the world aiming for lots of zeroes, but Volvo is. It wants no one injured or killed in a Volvo by 2020, and it's also aiming for zero emissions from its cars.
The former might well be possible, barring any idiots parking in rivers, but the latter could prove more tricky. Still, the Swedes are having a go, with the launch next year of their first plug-in hybrid in the V60.
The bare figures are impressive, if not quite full of noughts. Emissions drop to 49g/km, and the average fuel economy is a whopping 150mpg. In a car the size of the V60 estate, that is some going. Especially when you consider it's got a D5 diesel engine under the bonnet, so the combined power figure from the diesel and electric power plants is 272bhp and 472lb ft. As such, the V60 is good for 0-62mph in 6.9 seconds.
