 A better value CKD Volvo S60 T8 R-Design is coming to Malaysia 01

Volvo Car Malaysia will launch the locally-assembled (CKD) version of the Volvo S60 T8 R-Design through live stream launch event on their official Facebook page next week, May 18th at 12 PM.

The fully-imported (CBU) version launched last year carries a price tag of RM 295,888, but the CKD model is highly likely to not go far off from the current pricing, with a possible add-on to the specifications.

Expect the S60 CKD to retain its 2.0-litre supercharged and turbocharged four-cylinder T8 Twin Engine with plug-in hybrid AWD powertrain, rated at 320 PS and 400 Nm of torque to the front wheel. An electric motor adds 87 PS and 240 Nm to the rear wheel for a total system output of 407 PS and 640 Nm of torque.

The S60’s 11.6 kWh lithium-ion battery gives an EV range of up to 49 km. Being in the D-segment sedan category, the S60 competes against the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, BMW 3 Series and Audi A4.
