When it comes to keeping you and your passengers safe on the road, the S60 Recharge is loaded with assisted safety systems to help you avoid collisions, back up with confidence, and reduce stress in congested traffic. A blind spot information system delivers the active support you need when merging to help you see what might be in or entering your blind spot. If the blind spot information system (BLIS®) perceives you intend to change lanes and detects a potential collision, the BLIS system can adjust the steering inputs to help you stay safe in your lane.

Explore S60 Recharge Trims

The new 2022 Volvo S60 Recharge is available in a range of trim variants to compare and additional options packages to review. Let's take a look at the standard features and options each model offers to compare S60 Recharge R-Design vs. S60 Recharge Inscription features. We'll also review the S60 Recharge R-Design, S60 Recharge R-Design Expression, and S60 Recharge R-Design Black Edition differences.

Volvo S60 Recharge Inscription Overview & Pricing

The new 2022 Volvo S60 Recharge delivers an EPA-estimated 30/33 MPG1 (City/Highway) and 74 MPGe1 (Combined). The latest generation of the Volvo Cars plug-in hybrid powertrain delivers smooth electric propulsion and a powerful ride. If you like the driving characteristics of AWD, you'll appreciate how the rear electric motor optimizes handling in slippery conditions. The S60 Recharge Inscription trim is known for its precision steering response and advanced chassis that provides dynamic driving pleasure.


Gear changes and downshifts come from the smooth-shifting eight-speed Geartronic™ automatic transmission. This intuitive gearbox ensures you're always in the optimal gear for responsiveness and fuel efficiency. Usually, when you bring your vehicle to a stop at a red light, the engine will continue to idle - consuming fuel and producing fossil fuel emissions. The S60 Recharge Inscription is equipped with an Engine Start/Stop function that helps to reduce fuel consumption and exhaust emissions while stopped. The engine detects your vehicle has come and shuts off, then automatically restarts when you remove your foot from the brake.

Interior & Tech

The new 2022 S60 Recharge Inscription is easily identified by its blond headliner, crystal gear selector knob by Orrefors®, and driftwood decor throughout the interior. When it comes to keeping you in touch with your contacts and apps while on the go, the S60 Recharge Inscription comes standard with Apple CarPlay®, Bluetooth® connection, and voice control. If you aren't familiar with what comes with the Volvo Cars app, you can remotely pre-climatize your parked vehicle before you slip behind the wheel.

Features & Upgrades

Other noteworthy interior comforts and features worth mentioning include a leather steering wheel, leather upholstery, a tailored dashboard with high-level illumination throughout the cabin. The soundtrack to your commute is delivered through a Harman Kardon® Premium Sound system and can be controlled with a steering wheel remote control. Whether it's a chilly morning or the end of a hard day, the heated front seats will provide the heat therapy your body needs. Take a spin on Comfort Front Seats to experience ergonomic comfort.

Volvo S60 R-Design Overview & Pricing

Let's look at the S60 Recharge R-Design Expression, S60 Recharge R-Design, and S60 Recharge R-Design Black Edition and compare the differences in performance, interior comforts, tech, and features. The biggest difference between these three models is that the R-Design Expression offers Linear Lime details, and the R-Design comes with sport pedals, while the R-Design Black Edition is equipped with glossy black details and wheel options.


All three Volvo S60 Recharge R-Design models offer the same powertrain and Start/Stop technology as the S60 Recharge Inscription.

The S60 Recharge R-Design Black Edition adds to the performance by offering a choice of wheels.

Driver's support systems on the S60 R-Design Expression include a park assist rear camera and auto-folding heated power door mirrors. The S60 Recharge R-Design is equipped with an auto-dim rearview mirror, 12-inch instrument panel, and Sensus Navigation.

Volvo S60 Recharge Polestar Engineered Overview & Pricing

The top-of-the-line Volvo S60 Recharge is the S60 Recharge Polestar Engineered. This premium plug-in hybrid gives you the features of the R-Design Black Edition plus a Polestar Engineered front grille, high-pressure headlight cleaners, adaptive cruise control, and refined driving dynamics. Along with its impressive performance, the S60 Recharge Polestar Engineered provides luxury comforts and conveniences, such as heated rear seats, a power driver's seat with memory, and a passenger memory seat.


The Volvo S60 Recharge Polestar Engineered upgrades the performance and driving dynamics with forged wheels, Öhlins chassis, and powerful Brembo® brakes to bring your ride to a controlled stop. When it's time to charge your Volvo Recharge, the portable Level 2 charging cable with a dual-voltage plug-in design only requires a NEMA 6-20 power outlet or a quick charge. A 22.9-foot TurboCord comes standard and will come in handy when you can't park your Volvo plug-in hybrid near a charging point.

Interior & Tech

When you have a vehicle with this much performance, you want the interior features to harmonize with what's under the hood. That's why this S60 Recharge Polestar Engineered comes with aluminum tread plates, sport pedals, a charcoal headliner, and a tailored sport leather gear shift. The interior also distinguishes itself with metal mesh aluminum decor, a tailored dashboard, and Nappa leather upholstery.

Take advantage of the Volvo Cars app to start the vehicle and pre-clean the cabin before you climb inside. With its plug-in hybrid technology and advanced air filtration, the S60 Recharge Polestar Engineered is helping to clean the air inside and outside your vehicle.
