Hahaha!  20 cars and you have to pay $1,100 a month to subscribe to it?  PASS.  You can get an M3 for less money and blow this thing away.  Or an Alfa Romeo Guilia, or a C43, or C63, etc.  

None of those are AWD hybrids, only the C63 has more torque, none will get better mileage.  This is the Volvo version of a Model 3 dual motor that comes with insurance and maintenance in the monthly payment.  Try getting any of the cars on your list (except the C43, that's not even a valid comparison) for $1,100 a month including insurance. … and still be able to drive in the HOV lanes in California and NY.

You can lease a C43 or CLA45 and buy a lot of gas and insurance and still be cheaper than this S60.  Or you could get a Tesla Model S for that kind of money.    Plus there are only 20 of these Volvos available for the whole year which makes it about 10 times more rare than an Audi R8.  More rare than an AMG hyper car.  

Plus I believe the subscriber ida does not work unless it is done as a ride share on autonomous cars.

You can believe what you like.  All 20 are already sold out.
