Hi all,
We've been considering a 450h+ PHEV and all the literature I read says a 0-60 of 6 seconds. What is not specified though is whether that is in EV only mode or hybrid (EV/ICE motor) mode.

I saw one youtube review that mentioned the 0-60 in EV only was 10". That is way slower than the 7.5" of our 2017 Volt in EV only mode. We'd like to use the 450h+ like the Volt in EV mode only until it runs out of juice then the ICE kicks in but 10" to get up to 60mph is pretty slow for getting on the freeway and merging with traffic. Your thoughts and comments appreciated. Thanks.

That is what I heard also - but running around town in EV only mode is basically what I bought mine for. Getting on the highway, passing, etc I suspect the AUTO mode is more called for.

I have owned a NX450H+ since March….power is not an issue….especially when in Sport mode you get all 305 hp…
even in EV mode it is very quick…
unless you constantly exceed the 65 km range of the EV the gas engine never runs…absolutely amazing mileage even when in Hybrid mode…
