"Volvo's upcoming diesel hybrid automobile, the V60, will allow users to run their car on electricity alone. However, one major downside electric cars have, is the time they require to recharge - between three and 7.5 hours, in the V60′s case. Fortunately, Volvo is planning on making the wait a little easier for its customers. They have developed an iPhone application, which allows V60 owners to check their car's charge status on the go."
Always excited to see industries embrace the iPhone and iOS, like Volvo has done here with their app to monitor the charging status of the V60. GM and BMW have also embraced it with functionality tied to the iPhone and the iOS. You can see it in action if you skip forward to about 2:37 in the video above.
