I would love to know what you were comparing as Volvo (at least in CH) only offer hybrids or fully electric vehicles. There's nothing else in their product range any more.

In any event, the like for like hybrid to non-hybrid price difference was never as much as 20K.

Oh and your assumptions on electric are wholly wrong, as Don Molina wrote the full system efficiency of electirc is already significantly better than fossil. And as was pointed out further above (someone posted a nice link) hydrogen is significantly less efficient than battery.
I don't think Volvo's "mild hybrid" thing (basically just regenerative breaking) really counts - and the reviews suggest it's useless at actually reducing fuel consumption in real-world driving.
