It’s rare that a development by a car manufacturer generates such excitement across the national media. However, the announcement that all Volvo Cars 2019 and onwards will now feature an electric motor, representing the increasing insignificance of the internal combustion engine, whether in petrol cars or diesel cars, is big news. At least for a forward-thinking car manufacturer like Volvo, it shows that the environment really does come first. To find out more about the current electric options for the new Volvo range, just give us a call or send an enquiry.
Already, Volvo offers twin-engined cars, like the XC90 and the V60 Volvo Plug-in Hybrid models. Between 2019 and 2021, Volvo will launch five fully electric cars, three under the Volvo badge and two from its Polestar high-performance, electric car brand. In addition, Volvo’s new car range will comprise diesel and petrol plug-in hybrid and mild-hybrid 48-volt options on all models. This commitment by Volvo to protecting the environment, reducing pollution, especially in our inner cities, and meeting customer demands for more environmentally friendly vehicles is truly groundbreaking. What’s more, Volvo is on track to meet its target to achieve climate-neutral manufacturing for all its cars by 2025.
Håkan Samuelsson, President and Chief Executive of Volvo Cars, said proudly:
“This announcement marks the end of the solely combustion engine-powered car. Volvo Cars has stated that it plans to have sold a total of 1m electrified cars by 2025. When we said it, we meant it. This is how we are going to do it.”
