Volvo has made a further commitment to producing electric vehicles, the company has now announced that all new Volvo cars that it launches from 2019 will come with an electric motor.
This means that there will be many new hybrid models launching and the company will also be launching a range of all electric vehicles.
Volvo Cars, the premium car maker, has announced that every Volvo it launches from 2019 will have an electric motor, marking the historic end of cars that only have an internal combustion engine (ICE) and placing electrification at the core of its future business.
“This is about the customer,” said Håkan Samuelsson, president and chief executive. “People increasingly demand electrified cars and we want to respond to our customers’ current and future needs. You can now pick and choose whichever electrified Volvo you wish.”
Volvo have said that it will launch a total of five fully electric vehicles between 2019 and 2021, three of these will be Volvo cars and the other two will be high performance Polestar cars.
