Volvo, the way to full electric production from 2030?
Volvo Cars has clear objectives for the future of its range of cars: reducing CO2 emissions by further strengthening the current strategy for electric mobility. The enormous push of the Swedish company towards electrification therefore marks an important step towards a transport without fossil fuels.

In this regard, the CEO of the company from Gothenburg, Hakan Samuelsson, has "formalized" the date of the definitive farewell to the production of traditional cars, thus confirming the will of the car manufacturer to aim for a production exclusively dedicated to electric cars.

New objectives

Volvo would seem to be willing to proceed with an optimization of medium and long-term projects, with production destined for definitive conversion which should therefore be implemented by 2030. However, the next strategy that will consist of transforming half of its range into fully electric vehicles by the end of 2025 is decisive.

At the Financial Times Future of the Car Summit, Samuelsson said:

The way forward is to have clear rules on when to abandon internal combustion engines. I would be surprised if we fail to produce only electric cars by 2030. Volvo will be very careful, and will only produce electric motors well before it is legally required.

The statements released inevitably confirm the automaker's goals. as a result of large investments and technologies that will debut on the market within the next ten years. It is no coincidence that the electrification of the brand has so far seen great results. In the next few years we should see the debut of the new XC20 SUV, a car developed on the SEA platform, born from the collaboration with Geely also destined for models of the Link & Co. brand.

However, the Swedish brand has stated that it will present a fully electric car per year for the next 5 years. A move of fundamental importance that recalls the recent anticipation of a stop to internal combustion cars by 2030 in the UK: a ban that should arrive on petrol and diesel cars.

Not just cars. The carmaker Volvo recently unveiled a range of electric trucks set to be introduced in 2021, with mass production scheduled for 2022. The brand's aim is therefore to also provide customers with viable alternatives to diesel trucks and able to travel long distances.
