Volvo is aiming for fully electric cars by 2030
According to Volvo CEO – Mr. Hakan Samuelsson, the Swedish automaker is aiming to become a fully electric car brand within the next 10 years.
Volvo claims its first target of half of all-electric sales worldwide by 2025, but it still has to set a deadline on when to stop production of all-electric vehicles. internal combustion engine.
Mr. Hakan Samuelsson told the Financial Times Future of Car Summit: “The road ahead is sure to have rules to follow when we give up the internal combustion engine. I would be very surprised if we still offer the gas engine after 2030.
Although Volvo wants 20% of its global sales this year to be electrified, the vast majority of that will still be hybrid and plug-in hybrids.
“Once you realize that gasoline and diesel engines really aren’t part of the future, we will be there and help you enter the new world,” he added.
Samuelsson says his company has recognized this and is not worried about countries like the UK setting an end to selling internal combustion engine models. “Volvo will be very careful and only supply electric motors before any customer has a formal request for this.”
