Volvo Pledges To Make Exclusively Electric And Hybrid Cars Starting In 2019

By Brian Spaen

Volvo is making a big leap into the electric vehicle market. Beginning in 2019, the Swedish car manufacturer will no longer be producing vehicles that just run on an internal combustion engine. Instead, cars will feature some form of electric motor, be it fully electric or various hybrids.

On Wednesday, Volvo announced that five different fully electric vehicles will be released between 2019 and 2021. Three of them will be under the Volvo name and the other two will be high-performance EVs under Polestar. Numerous other models will be plug-in or mild hybrids, meaning that none of their new cars will run only on diesel gas.

President and CEO of Volvo, Hakan Samuelsson, said in the press release that these moves were made with their consumer in mind, explaining, “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.”
