Volvo to release 5 brand new electric vehicles

Swedish car maker Volvo is accelerating at full speed towards an electric future.

As part of its recently announced plans to go fully electric by 2030, Volvo has also revealed that it will release five brand new electric vehicles.

The automaker confirmed that the first of its new EVs will roll out as soon as 2023.

No further information was provided about exactly which model it will be though.

Volvo’s new foursome of zero-emission vehicles will reportedly consist of a large and a small crossover, a saloon and two sporty estate-like models.

Additionally, two new plug-in hybrids will also join the Swedish eco-friendly fleet.

“We are firmly committed to becoming an electric-only car maker and the transition should happen by 2030.” – Henrik Green, Volvo’s Chief Technology Officer.

Volvo last year proved it was fully capable of creating quality EVs when it released an all-electric successor to its XC40 Recharge; the 2022 C40 Recharge SUV.

Volvo is also planning to phase out all diesel, gas and hybrid-power cars completely by the end of the decade.

Volvo also vowed to start assembling more cars at its US factory in Ridgeville.

It’s a move that’s surely going to be welcomed by the Biden Administration, which has been working on getting more electric vehicle production into the country as part of its agenda.
