Volvo to electrify all models from 2019
The first electric models from Volvo will be built in China, but will eventually also be produced in its European and American plants.

Volvos launched from 2019 will have electric motors, the car maker has announced as it places “electrification at the core of its future business”.

The move will be the first of its kind in the automotive industry and will see the end of purely combustion engine Volvos.

Volvo boss, Håkan Samuelsson said: “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.

“This announcement marks the end of the solely combustion engine-powered car.

“Volvo Cars has stated that it plans to have sold a total of one million electrified cars by 2025.”
