Volvo Cars plans to sell one million electrified cars by 2025. It has announced that every Volvo model from 2019 will have an electric motor. It has been over a century since the invention of the internal combustion engine and now electrification is entering as the new player.
The technology to make it possible and the customer demand for electrified cars is driving Volvo’s commitment to introducing three levels of electrification in its model range. Mild hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and pure electric versions will be offered.
- Mild hybrid will involve a 48 volt system with battery storage and an electric motor that is also a starter and generator. This technology will act as a stepping stone to full electrification and help reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
- Plug-in hybrid involves a twin engine arrangement allowing different driving modes. Pure electric, balanced hybrid, and performance drive modes.
- Battery electric involves the use of pure fully electric drive train.
Volvo plans to launch five fully electric cars between 2019 and 2021. Three will be Volvo models and two will be high performance electrified cars from Polestar, Volvo Cars’ performance car division.
With these options there will be no Volvo cars in the future without an electric motor. The pure internal combustion engine cars are gradually being phased out and replaced by internal combustion cars that are enhanced with electrified options or pure electric cars.
Volvo Cars is committed to minimizing its environmental impact and making the cities of the future cleaner. Volvo Cars is focused on reducing the carbon emissions of both its products as well as its operations. It aims to have climate neutral manufacturing operations by 2025.
