Volvo will turn out to be a fully electric company by 2030: by this period, the brand’s lineup will remain without cars with internal combustion engines, in particular, hybrids. This information was recently shared by the company’s press center.

Soon, the Swedish brand is going to showcase a large number of cars that will have hybrid or all-electric powertrains.

The Swedish company said that by 2030 “consumers will accept electric cars” due to the fact that the infrastructure for such cars will expand, there will be many charging stations, and laws will also change.

Last year, the brand organized the presentation of its own debut all-electric car – the XC40 Recharge model. A similar car is driven by two electric motors with a capacity of 408 hp. (660 Nm).

The crossover can accelerate to 100 km / h in 4.9 seconds and accelerate to a maximum of 180 km / h. It is worth saying that the car is equipped with a 78 kW / h battery, thanks to which it is able to travel up to 400 km on a single charge.

In addition, some time ago, they demonstrated how the classic Volvo P1800 rushes in the snow. It should be emphasized that this car is driven by a 2.0 liter turbocharged 4-cylinder power unit.
