The automaker Volvo will stop the development of diesel engines, according to the head of the Swedish company Hokan Samuelsson.

    “Diesel engines are very sophisticated and costly to upgrade to stricter environmental standards,” Mr. Samuelsson explained.

The head of the car company said that the manufacturer’s new cars initially will not have a diesel engine, and the diesel units in the brand’s line will not receive improvements and will be completely removed from production over time. Recall that Volvo previously reported that they will continue to work on the Drive-E diesel engine family introduced in 2013.
