The electrification of the cars of the Swedish brand is going even faster than expected. The management of the Swedish brand shared their views on this matter.

Volvo premium brand CEO Håkan Samuelsson spoke about the future of the brand’s models. According to him, the third generation of the flagship crossover XC90 will be the last new car with a classic internal combustion engine. Volvo will then concentrate on the development and production of all-electric vehicles.

The management of the Swedish brand plans to completely abandon the production of cars with internal combustion engines until such cars are banned. At the same time, we are not talking about the nearest period – the second generation Volvo XC90 appeared in 2015, which means that a global update of the model should be expected by 2025.

A couple of years ago, it was hard to believe that in the third decade of the 21st century, the rejection of the internal combustion engine could occur. Nevertheless, Håkan Samuelsson made a reservation and said that it is necessary to observe the demand for electric cars and the development of the corresponding infrastructure.

If we talk about all-electric cars, then at the moment there is only a small crossover XC40 Recharge in the Volvo lineup.

But in the near future, new models will appear – three different architectures have already been developed for this.
