Volvo to boost EV sales by 2025

Auto Today - - Update! -

TAK­ING THE trend of elec­tro­mo­bil­ity a notch higher, Volvo Cars de­clared that it in­tends to make 50 per cent of its sales through elec­tric cars by 2025. This builds on the com­pany’s ear­lier an­nounce­ment that said, all new mod­els from 2019 on­wards will be avail­able as ei­ther a mild hy­brid, plug-in hy­brid or bat­tery elec­tric ve­hi­cle. Volvo Cars cur­rently pro­duces the S90 and S90L T8 twin en­gine in China. This is fol­lowed by the pro­duc­tion for the XC60 T8 twin en­gine in China, which means that Volvo’s China plants will pro­duce ei­ther plug-in hy­brid or bat­tery elec­tric cars. In its first ap­pear­ance in Bei­jing, the com­pany also show­cased the T5 plug-in hy­brid ver­sion of the new XC40.
