Volvo to boost EV sales by 2025
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.
