Volvo, the Swedish luxury vehicle manufacturer, has just made a rather surprising announcement – All new Volvo models launched from 2019 onwards will be fully electric.
The announcement means the end of the internal combustion engine (ICE) era for Volvo, placing electrical-powered engines at the core of its future business.
Between 2019 and 2021, Volvo will launch five full electric cars, three of which will be Volvo models and the other two will be high-performance electric cars from Polestar, the performance car arm of Volvo.
More details on the new models will be revealed at a later date.
Volvo, currently owned by Geely Holding of China, produces over half a million in car sales in 2016 and is one of the most well-known and respected cars in the world.Learn more from Volvo
