Volvo Cars, the versatile car maker announced that one of the most important aspects for all the company, indeed the comprehensive electrification strategies will be further enhanced and upgraded. The plan is to create fully electric and safe vehicles by 2019. And as a part from this strategy, the Swedish manufacturer now expects that the tendency for customers to buy electric vehicles will rise up to 10%.
As you know, the first element of the electrification strategy requires the introduction of plug-in hybrid models of the 90 and 60 series. This process has already begun with the launch of the T8 Twin Engine All-Wheel Drive plug-in system of the latest XC90 SUV and will continue with the new S90 premium sedan and some more forthcoming models.
The Swedish car maker will further enhance its products and offerings by a special range of smaller 40 series, based on the recently developed Compact Modular Architecture system. This would make Volvo Car Group one of the few automobile manufacturers that would offers new architectures designed to support both plug-in and pure electric drivetrain configuration.
