Volvo Cars aims for 50% fully electric sales by 2025

Volvo electric hatchback

The stated goal of the company is that by 2025, half of the Volvo vehicles sold to be electric, a bald expansion of the previous commitment of having either a mild hybrid, a plug-in hybrid or a battery electric vehicle for every new model releases from 2019 onwards.

China is a big market for Volvo (hardly surprising as they're owned by China's Geely) so initiatives in China to push towards 20 per cent of all auto sales being electric by 2025 has spurred Volvo to push hard to electrify their range fully.

The Polestar 1's high price mostly reflects the car's hybrid performance, as its electric motor and internal combustion engine produce a combined output of about 600 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque.

For those of you who are into specs, the Polestar 1 coupé produces a total of 600 hp and 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque and delivers 150 km (93 miles) of pure electric driving range - the longest of any hybrid vehicle in the world.

Volvo Cars now produces the S90 and S90L T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrids in China.

Volvo has set itself a target for half of all its global auto sales to be pure-electric by 2025, driven by the goal to strengthen its position in China. These PHEVs are the XC90, XC60 and the new XC40.

From start of production in Ghent in November 2017, the XC40 was available with a D4 diesel or a T5 gasoline four-cylinder Drive-E powertrain. The XC40 is also be the first Volvo model to be available with Volvo Cars' new 3-cylinder engine. In 2018, Volvo has achieved a 23 percent growth in sales for the first quarter in China, providing it with a boost to record a 14% global increase in the year-to-date. The country is also Volvo's largest market, selling more than 100,000 cars there a year ago.
