Volvo Cars aims for 50% of sales to be electric by 2025

News

Volvo is aiming for fully electric cars to make up 50% of its sales by 2025.

Info

The announcement builds on Volvo's 2017 industry-first announcement that all new models released from 2019 will be available as either a mild hybrid, plug-in hybrid or battery electric vehicle.

The company's strategy to generate half of its sales from electric cars by 2025 positions it as a powerful player in China, the world's leading market for electrified cars.

The Chinese government plans to have new-energy vehicles account for more than 20% of the country's annual car sales by 2025, which equates to more than seven million vehicles, based on Chinese government forecasts.

"Last year we made a commitment to electrification in preparation for an era beyond the internal combustion engine," said Håkan Samuelsson, president and CEO of Volvo Cars. "Today we reinforce and expand that commitment in the world's leading market for electrified cars. China's electric future is Volvo Cars' electric future."

Volvo currently produces the S90 and S90L T8 Twin Engine in China. This week marks the start of production for the XC60 T8 Twin Engine in China, meaning that soon all three Volvo China plants "“ Luqiao, Chengdu and Daqing "“ will produce either plug-in hybrid or battery electric cars.

At the Beijing Auto Show, Volvo will visually reinforce the company's position as an industry leader in electrification with all cars on display plugged-in. The event marks the first time the company displays only plug-in hybrid vehicles at an auto show.

In another first, side-by-side on stage, the company is displaying its three globally-available Volvo SUVs: the XC90, XC60 and the new XC40. Beijing also marks the first public appearance for the T5 plug-in hybrid version of the new XC40.
