Volvo Plans EV For 2019, Aims To Sell 1 Million Electrified Cars By 2025

Auto manufacturers want to integrate a number of electrified vehicles in their range and Volvo is no exception.

The Swedish car company aims to sell a total of up to one million electric-assisted vehicles by 2025. It plans to do so by offering at least two hybrid variants of every model in its range and releasing its first all-electric car in 2019, as president and chief executive Håkan Samuelsson explained.

“It is a deliberately ambitious target. It is going to be a challenge, but Volvo wants to be at the forefront of this shift to electrification.”

Needless to say, Volvo already has a head-start in the business (compared to other car manufacturers), preparing itself for the significant adjustment for the better part of the last five years – or so it says.

It has even developed two all-new modular vehicle architectures for larger and smaller cars – Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) and Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) – that are designed to incorporate hybrid or full-electric car technology.

The SPA platform will be the base of Volvo’s larger 90 and 60 series, while the CMA will soon launch a global range of smaller 40 series, all of which will have at least one electrified model.
