Learn About Volvo's Electrifying Plans for 2019

Volvo Cars has a new initiative, and it's slated to light the world on fire when it rolls out in a couple of years. The Swedish car company is planning for every one of the vehicles it launches after 2019 to have an electric motor under its hood. In a press release on the brand's website, Volvo said the move would signify the end of cars with an internal combustion engine for Volvo.

President and chief executive, Håkan Samuelsson, said the shift is ultimately for the consumer because there is a growing demand for electrified cars.

"You can now pick and choose whichever electrified Volvo you wish," he said.

Volvo Cars says it will debut a collection of electrified vehicles across its model range and embrace fully electric, plug-in hybrid cruisers and mild hybrid vehicles. Volvo plans to introduce five fully electric vehicles between 2019 and 2021. Volvo's website said three of the new cars be from Volvo and two will be from Polestar, Volvo Cars’ performance car counterpart.

The cars will be complemented by a range of diesel and petrol plug-in hybrid and mild hybrid 48 volt options. The electric vehicle plan aligns with Volvo's promise to minimize its environmental impact and plan to make future cities cleaner. The brand is also working to reduce carbon emissions of not only its products but its operations as well. By 2025, it aims to have climate neutral manufacturing operations.
