Volvo will launch its first all-electric car in 2019

 

During Auto Shanghai Show, Volvo Cars announced that it will build its first fully electric car in China.

The all new model will be based on Volvo's Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) for smaller cars, and will be available worldwide in 2019.

The decision to make its first electric car in China highlights the central role the country will play in Volvo's electrified future and underlines China's growing sophistication as a manufacturing centre for the automotive industry.

 

"Volvo Cars fully supports the Chinese government's call for cleaner air as outlined in the latest five-year plan. It is fully in-line with our own core values of environmental care, quality and safety," said Håkan Samuelsson, chief executive of Volvo Cars. "We believe that electrification is the answer to sustainable mobility."

 

 

China is the world's largest sales market for electrified cars and has ambitious targets to expand sales of fully electric and hybrid cars in order to address air quality issues in its cities.

 

Volvo has a commitment to sell a total of one million electrified cars – including fully electric cars and hybrids – by 2025. It is also developing another fully electric car on its bigger Scalable Product Architecture (SPA). The Swedish company also plans to offer plug-in hybrid versions of every model.

 

Volvo has three manufacturing facilities in China : in Daqing, which makes its 90 series cars, Chengdu, which makes its 60 series cars, and Luqiao, which will make its 40 series cars.

 

Driving using the electricity in a Volvo is already a reality thanks to the XC90 T8 Twin Engine and its plug-in hybrid powertrain.
