Going Electric

The new strategy 2030 plans to completely transition to electric vehicles. Rather than traditional partnerships with independent retailers, Volvo said that it plans to sell electric vehicles directly to customers and dealerships alike by using an online portal.

This represents a significant change of pace for the nearly 100-year-old company, and Volvo chief executive Håkan Samuelsson emphasized the need for change moving forward.

“To remain successful, we need profitable growth,” said Samuelsson. “So instead of investing in a shrinking business, we choose to invest in the future – electric and online. We are fully focused on becoming a leader in the fast-growing premium electric segment.”

Volvo announced the brand-new, electric, C40 Recharge. It is the first model in the company’s history to be designed as pure electric and it will also be -free. 

Customers may have to pay more for a fully electrified car. But the company expects the overall cost of manufacturing electric cars to fall to that of traditional vehicles shortly.

There is no long-term future for cars with an internal combustion engine and say they are fully committed to becoming an electric-only carmaker by 2030.

The majority of automobile producers have now announced plans for full electrification, and Volvo’s announcement follows similar pledges from Ford, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, and Volkswagen.
