Volvo Won’t Launch New Models Until Current Lineup Gets Electrified
Volvo takes a little pause to its lineup-extension to strengthen sales and continue electrification of existing models.
Currently, Volvo offers a lot of plug-in hybrids: XC90, S90, V90 and XC60 with a new S60 and V60 coming.
The goal by 2020 is to increase overall sales to 800,000 annually, up from over 570,000 in 2017.
The first all-electric model to be introduced by Volvo’s Polestar brand in late 2019.
It means that we should expect a new electric Volvo in 2020 and we believe it will be XC40 BEV.
“The XC40 will receive a hybrid powertrain in autumn this year, and its also expected to be the first Volvo to go fully electric. Volvo-owned performance brand Polestar is expected to launch its pure electric vehicle first, which will closely resemble the Concept 40.2 shown last year.”
