One of the most important concerns to humanity is clean energy resources to prevent climate change. This means that one of the most important transport mediums -Cars- are supposed to be clean and friendly to the environment. Volvo knows this and has taken the initiative to promote Green fueled cars that run by electricity instead of the usual engines that need fuel and contribute to pollution.
Volvo has recently stated through a blog post on their official webpage that they want to go full-electric and offer only hybrid/Full Electric motors from 2019 onwards. Including but not limited to 5 electric in the 2021 Lineup. The company however, will still produce full-combustion versions of vehicles which will be gradually upgraded and tuned for performance. This means that they aim to produce the last bunch of combustion vehicles at 2025.
This is a commendable effort by Volvo to take care of the environment. Since climate change is still one of the most important issues to be taken care of, it’s important to mention however. That Electric cars have been around since the late 1800’s, but right now. In the modern age of technology, where inventions come out faster than you can blink. It has become extremely viable to make cars that are more environmentally friendly.
“This announcement marks the end of the solely combustion engine-powered car,” said Volvo Chief Executive Officer Hakan Samuelsson. “Volvo’s brand will be strengthened by electrification.” It is a good time to do so too, considering how every company has recently been forced to stop trying to make a profit off from gas companies in China and California. Cars manufacturers are also starting to lower costs and make better designs with improved batteries. So the transports will be safer and versatile, as well as economic. “This is about the customer,” said Samuelsson. “People increasingly demand electrified cars and we want to respond to our customers’ current and future needs. You can now pick and choose whichever electrified Volvo you wish.”
“We’ll get more attractive cars,” Samuelsson said. “This improves our competitive situation. It also goes back to Volvo’s brand values of protecting what’s important. We want to be a leading brand in terms of responsibility, safety and sustainability. So we think this suits us perfectly.” And to be honest, the future of the environment looks pretty bright with this safer decision. However, we are still a long way to go in the search for that utopian society that cares about its environment, and as long as there is an issue. The fight for the conservation of nature is not over yet.
