All new Volvo car models will be battery-powered from 2019

Commenting on today's announcement Paul Morozzo, clean air campaigner at Greenpeace UK, said:

“Volvo has recognised the huge gains to be made by leading the way in electric. We know electric vehicles are the future, and it’s not a case of if, but when, old style cars powered by climate wrecking fossil fuels will be a thing of the past. Instead of continuing to invest in new diesel technology, all car manufacturers should be turning their attention solely to electric and hybrid technology.”
