Volvo’s Electrified Vehicle

Today morning, Volvo announced that it has set the grand goal of selling a million electrified vehicles by 2025. “Electrified vehicles” is the industry umbrella term for hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles.

The company proposes to achieve this goal by offering “at least two hybrid versions of every model in its range.” Moreover, it will be releasing its first all-electric car in 2019.

In a release, Håkan Samuelsson, Volvo Cars president and chief executive, said, “It is a deliberately ambitious target. It is going to be a challenge, but Volvo wants to be at the forefront of this shift to electrification.”

While the first Volvo EV will be significant, perhaps more striking is the two hybrid versions of every model the Swedish car maker makes. Some automakers offer both a hybrid and plug-in hybrid version of some of its models. However, none offers two hybridized versions of every model.

Underlining this transition to electric power, Volvo has developed two new floor pans, a scalable one and a modular one. The Scalable Power Architecture and the Compact Modular Architecture can support either a hybrid or a fully electric power train.

Out of these, the SPA underpins the larger, 90 and 60 series cars, and the CMA is designed for the smaller, 40-series cars that Volvo says will be launched soon.

Currently, Volvo’s hybrid flagship power train is the T8 Twin Engine, which consists of a turbocharged and supercharged plug-in hybrid that produces nearly 400 horsepower.

The new generation of Volvos are technologically oriented and striking to behold. It is hoped that they will also be economical.
