Volvo to go all electric with it’s entire range of models by 2019

Premium Car manufacturer Volvo to go all electric with its entire range of models will be the first company to do so. Swedish Company owned by China’s Geely says that every car in its range will have an electric powertrain by 2019.

Volvo plans to have every car in its range to be electrified and plans of launching five fully electric models between 2019 – 2021. Two of these new models will be part of Polestar high-performance sub-brand, which Volvo plans to revive.

The company says the announcement marks “the historic end of cars powered by petrol and diesel and places electrification at a core of its future business”. Volvo was previously owned by Ford and was bought over by China’s Geely in 2010 for USD $1.8 billion.

“People increasingly demand electrified cars and we want to respond to our customers’ current and future needs”, says Håkan Samuelsson, chief executive.

Recently Honda announced its joint venture with Hitachi Automated Systems(HAS) to produce electric cars which would constitute two-thirds of its total production line.

“These five cars will be supplemented by a range of petrol and diesel plug-in hybrid and mild hybrid 48-volt options on all models,” Volvo said. “This means that there will in future be no Volvo cars without an electric motor.”

“This announcement marks the end of the sole combustion engine-powered car,” said Mr. Samuelsson. “We have said we plan to have sold a total of 1 million electrified cars by 2025. When we said it we meant it. This is how we are going to do it.”

Volvo Electric Hybrid Car

The Gothenburg-based company will continue to produce pure combustion-engine Volvos from models launched before that date but said it would introduce cars across its model line-up that ranged from fully electric cars to plug-in hybrids.

Volvo has invested heavily in new models and plants since being bought by Zhejiang Geely Holding Group from Ford Motor Co. in 2010, establishing a niche in a premium auto market dominated by larger rivals such as Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz and BMW.

Will Volvo’s new shift into green car segment for all models, place them above the rest in the Auto industry. Let us know in comments below if you will buy an electric vehicle in near future.

  • Megan Thomas^I ordered a small but got a medium&#44 which would be fine if even the medium fit. My 8 year old wears a 8-10&#44 the medium was large on him. Would have been nice otherwise7~4|Starcatcher^It was a gift and he loved it. The print was very clear.~5|mery^My 5-year-old son was so looking forward to getting this t-shirt and finally when it arrived was the wrong size!!!. Instead of the SMALL we’ve recierved a MEDIUM. the MEDIUM size looks for a 10-year-old boy. So disappointed!~4|Damien C. McBride^My son was all smiles when he opened the package containing this shirt. It may be his favorite shirt now.~5|cooper^Perfect for a FNAF fan. Good quality~5|Danielle^my son has been wanting this shirt for awhile&#44 so for his birthday I bought it&#44 he loves it!!~4|SlyDoggyDogg68^Product is as described&#44 packaged well. One of most favorite shirts of my 6 year old…~5|Mary Ann^My son cant stop wearing this shirt… I am happy with this purchase.~5|Mahm3^Good quality. My son loves it.~5|MojoDonut^Fits as expected&#44 good quality shirt.~5|scott kinney^This shirt was a huge disappointment as the main Graphics were totally washed out and Faded I want a refund the shirt is of no use to me. The image shown on the Amazon site was a sharply defined graphic but in reality mine is just a smeared Mess&#44 false advertising or my product that I received is defective.~3|Albert C. Marth^Disappointed in this shirt! Sizing is smaller than expected. Excellent graphics….but that is all I can say~4|Joel L.^Dont really have any complaints about this shirt&#44 it still feels cheap&#44 but not many Mustang GT shirts out there for me to show off my Mustang pride. The printing on the shirt feels cheap and will probably wear out sooner than later&#44 so I am washing it in gentel cycle and using Woolite detergent.~3|sayles casey jr^SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH YOUR SIZING&#44HAVE PURCHASED THE SAME SIZE FOR YEARS NOW&#44THIS WAS SMALLER.~4|Randy Hampton^My favorite Pony shirt!~5|Guadalupe^Amazing productpicture is good quality and holds up well wit washing so dfar. I was expecting it by Christmas but is came two days later. Nothing bad with the shirt tho. My father always gets complements on it.~5|K. Roth^Was a gift for my Brother and he still wears it all the time!~5|Terry Lee Davis&#44 Sr.^Garment arrived as scheduled. The print was super clear and of great quality. It fit as described and overall quality was outstanding!~5|Tricia Voyles^My husband absolutely loved this shirt. He collects most Mustang stuff&#44 and really liked this shirt and it fit really well.~5|MrsHunt^Hubby loved it!~5|

  • homeshopper^Nice basic tee for the price. Fabric is pretty thin. Ordered based on the recommended size chart / measurements and find the fit a little too snug. If you like a very snug fit&#44 order as recommended. If you want a fit more like what is shown in the photo&#44 order up a size. If I order more of this item in other colors&#44 I plan to go up a size for a more comfortble fit.~4|Caroline Gujarati^I ordered this shirt in gray first&#44 just to see how it fit. According to their sizing chart&#44 I ordered up one size and it fits perfectly. So I bought the black and the white too. These are great basic tees. They fit really well. They are longer than what I usually find in stores&#44 which means I don’t have to worry about it riding up. And the fabric is thick enough that it keeps my bra hidden without having to be baggy&#44 an anomaly these days. I practically live in these shirts (those basic colors go with everything) and four months and plenty of washes later&#44 they still look and fit like brand new. No shrinkage&#44 the white is still crisp and bright and the black has not dulled at all. I just ordered a few of the brighter colors to add to my collection. Best tshirt I have found in years. Definitely buy it!~5|shoogz^I am petite 5’3″ 119 lbs small chest but big bottom…After reading reviews i decided to order up one size (i wear a small and sometimes an xs in certain brands such as roxy etc) but they didn’t have a medium in grey so i took a chance and ordered up two sizes and got a Large! I am soooo happy that i did! I love the fit&#44 it still has the form fitting look to compliment my figure but it is just loose enough&#44 love the longer length&#44 and it is so comfy i plan to order every color! I make t shirts with heat press materials but i decided to keep it plain i loved it so much!~5|Miss_B^Perfect fit! I’m about 5’4″&#44 100 lbs.&#44 and ordered Medium. Very soft&#44 comfortable&#44 and I fell in love with it after trying it on for the first time. It hugs my figure a bit&#44 but I think it’s still pretty modest. I read reviews saying the material is thin&#44 but I don’t see it being too thin. Could be because I got purple and it’s darker? Or maybe that’s the reason it hugs me or shows my bra line in the back a little? It also shows the button on my pants (but lots of shirts do&#44 I think). But anyway&#44 I try to dress modestly&#44 and while this shirt hugs me a little more than I’d like and the sleeves are a bit short&#44 I think it’s still pretty great. It’s one of my new favorite shirts. I was very impressed it fit me perfectly. I do have a small size though&#44 and if this is a junior size maybe that’s why it fits well. I am also impressed I don’t have to worry about someone seeing up the sleeves. The shirt comes with a little red tag on the outer lower left side. I’m not a seamstress&#44 but I didn’t notice any sloppy stitching or deformities in the shirt. So: Truly soft&#44 fits well&#44 great color&#44 not see-through&#44 cute! P.S. The pics were taken with a bright above head light. The shadows on this shirt aren’t always as defined&#44 I believe.~5|M. Schroeder^LOVE this shirt. I’m a teacher and needed a yellow tee shirt to wear for school and this was perfect. It is REALLY soft&#44 the color is great and the fit is very flattering with the cap sleeves and the way it curves in at the sides. I wear an adult medium and so I bought a large bc it’s juniors and it was a perfect fit! Going to check out other colors right now.~5|Claudia Vilagi^I didn’t notice that this is a Girl’s shirt&#44 and I ordered the small size&#44 so my bad&#44 but it is much too tight for me. It has a fitted cut and would flatter a young girl’s figure very well&#44 but I’m a slender 60-year-old&#44 not a tween or teen. The fabric is thin so most will want to wear something underneath&#44 but the dark purple does give make it somewhat opaque. It is a really nice shade of purple and the fabric is soft and smooth. I deducted just one star for my size issue&#44 if not for that&#44 I’d have given it 4 stars for good tailoring&#44 good colour&#44 and fabric quality.~3|Middleone^This was purchased for my daughter to tie-dye&#44 specifically because the item description says it is 100% cotton&#44 but the tag in the shirt says 60% cotton/ 40% polyester. In addition&#44 the size chart given for this shirt is ludicrously off – several buyers said to size up one size but I would recommend 2 sizes if you don’t want it to be revealingly tight. I purchased a size large&#44 which should have accommodated a 39″ bust and it was very close fitting on a slim 34A teenager. Very disappointing&#44 because the style is cute&#44 but the information is inaccurate to the point of being fraudulent.~3|A. Owens^Pretty tight and very thin. I was a little disappointed by this shirt. Glad it was available with free returns.~3|Courtney S.^Cute basic shirt. Does run a tad small&#44 so if you don’t want the shirt to be very fitted&#44 consider ordering a size up. I bought this for my teen daughter who normally wears a size 6 or M in women’s sizing and the medium on this shirt was snug. It is stretchy so she tugged the fabric and loosened it enough to suit her liking and we made it work&#44 but if I ordered this shirt again&#44 I would go with a Large.~4|Amazon Customer^These are juniors’ size shirts&#44 so with that in mind&#44 if you’re an adult they will run small for you. I’m 5’4″ 120lbs and a fairly average build&#44 except my bust is only 32″. I ordered a medium in this shirt(I normally wear an adult small and even those are roomy enough) and it was too small. It was tight in the bust and sleeves. I think maybe a large would have fit like a regular shirt for me&#44 maybe. Anyways&#44 it’s very slender cut through the waistline as well. And long. I’ll be returning because&#44 after two children&#44 my tummy pooch is a little too pronounced in this one. However&#44 if you have a flat belly and small chest&#44 it should work well for you.~4|

  • 928955 932237Its hard to search out knowledgeable individuals on this subject, but you sound like you realize what youre speaking about! Thanks 448183

  • Normally I do not read article on blogs, but I would like to say that this write-up very forced me to try and do so! Your writing style has been amazed me. Thanks, very nice post.

  • An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a
    colleague who has been doing a little research on this. And he actually bought
    me breakfast due to the fact that I stumbled upon it for him…

    lol. So let me reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!

    But yeah, thanx for spending some time to discuss this
    subject here on your blog.

  • The server you ultimately choose just for this objective needs to be accordingly strong to
    adapt towards level of users specified by you. A lot of packs around apparently choose
    the realistic or perhaps the futuristic look this one gives
    Minecraft this phenomenal look that few other pack has got to offer.

    I was really excited, I thought of all the so-called things I could do with this mod.
