Volvo’s product road map includes five EVs and two PHEVs

Volvo not too long ago hosted a gathering in Miami for North and South American retailers. A number of attendees, maybe pleased with what Volvo needed to say, shared some particulars on the proceedings with Automotive Information, Volvo’s pledge to turn out to be an all-EV model by 2030 will start with 5 new electrical autos and two plug-in hybrids within the coming years. First up is a full-sized, three-row crossover mentioned to get its vibe from the Idea Recharge. We determine this would be the long-rumored and infrequently canceled XC100, however that is solely an informed guess. We have seen no spy pictures of such a car but, however AN experiences gross sales aspirations for the full-sizer are about 20,000 items for subsequent 12 months. If that is the case, one thing ought to seem quickly.

Round two years after the potential XC100 comes an EV codenamed V546 that AN reported on earlier this month. Stated to fit in between the 185-inch-long XC60 and 195-inch-long XC90, this tweener may very well be in regards to the size of the 189-inch Ford Edge. The sources declare it would journey on a brand new electrical platform, which may very well be the SPA2 bones that may help the approaching electrical XC90 and that the Idea Recharge electrical crossover examine (pictured) sits on. This one goes into manufacturing within the US, at Volvos’ Ridgeville, South Carolina plant, and in China. The plan is to promote 100,000 items yearly.

In some unspecified time in the future, the XC60 small midsize crossover will get a battery-electric variant. The fourth EV can be a dinky silent runner that slides in beneath the XC40 Recharge. Referred to previously because the XC10, XC20 and XC30, earlier reportage claims it will journey on the Sustainable Expertise Structure (SEA) sourced from dad or mum firm Geely. The fifth EV was solely talked about as being a sedan, which is one other mysterious entry.

The S90 and XC90 are getting new PHEV generations, the crossover nonetheless anticipated to inaugurate correct names to the Swedish automaker’s lineup.

Volvo’s planning a hiring spree for the South Carolina plant that solely makes the S60 sedan in the intervening time. One of many new EV crossovers will begin down strains there later this 12 months, together with Polestar’s middleweight efficiency crossover, then the potential XC100 (or no matter its correct title is) begins meeting there in 2023.
