Volvo signals end of road for diesel and petrol cars

Robert Lea and Graeme paton | The times | 7 July 2017

PA’s Charlie Henderson, a roads expert, is quoted in a news article in The Times on Volvo becoming the first carmaker to abandon diesel and petrol-only vehicles. 

The article explains that all new models produced by Volvo will, within two years, be electric or hybrid. Volvo are set to launch five new fully electric models between 2019 and 2021.

The article also goes on to say that Volvo predicts that it will sell a million electric or hybrid vehicles by 2025.

On Volvo’s move, Charlie says: “Other car manufacturers will definitely follow. The cost of producing combustion engines is huge and the question is, are they going to continue selling them in big numbers going forward? Probably not.”
