Volvo Cars to end diesel car production in early 2024

Volvo, the Swedish automaker, is taking a bold step toward electrification. At Climate Week NYC, they announced that they will stop producing diesel-powered cars by early 2024. This move comes as part of their ambitious plan to exclusively sell electric vehicles by 2030 and become climate-neutral by 2040.
"In a few months, the last diesel-powered Volvo will roll off the assembly line, making us pioneers in this shift," said Volvo Cars CEO Jim Rowan. But it's not just about their own transformation. Rowan called for global leadership in the fight against climate change, urging both industry and political leaders to step up.

This decision follows Volvo's 2022 move to offload internal combustion engine development, signaling their commitment to an electric future. Volvo's move is a clear signal of the changing times in the automotive industry, inspiring others to follow suit in the quest for a livable tomorrow!
