Magnus Holst, Volvo Cars' press chief, confirmed the company's commitment to hybrid vehicles, which combine petrol and electric power sources, as part of their transition strategy.
Volvo Cars' decision signals a definitive end to an era, underlining their dedication to a sustainable, EV-focused future. The last diesel model to roll off the assembly line, an XC90, marks a symbolic milestone in Volvo's journey towards a net-zero future for the auto giant.

          Insane that it took this long. Nine years? The VW diesel scandal was uncovered in 2015! Absolutely pathetic and unforgivable. We're doomed if corporations refuse to pivot faster than this.

                                  This is reflecting the company's resolute shift toward electric vehicles and sustainable practices. This strategic decision aligns with Volvo's ambitious goal to exclusively offer electric vehicles by 2030, emphasizing their commitment to environmental responsibility and innovation. Together we can do it and together we are the solution to climate crisis.
