Ever since the production of its first car in 1927, Volvo has guaranteed some of the most talked-about innovations in the automotive industry. For example, did you know that the modern seat belt as we know it today was invented by Volvo? The advanced safety system in all our cars is also admired worldwide. A pedestrian detection system that helps Volvo drivers drive in the safest conditions, the Scandinavian design that exudes both luxury and solidity. It makes Volvo Cars one of the most renowned premium car brands. What else makes Volvo so special? People. First and foremost, the millions of Volvo drivers and their passengers who rely on our brand every day. But also the more than 40,000 employees worldwide who make the difference and go for it every day. Sustainable and innovative: our basis for electrification At Volvo, we are looking forward to a new future, a future where electrification, autonomous driving and connection are the keywords. By 2025, we expect half of all Volvo cars sold to be fully electric cars. In addition, all newly developed Volvo models introduced since 2019 will have a variant equipped with an electric motor. More than a century after the invention of the internal combustion engine, we are making way for a new chapter in automotive history. Volvo is going to present a diverse range of all-electric, "plug-in hybrid" and "mild hybrid" models in the coming years. The first fully electric Volvo, the XC40 Recharge, has been produced at the Ghent plant since the second half of 2020. The second all-electric Volvo, the C40 Recharge, since the second half of 2021.
