Volvo is joining the electric car manufacturing industry.
This was revealed in a statement by Volvo CEO, Håkan Samuelsson.
“We believe that the time has come for electrified cars to cease being a niche technology and enter the mainstream. We are confident that in two years’ time 10 percent of Volvo’s global sales will be electrified cars."
Not much is known about Volvo's electric car, other than it's delivery date, 2019.
It is also expected to be a crossover with a range of approximately 325 miles, according to Autocar.
