Volvo became an unlikely tech superpower
But the car company’s tech savviness extends beyond just its safety systems. Volvo is also investing in technology and partnerships that will make its cars more convenient, efficient, and autonomous. By 2025, Volvo aims to sell one million electrified vehicles. To help it meet this goal, the company plans to only sell fully electric and hybrid cars starting in 2019. Volvo also plans to offer a plug-in hybrid version of every model, the company said. In total, the company will launch five fully electric vehicles between 2019 and 2021. Three of these vehicles will be Volvo models and two will be Polestar vehicles, which are cars made by Volvo's performance division.
