Volvo Recharge. Responsible luxury.
We introduce Volvo Recharge – our new line of advanced pure electric and plug-in hybrid cars, designed to give you a refined and more sustainable driving experience. The cars you trust to protect your family, now also help protect their future.
Every new Volvo car we launch will be electrified.
Today, we are the only traditional car maker to offer plug-in hybrid options on all our models. And over the next five years, we will launch five new fully electric cars. It is our ambition that by 2025, half of the cars we sell will be electric.
Introducing the XC40 Recharge
The first pure electric Volvo SUV is here. Designed for the way you live, and built to help keep you and the planet safer.
Electric is not enough
It’s a start. But it’s not the entire solution. To protect the safety of our planet, we must do more than merely electrify our cars. Our vision is to be climate neutral across our full value chain by 2040 – a decade ahead of the Paris Agreement goal. So everything we do, has to be recharged.
Supply chain. Recharged.
We aim to reduce supply chain carbon emissions – a major part of our overall value chain emissions – by 25% per car by 2025 compared to 2018. This includes emissions generated from the production of components and materials, and from the extraction of minerals and metals. We’ll work towards this vision in several ways, including helping our suppliers to increase their renewable energy use, as well as using more sustainable materials in our cars and reducing waste. We already have an ambition that at least 25% of all plastics used in new Volvo cars launched after 2025 will be made from recycled materials.
