Volvo goes green

Corporation Volvo officially announced its decision to cease production diesel engines. This stage will be completed at the beginning of 2024, after which only hybrid and electric cars will remain in the company’s range.

It is planned that by 2030 Volvo will completely switch to electric power plants, and the company aims to become climate neutral by 2040. Essentially, this means that all harmful emissions associated with the production of Volvo cars will be offset by the absence of such emissions from the cars themselves, as well as through the introduction of a variety of environmental initiatives.

This important announcement was made by Volvo at the event Climate Week NYCdedicated to climate issues. The Swedish manufacturer becomes one of the first car brands to decisively abandon diesel engines. A similar decision was made Porsche back in 2018 in response to the crisis surrounding the diesel engine scandal (Dieselgate). In Volvo’s case, reasons for phasing out diesels include stricter emissions regulations, changing vehicle demand patterns, and a focus on electrification.
