Volvo Cars are committed to becoming a leader in the fast-growing premium electric car market and plan to become a fully electric car company by 2030. By then, the company intends to only sell fully electric cars and phase out any car in its global portfolio with an internal combustion engine, including hybrids. The company's transition towards becoming a fully electric car maker is part of its ambitious climate plan, which seeks to consistently reduce the life cycle carbon footprint per car through concrete action.

Volvo Cars' move towards full electrification comes together with an increased focus on online sales and a more complete, attractive, and transparent consumer offer under the name Care by Volvo, and to promote this, the carmaker's fully electric models will be available online only. The 2030 ambition represents an acceleration of Volvo Cars' electrification strategy, driven by strong demand for its electrified cars in recent years and a firm conviction that the market for combustion engine cars is a shrinking one.
