It is not easy for any car manufacturer to move into the new electric age overnight and as long as the market determines that there is room and demand for hybrid versions of the models, they will remain in the forefront as in the case of the Volvo XC90.
Its production Volvo XC90 will continue after the arrival of the electric successor and this is something that has been confirmed by official lips.
In a recent interview, its CEO Volvo, Hakan Samuelsson stated that the XC90 will remain on two production lines. Both the one that will deal with its electric version which is pSouth Carolina, USAas well as the second in Sweden producing hybrid versions.
THE Samuelsson wondered why the company should stop production at its factory in Torslanda, as it continues and there is demand for the model in its hybrid versions. THE Volvo will go one step further by upgrading the model to what it has to do with its design and image.
The truth is that for Volvo, such an image will not be unprecedented, as it is worth recalling that the Swedish company continued to produce XC90 first generation even after the launch of the second generation of the model. The electric model that will succeed the XC90, it is rumored to be called Embla and is expected to make its debut sometime this year.
