A us From today's perspective, we will no longer develop a new generation of diesel engines, ”said CEO Hakan Samuelsson of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. The Swedes want to further develop the new diesel, which was only introduced in 2013, and adapt it to the future Euro 6c emissions limit, but after that the financial outlay for a new design would be too high. From the current perspective, the current generation of engines will remain on offer until around 2023.

Instead, Volvo sees its salvation in the electrification of the entire model range. This involves gentle electrical support for the gasoline engine via a 48-volt electrical system, plug-in hybrids and fully electric vehicles. Volvo plans to bring its first all-electric car onto the market in 2019.
