The AP reports:
Volvo says it will make only electric vehicles by 2030….Henrik
Green, Volvo’s chief technology officer, adds, “There is no long-term future for cars with an internal combustion engine.”
GM made a similar announcement earlier this year, with its all electric vehicle goal set for 2035.
The New York Times says Volvo’s decision is:
one of the most ambitious proposals and ratchets up the pressure on others to follow suit.
The Times adds:
Where once automakers bragged about horsepower and acceleration, now they are competing to be the greenest.
