Volvo COO shares details about company’s first fully electric car
During the course of a recent conversation with Autocar magazine, Swedish automaker Volvo’s COO Jonathan Goodman has disclosed a few details about the first fully electric car to be launched by the company.
Goodman told Autocar that Volvo will launch its new range of electrified vehicles starting with the forthcoming ‘Polestar 2.’ The executive said that although the electric car does not have the Volvo branding, its design is mainly based on company’s dazzling 40.2 concept.
According to reports, Polestar 2 will have the capability to deliver an impressive 400bhp, and its expected range of 350 miles will surpass the range of the Jaguar I-Pace electric SUV as well as the Tesla Model 3 electric car.
With regard to the price of the Polestar 2, Goodman has revealed that the fully electric car will be priced between €30,000 and €50,000. As such, at the mentioned pricing, the cost of the car will fall in the middle bracket of the prevalent prices of electric cars.
Meanwhile, in connection with Volvo’s electric vehicle (EV) plans, it is pertinent to point out that the Swedish automaker is the only renowned car brand to claim that, with effect from 2019, all the new cars produced and sold by the company will be either fully electric vehicles or will be equipped with a hybrid motor.
