    Volvo Cars was the first widely recognized car manufacturer to fully embrace electrification. It aims to sell only all-electric vehicles by 2030.

    In the Philippines, Volvo is the first luxury car brand to introduce plug-in hybrid vehicles. It also became the first luxury car brand to offer an all-electrified lineup in the country, when it debuted a range of mild hybrid models in 2022.

    “We are thrilled to introduce two purely electrifying models – the Volvo C40 and the Volvo XC40. These models both carry Volvo Cars’ ambition of becoming a fully electric car company by 2030. We believe it’s time for the Philippine market to discover the benefits of driving a pure electric Volvo car and experience for themselves what sustainable mobility is,” Volvo Philippines President and Chief Executive Officer Atty. Albert Arcilla stated.
