But crossovers will still be a priority
The Swedish brand Volvo is gradually transferring its models to electric propulsion systems and the first production electric vehicles of the brand were the crossovers Volvo XC40, Volvo C40 and the latest Volvo EX90, at the presentation of which another, more compact, electric crossover was announced. Despite the audience’s demand for crossovers and the bet on such models, the company still does not intend to abandon sedans and station wagons, and new electric vehicles in these classes may appear in the coming years.
Volvo CEO Jim Rowan said in an interview with Autocar that the company will keep an eye on the demographics of its audience and will be ready to make a sedan and station wagon or even several of these models for customers if necessary.
“Suffice it to say that we play in all price segments and we have customers who need different cars for different operating scenarios. We will try to cover as many classes as possible. At the same time, having 40 different models is not our strategy. We have the advantage that we can adapt the same platform and the same units to models of different segments,” said Jim Rowan.
“If required, we will make electric sedans and station wagons and our technologies will allow us to take a step towards price parity between electric vehicles and cars with internal combustion engines,” said Jim Rowan. Recall that currently the line of Volvo sedans is represented by the S60 and S90 models, as well as the V60 and V90 station wagons, as well as the V90 Cross Country off-road station wagon.
