Håkan Samuelsson, Johan van Zyl.
“We will introduce our first all-electric car in 2019, and by 2025 I can see us offering a pure electric model in all of our ranges.”
Volvo CEO Håkan Samuelsson is future-oriented and doubts that diesel will last much longer than 2020, when “twin engine (hybrid) and all electric cars will become more favourable cost-wise.”
“We are on our way of achieving our target of having 50 percent of our mix in hybrids by 2020.”
Toyota’s European President & CEO Johan van Zyl is another who prepares for a less fossil fuel heavy future. His colleague Didier Leroy, Toyota’s VP, added that the fuel cell car the carmkaer is developing with BMW will be ready in three to five years.
