Volvo To Go Leather-Free And 100% Electric By 2030

Volvo have announced their plans to only sell electric cars by 2030. Volvo have said they plan to phase out any car in its global portfolio with an internal combustion engine, including hybrids. To add to their sustainability goals, Volvo have also said that they plan on going leather-free.

Volvo have made it clear that they are getting serious about sustainability from engine to interiors. 

“The company’s transition towards becoming a fully electric car maker is part of its ambitious climate plan, which seeks to consistently reduce the life cycle carbon footprint per car through concrete action.” said Volvo.

“Instead of leather, we will use several different material alternatives, including sustainable vinyls and textiles. Volvo Cars has the ambition that by 2025, 25% of the material within our cars (by weight) will be recycled and bio-based.”

Volvo Cars launched its first fully electric car, the XC40 Recharge, in markets around the globe last year. This year Volvo revealed its second fully electric car, a new model in the 40 Series.

Henrik Green, Volvo’s chief technology officer said “There is no long-term future for cars with an internal combustion engine,” 

“We are firmly committed to becoming an electric-only car maker and the transition should happen by 2030. It will allow us to meet the expectations of our customers and be a part of the solution when it comes to fighting climate change.” said Green.

Electric cars and leather-free interiors are all part of Volvo’s plan to go carbon neutral by 2040.
