To support this, we are committed to launching a new electric vehicle every year for next 5 years. In addition, we have the capabilities to assemble our own pure EVs for the local and other ASEAN markets.”

This is in line with the Volvo Cars global ambitions – 50% contribution from its pure electric line-up by 2025; a fully electric car company by 2030; and becoming a climate-neutral company by 2040.
