Volvo Announces Plans for Micro and Plug-in Hybrids
Paris, France - Volvo Car Corporation has unveiled an aggressive plan to release a hyrid and significantly cut the CO2 emissions of its vehicles before 2012. The announcement was made at the Paris Motor Show.
In 2011, a micro-hybrid powertrain will be introduced with a start-stop function for the combustion engine, and a year later, the company will unveil a diesel hybrid, followed by a plug-in hybrid in the future. No decisions have been made regarding price, or which countries will offer the hybrid systems.
“Environmental focus is naturally a high priority,” said Stephen Odell, president and CEO. “In parallel with work on a diesel hybrid, we are conducting an intensive hunt to cut CO2 emissions throughout the driveline range.”
