Volvo Taking a Bold Steps Forward In Setting Goals For Electric

After announcing in 2017 that they would be offering an electric motor option in all vehicles produced in 2019 and beyond, Volvo is doubling down on its commitment to electric. In a recent press release, the Swedish car maker stated that they plan to have electric vehicles make up at least of half of their sales by the year 2025.

The initial move to electric motors is only for vehicles produced for the 2019 year and beyond, and even those will only have some form of electric option; either hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or fully electric. The 2025 target and 50% mark are for fully electric vehicles.

With three of its major production facilities in China, the move towards hybrids and electric cars makes sense for Volvo. China has a nationwide goal that is very similar to that of Volvo’s: they hope to have 20% of new car sold to be electric by 2025, a timeframe that matches Volvo’s target date for 50% of their new sales to be electric.

By 2030, China aims for electric vehicles to make up 100% of new cars sold. Volvo has already started to make inroads in the Chinese market as well; showing off some their newest plugin hybrids at the 2018 Beijing Auto Show.

With Big Plans In China, Volvo Will Face Challengers

While the 2025 goals of Volvo may seem lofty to some, it’s even more challenging when you consider that the manufacturer does not currently make a fully electric vehicle. China is one of Volvo’s biggest markets and they’re already behind some other major auto makers that can claim the same, but are already offering several electric options. (Volkswagen is one that immediately springs to mind.)

In spite of other manufacturers already presenting electric vehicles, there are not many that are made and priced for the average consumer. This is what Volvo is hoping they can capitalize on, just as Tesla and Volkswagen are aiming to do the same.

China presents a lot of opportunity for automakers, especially those that are leading the conversion to electric cars. The country has quickly pivoted its production to electric and has just as quickly become the world leader in electric or hybrid cars on the road. The government backing of the transition is only logical, since the country has the most drivers in the world, as well as the emissions issues that come with that many combustion engines on the road.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
