Volvo to build first EV in China

At Auto Shanghai, Volvo Cars has announced that its first full-electric car will be built in China, from where it will be exported globally. The decision to make its first electric car in the People’s Republic “highlights the central role China will play in Volvo’s electrified future and underlines its growing sophistication as a manufacturing centre for the automotive industry”, the press release reads.

China is the world’s largest market for fully electric and hybrid cars, which are crucial in addressing the air quality issues in its cities. Volvo has a commitment to sell 1 million EVs and (P)HEVs by 2025. It operates three manufacturing facilities in China. The company's first EV will go on sale in 2019.
