Since first announcing its commitment to electric vehicles in 2017, Volvo has continued to develop plug-in hybrids or electric battery-powered vehicles that have been at the forefront of the automotive industry. The Volvo booth at this year’s automotive expo, which is themed around the Volvo Recharge, further reinforces the brand’s mission and vision to be a leading brand of high-performance vehicles driven by clean energy so as drivers can power down the road with world-class advanced safety technology, outstanding driving features, and the one and only classic Scandinavian look that defines Volvo.
Mr. Chris Wailes, Managing Director of Volvo Car (Thailand) said “Volvo is fully committed to steady and energized growth in 2021, with the introduction of our new Recharge Battery Electric Vehicle, this is in addition to the previous plug-in hybrid electric engine cars we have already introduced into the Thai automotive market. In the next year, we will focus on our battery electric vehicles; this is all part of our future-forward approach to staying ahead of the curve when it comes to technology and motoring advancements. We are proud to present the latest versions of our Recharge cars, the S90 Recharge, which uses a 407 hp plug-in Hybrid engine and has a new front and rear design update with a starting price of just 3.29 million baht, and the XC40 Recharge Plug-in Hybrid with a starting price of only 2.09 Million baht, it’s powered by a 262 horsepower engine, which makes this model the most cost-effective car in its segment.”
“Volvo develops all models based on the concept of ‘By putting people at the center of everything we do’, and our recharge vehicles are the personification of this belief by significantly reducing emissions to the atmosphere. Our technology reduces overall PM2.5 dust levels and contributes to a better quality of life for everyone. Moreover, as well as playing our part in helping to protect the environment we have also improved the level of air quality in the cabin with an upgraded air purification system, our Advanced Air Cleaner Technology can remove more than 95% of fine particles, which no other car model on the market can do, thus effectively reducing the impact on drivers’ health caused by air pollution.”
