And, as you would expect from a Volvo, it is equipped with easy-to-use driving technology and advanced innovations to ensure unsurpassed comfort and safety for drivers and passengers.
Mr. Chris Wailes, Managing Director of Volvo Car (Thailand), explains Volvo’s electric vehicle mission: “In 2017, Volvo Cars announced our commitment to electrification in the automotive industry with all new car models released from 2019 onwards to be plug-in hybrid vehicles or cars that use electric power batteries only and set a goal for 50% of all cars released by 2025 to be electric vehicles.
In 2017, we also initiated a innovative campaign to communicate about Plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) technology and our future direction of electric power by using a giant billboard to show the concept of clean energy and the design of our signature headlamps “Thors Hammer”. A lightning rod was installed on the billboard to convert lightning energy into electricity and create stunning light; this innovative idea captured the interest and attention of many people. The campaign also won the prestigious Gold Award at Adfest 2018 Thailand and Ad Stars 2018 in South Korea.”
Our concept presentation of ELECTRIFYING, DYNAMIC PERFORMANCE & SUSTAINABLE at this year’s Motor Show emphasizes our commitment to continue to accelerate towards a more sustainable future through electric-powered vehicles.”
