Volvo is a Swedish car company founded in 1927, this manufacturer is known for its build quality, and clear commitment to safety and sustainability. Therefore, in recent years, Volvo has been making a strong bet on the electrification of its vehicles, with the aim of becoming a carbon neutral company by 2030.
Therefore, for such a commitment Volvo has launched several hybrid and electric models, including the XC40 Recharge, which is a fully electric SUV, which we have even had the pleasure of testing.
First of all, know that despite a 12% drop in the number of cars sold in 2022, compared to 2021, which according to the brand was largely due to component restrictions and the effects of the pandemic, the truth is that in a field very specific, everything changed. We have had a very positive rise in the Volvo Recharge electrified range.
Volvo Recharge is the company’s electrified range!
According to figures released by Volvo itself, total sales in this electrified range is 33% in 2022, an increase of 6% compared to the previous year. In addition, in world numbers, the total number of 100% electric cars sold already represents 11%, thus exceeding twice the 4% of 2021.
The top 3 best-selling models by Volvo worldwide in 2022 were:
1st place – Volvo X60 2nd place – Volvo XC40 3rd place – Volvo XC90
Portugal surpasses the World average in Recharge Models!
Well, it seems that mentalities around here are already changing, and a lot. After all, according to the Volvo Portugal report, it surpassed the World and European average in the purchase of electrified vehicles.
According to them, the Recharge range represents 71% of all vehicles sold in the national territory with the 100% electric offers representing 18%!
