Production to Begin Soon at Volvo Plant in Ghent, Belgium

Volvo is proud to announce that it will begin production on its second electric vehicle (EV) in 2021. This announcement comes after the Swedish automaker made a commitment to push for the future of electrified vehicles in Mason, MI, and beyond. The latest Volvo EV will be produced alongside the Volvo XC40 Recharge, the brand’s flagship all-electric SUV. But drivers in Lansing, MI, can expect the second-generation EV model to bring even more power and capability to the table.

Volvo Ready to Triple its EV Production Capacity

The future of electric vehicles has long been a question mark in the auto-industry until Volvo stepped in and promised to spearhead the project. With its second EV set to begin production in 2021, Volvo continues to push the boundaries of electrification with a statement alluding to just how far they are willing to go to make a difference. At their production facility in Ghent, Belgium, the illustrious automaker plans to triple their EV production capacity by 2022.

Volvo’s newest factory, located just outside of Charleston, SC, is also expected to add battery-powered vehicle construction around the same time the company triples down to expand their global EV efforts. By 2025, Volvo’s goal is to have about half of its global sales be from EV models, including the XC40 Recharge and the new second-generation model.

Gearing Up for An Electric Year

It’s no surprise that 2020 presented Volvo with a lot of unforeseen challenges, as it did for the rest of us in Charlotte, MI. But that doesn’t mean we’re slowing down. Quite the opposite. As Volvo gears up for an electrified future of EV driving and plug-in hybrid capability, the automaker is excited for what the future holds. With the pandemic behind us, Volvo is committed to recharging the industry with a spark of electric power for years to come.
