According to Volvo CEO Hakan Samuelsson, the Swedish carmaker is aiming to become an electric-only brand within the next 10 years.

Volvo has already stated that one goal is to have half its global sales be fully-electric models by 2025, yet it has still to set a deadline for when it will stop manufacturing new vehicles powered by internal combustion engines, reports Autonews Europe.

“The way forward would be to have clear rules on when we need to exit the combustion engine,” he told the Financial Times Future of the Car Summit. “I would be surprised if we wouldn’t deliver only electric cars from 2030.”

Even though Volvo wants for 20% of its global sales for this year to be electrified, the majority of them will still only be mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid models.

“The way forward would be to have clear rules on when we need to exit the combustion engine,” he added. “Once you have realized that the petrol and diesel engine are really not part of the future, it’s rather easy to see you have to move fast into the new world.”

Samuelsson said that his company already came to this realization and is not anxious about countries such as the UK setting end dates for the sale of internal combustion engine models.

“Volvo will be very careful and deliver only electric engines before anybody has legal requirements for this.”

He also stated that by having “clear rules” is how we ended up with cars that feature seat belts, airbags and antilock brakes, systems that were implemented swiftly and not because of “incentives or credit points.”

One of Formula 1’s most promising young talents, George Russell (currently racing for Williams), will get the chance to drive the best car on the grid when he fills in for Lewis Hamilton at this weekend’s Sakhir GP. Hamilton was diagnosed with COVID-19 yesterday and has gone into isolation.

In order to compete for Mercedes, Russell had to be released by Williams temporarily.

He will become just the fifth driver to race for Mercedes-AMG Petronas since 2010, and the third Briton to represent the team after Sir Stirling Moss and of course, Hamilton himself.

Russell has been a member of the Mercedes Junior Program since 2017 and has already tested for the championship-winning outfit on several occasions in the past, so he probably knows what to expect, at least to some extent.

“First and foremost, I wish to thank our loyal partners at Williams for their collaboration and open-mindedness in making it possible for George to race for Mercedes this weekend. The conversations with the team at Williams were positive and pragmatic, and those were the key factors in reaching an agreement,” said team principal and CEO, Toto Wolff.

“It will not be a straightforward task for George to make the transition from the Williams to the W11, but he is race-ready and has detailed understanding of the 2020 tyres and how they perform on this generation of cars. George has shown impressive form this year with Williams, playing an instrumental role in their climb up the grid, and I am optimistic that he will deliver a strong performance alongside Valtteri, who will be a demanding reference for him.”

As for us fans, it will be fascinating to see what someone else can do inside Hamilton’s Mercedes, especially someone who has already performed very well this year, despite the limitations of his current car.
