The cars that were once viewed as extremely safe yet rather boring family haulers, are now making a firm stand on the market of premium vehicles. In 2021 both Volvo and its performance subbrand Polestar, are readjusting the goals on the horizon and pledge to make sure that every car they sell by 2030 is fully electric. This initiative has already yielded the first fruit, since every single model of the brand could be bought with some sort of electrification.
