Henrik Green's statement "Or in plain English - the cars on the architecture formerly known as SPA2 will be pure electric only" doesn't let much interpretation left. While the XC90 III will be produced in the US, they could remain producing the XC90 II in Sweden. However, who wants to buy an 'old' car, with 'old' tech?I think that either Henrik Green's comments are a little out of context and he didn't mean what they seem to say ie SPA-2 is EV only and no more ICE for any vehicle launched after 2022
I believe Volvo is taking a very brave step and simply is ahead of the other 'traditional' oem's. Today we see such step as 'impossible', tomorrow they will be praised for their vision.
In 2022 no one is offering a large EV SUV - except Model X - yet and Volvo is suddenly offering two!
