Enabling of a two way charging in its EVs is one of the important objectives of Volvo.
Volvo is setting an aspirational agenda to become an all-electric luxury automotive brand by 2030. The all new concept charging SUV will enable Swedish car manufacturers to drive more, faster, bi-directional charge and quickly evolving technology for their future generation of electric vehicles. The concept recharge seems completely different from the future of Plestar and is certainly not the most magnificent electric car in the Geely Group, but it is one step towards making drivers exactly the type of electric vehicles they claim to be using.
Volvo has introduced its plans for a new generation of smart and rapidly updating electric vehicles, which spend more time driving and less time plugging into the charger, at the Volvo Cars Tech Moment event. By the time of 5 years the firm plans EVs to make up half of their vehicle sales and become an electricity only brand by 2030. Volvo doesn’t just use electricity, it is developing a range of electric cars that are as advantageous and efficient as any ICE. With a Swedish battery expert Northvolt, the firm will pursue more carefully the development of lithium-ion batteries, aiming at achieving 50% energy density gains by the latter part of the decade in support for 621 kilometers of the real world driving. It will also attempt to halve the charge times and add bi-directional charge capacity, so that Volvo can return electricity to the grid during peak times and load during low demand periods.
The advancement of batteries is one of the cornerstones of Volvo’s fully integrated strategic planning. Although Volvo does not indicate the depth of the idea, it promises a point of view that is approximately the same as prevailing SUVs such as the XC90 and the XC40. The famous LiDAR in Volvo’s Big Data Plan is shown to rise above the windshield. For now Volvo has a concept, which seems like the first aspects of its electrification schemes that are due to reveal in 2022.
