Volvo is moving fast into electric space now - we hope that it will bring its known safety and reliability with it.
Volvo XC60 Plug-in Hybrid Concept features three-mode functionality, which is an electric car, a highly economical hybrid and a powerful high-performance car all rolled into one. At the touch of a button, the driver decides how the available power from the combination of the high-performance gasoline engine and the electric motor is to be utilized. In Pure mode the car is powered solely by its electric motor as much as possible. Hybrid mode is the standard setting whenever the car is started. The gasoline engine and electric motor cooperate to provide maximum driving pleasure with minimum environmental impact. In Power mode, the technology is optimized to create maximum possible power. The gasoline engine with 280 hp is combined with the electric motor with 70 hp.
"We have very interesting documentary about the making of Volvo C30 Electric. We have now the technology to address the Peak Oil and high gas prices, dramatically reduce carbon emissions and make our cities safe to breath again.
"It will be very difficult to break our addiction to Oil - Hangover after the Oil Party will be very strong. Nobody will give it up easily - Energy Transition will be painful, but it is the only way out. We are already late, but we still have the chance. At stake are billions of dollars and millions of lives. Now with the advance in Lithium batteries we have the economically viable technology to survive in the post carbon world. With everything happening so fast with technology in the Electric space we think that we are at The Tipping Point for the Electric Cars now to become the serious mass market game changer in the auto market.
Why Electric Cars? Why is it called the Internet with another Zero? What is Peak Oil and Why there is NO more cheap oil out there left? What do we need to make it happen? Where is the generation investment opportunity in this Energy Transition? Why is China ahead of the game already?
We will give you a few quotes and links in one place to follow our logic here. It is not the future - it is happening now and we all can vote with one electric car and charger at a time, spread the word and join the movement. Dump the pump."
