To be perfectly transparent, it seems some luxury automakers go out of their way to be confusing in the panoply of models and trims offered East Hartford. Though, this may be considered a "divide and conquer" approach, wherein the deeper you venture, the more complicated the model, options related and, of course, expense.

Yet there has been little to no press around any plans of Volvo becoming an electric car brand, which they've stated is their goal. In mid-2018, when China banned all combustion engine cars, there was a brief moment of the press as Volvo moved production to fully electric vehicles and announced every first model of their new line would be electric.
