Volvo’s Vision, VW SUV’s, & Evoque Milestone
May 9, 2017
It looks like Volvo is just as concerned about the environment as they are about your safety. In addition to the company’s Vision 2020, which looks to prevent any death or serious injury in a Volvo by the year 2020; they are also “making sustainable business an integral part of its corporate strategy” by getting up to a million electrified Volvos on the road by 2025. That’s according to remarks made by the company’s President and Chief Executive Håkan Samuelsson at a recent gathering of United Nations representatives.
Like most manufacturers, SUVs are “a key element in the product strategy” for Volkswagen. VW says seven new ones will be launched around the world by the end of next year, on their way to 19 SUV models globally. The first of which, the Atlas, goes on sale this month.
Land Rover is celebrating the Range Rover Evoque’s 6th anniversary, by building an Evoque Landmark Special Edition, and offering a special color: Moraine Blue, with inspiration drawn from the lakes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
