Volvo Cars will become the first carmaker to implement global traceability of cobalt used in its batteries by applying blockchain technology. The announcement follows the reveal last month of the company’s first fully electric car, the XC40 Recharge.
Traceability of raw materials used in the production of lithium ion batteries, such as cobalt, is one of the main sustainability challenges faced by car makers. Volvo Cars is committed to full traceability, ensuring that customers can drive electrified Volvos knowing the material for the batteries has been sourced responsibly.
Future Volvo customers will need to answer one fundamental question: do you want a new Volvo with a cord or without one? Volvo Cars introduces the XC40 Recharge, the company’s first ever fully electric car and the first model to appear in its brand new Recharge car line concept.
Volvo expands its product range with two more electrified model versions: After launching several diesel engines with a mild hybrid system earlier this year, the first petrol engines are now also being converted to the 48 V vehicle electrical system with mild hybrid technology. This means that the entire Volvo XC90 series is now electrified. At the same time, we are happy to announce that the long-awaited Volvo XC40 T5 Twin Engine (plug-in hybrid) is now ready to be ordered and the fully electric XC40 SUV, Volvo’s first electric car, will be introduced later this month.

Volvo Cars’ XC40 adds another accolade as it receives five stars and top ratings in its 2018 Euro NCAP tests. This means the XC40 joins its larger siblings in the 60 and 90 series as one of the safest cars on the roads.
