Volvo is reportedly planning 6 electric vehicles by 2026
Volvo has set a goal of having an all-electric offering by 2030, and that means the automaker has a busy few years ahead.
With the compact duo XC40 and C40 Recharge, the company already offers two electric vehicles and last November presented the medium-sized SUV EX90 as an electric alternative to the XC90.
Reuters reported Thursday that we will see at least six new Volvo electric vehicles by 2026, citing two people familiar with the plans. The six will include three SUVs, two sedans and a minivan, according to the sources.
The first of the SUVs is the EX90, which will ship in early 2024 as a 2024 model. A sub-compact crossover SUV dubbed the EX30 will be unveiled this summer, while the third SUV is expected to be an electric alternative or maybe a replacement for the XC60.

The two sedans will be in the same segments as the current S60 and S90, according to the sources, and the minivan will be a large model coupled with the 009 from other Geely brand Zeekr. The minivan is aimed at buyers in China and cannot be sold outside of that market.
Reuters reported that other Volvos are also being developed with a greater focus on customer trends in Asia to help boost sales there. This will extend to Volvo, which develops its sedan models in China, where the automaker recently expanded its local research and development center. Electric sedans from Volvo are expected to carry the new ES designation, followed by a number reflecting the positioning.
