In an effort to be more sustainable and meet its goal of becoming carbon-neutral by 2040, Swedish car manufacturer Volvo announced the brand will go leather0free and fully electric by the end of the decade. Last year, Volvo unveiled its first electric car which was dubbed the 'Polestar 2,' and this week the brand launched its second model, the C40 Recharge. Notably, the new model will be sold exclusively online.
Volvo is a brand committed to environmental sustainability and according to the brand, by 2025, it is aiming for 25% of all material within its car to be recycled and bio-based. According to Volvo, "Instead of leather, we will use several different material alternatives, including sustainable vinyls and textiles."
