Despite a revealing sketch, Volvo shoots down rumors about a possible compact electric car
Volvo has kept mum on a possible future electric car despite the fact that a sketch of the said vehicle was shown at a recent event hosted by EnerDel, a lithium-ion battery manufacturer that’s scheduled to supply Volvo with the electric vehicle platform for the Swedish brand’s new electric Volvo C30.
According to a Volvo spokesperson, the sketch, which was admittedly made by one of their in-house designers, was made as an illustrated example of electric cars in general and not as a specific Volvo model.
The sketch, which features a futuristic-looking hatchback, came with a caption saying “a future Volvo electric car?” eventually leading to rampant speculation that Volvo may be looking into producing a compact electric car in the near future.
We don’t know if this is merely a smokescreen set up by Volvo to divert attention regarding their future plans but for now, we’ll take the company’s word for it. For now.
