Volvo’s breakthrough 625-mile EV battery could cure your range anxiety


The EV market is heating up pretty fast, and Volvo has just announced some grand plans on how it hopes to make a name for itself. That’s why Volvo just announced its intentions to become all-electric by 2030, and what it’s doing to make that happen.

Part of that involves the ‘Concept Recharge’ car, which is a model of what Volvo’s electric vehicles will look like. But the bigger news is the company’s new batteries, which it claims can offer up to 625 miles on a single charge.

The Concept Recharge itself is quite a fancy looking car, opting for an SUV-like design that maximizes room and comfort on the inside. It also packs in a vertical infotainment tablet, reverse hinge rear doors and multiple arm rests that look like they have enough room for all occupants of the car to stick their limbs out without elbowing each other in the process.

Of course, this is only a concept and the Concept Recharge won’t be driving on a road near you. However Volvo CTO Henrik Green told The Verge that a “version” of the car could be on the road within three years. Apparently, the plan is to sell 600,000 electric cars by mid-decade.

Volvo’s also planning on bringing its software operations in house, with the development of a new VolvoCars.OS. The company says this will be an “umbrella system” for other software, and will help speed up the development of updates and software patches.
