Swedish luxury auto giant Volvo has announced that it will electrify its entire product portfolio in the US in 2023. This strategy includes mild-hybrids, plug-in hybrids and fully electric models. The automaker has said that the new strategy will result in changes to the XC40, XC90, and C60 Cross Country getting mild-hybrid powertrains. This move comes as a step forward toward the auto manufacturer's promise of being a fully electric vehicle brand by the end of this decade. The planned electrified product portfolio will offer the Volvo customers a range of electrified options, available to select as per their preference.

Inside the cabin, the updated Volvo XC40 gets premium leather-free upholstery options, which can be paired with new exterior colour and wheel choices. The automaker will also roll out its built-in Google assistant in the XC40 and across the entire 2023 Volvo range, claimed the company. This will allow Volvo to offer over-the-air (OTA) updates to its cars. Volvo also said that the S60, V60, and V60 Cross Country come with a new front grille design and updated rear bumper inserts.
