“It is fully electric, offered online only with a convenient care package and will be available for quick delivery. Getting a new Volvo was never this attractive.”

Volvo is going leather free with claims of “taking an ethical stand for animal welfare in its fully electric cars”.

The Swedish automakers also confirmed that they will use a quarter of the material will “be recycled and bio-based content” in its new cars by 2025.

Volvo’s head of design Robin Page said :”For someone who loves leather but is aware of the negative effects of leather on the environment, this is a good, modern way to capture the properties but is the right material for the future,”

Volvo is planning to use Nordico. It is made up of textiles derived from recycled materials like polyethylene terephthalate. Also, they will use “material from sustainable forests in Sweden and Finland, and corks recycled from the wine industry.”

Volvo also said it would “continue to offer wool blend options from suppliers that are certified to source responsibly.”

“Finding products and materials that support animal welfare will be challenging, but that is no reason to avoid this important issue.”
said Stuart Templar, Volvo Cars’ director of global sustainability.
