Volvo ditches diesel, but will half its cars be electric by 2024?

2017 Volvo S60 and V60 Polestar Enlarge Photo Volvo says it is going all-in on electric cars in an effort to turn the company into something of a Tesla alternative. To that end, the company has announced that half its cars will be battery electric models by 2024, according to a report in Road & Track earlier this year. It has also dedicated its high-performance Polestar brand to selling all-electric cars.
