The Volvo Car Group has just announced that starting from 2019 all of their new cars will be fully electric, or hybrid.

The Swedish car-maker has decided that none of their new models that will be launched from 2019 will be powered purely by the internal combustion engine, making the company the first major automaker to announce a date for complete end to combustion-engine-only cars. Obviously, we are talking about major traditional automakers, considering Tesla has been on battery from the beginning.

Hakan Samuelsson from Volvo Cars said that "This announcement marks the end of the solely combustion engine-powered car."

The company plans to launch five new models between 2019 and 2021.
