Volvo’s Farewell to Diesel: Last Car Sent to Museum

In a significant move towards sustainable transportation, Volvo has officially ceased production of diesel vehicles. The announcement comes as part of the automaker’s ambitious plan to transition towards electric mobility, marking the end of an era for diesel-powered cars.

The decision to discontinue diesel production underscores Volvo’s dedication to reducing carbon emissions and embracing cleaner energy solutions. With electric vehicles (EVs) gaining traction globally, Volvo aims to lead the charge towards a greener future.

Håkan Samuelsson, former CEO of Volvo, initiated the transition to electrified powertrains in 2017, recognizing the urgent need for sustainable mobility solutions. Under his leadership, Volvo made significant strides in developing EV technology and infrastructure.

The shift away from diesel aligns with Volvo’s long-term vision of becoming carbon-neutral by 2040. By focusing on EVs, the company seeks to minimize its environmental footprint and contribute to a more sustainable transportation ecosystem.


Volvo’s last diesel car, the XC90, showcases the brand’s innovation and sustainability. With a powerful turbocharged 2-liter 4-cylinder diesel engine, it marks the end of Volvo’s diesel era. After production, it will be sent to the Volvo museum.

As Volvo’s final diesel vehicle heads to the museum, it reminds us of how technology evolves quickly and industries must adapt. Diesel fueled Volvo’s past, but electric power will define its future, leading to more sustainable mobility and innovation.
