Your next new Volvo could very well be electric, thanks to the company's determination to get big ol' batteries into just about everything it produces.

Volvo announced Wednesday that it will offer electrified versions of all its new cars starting in 2019.

At that point, Volvo will no longer offer new vehicles without some degree of electrification, although the gas engine will still play a part in this new strategy.

"This is about the customer," said Håkan Samuelsson, CEO of Volvo Cars, in a statement.

"People increasingly demand electrified cars and we want to respond to our customers' current and future needs.

You can now pick and choose whichever electrified Volvo you wish."

Initial results have been more than encouraging: the large XC90 SUV was Business Insider's Car of the Year for 2015.

But with the mid-size, five-passenger XC60, Volvo really has something to prove.

Competition in the heart of the SUV segment for these versatile neo-wagons, favored chariots of affluent suburbanites, is intense.

We borrowed a 2018 XC60 T8 E-AWD Inscription — nicely optioned, stickering at $71,590 — and spent a few days driving around the New Jersey suburbs, and we also made a weekend jaunt into New York City.

Back in the days when the first SUVs were developed (and they weren't yet called that), they were boxy, quasi-military vehicles intended to absorb offroad punishment.

The XC60 isn't an aggressive-looking machine, but it is smooth and sleek, with a nice beltline that forms a wedge from front to back and culminates in an angular rear side window.

Electric powertrains aren't intended to shake up passenger cars alone.

They can also provide benefits to public transportation, and Volvo's latest bus is proof of that.

Volvo Buses debuted the 7900 Electric in late October.

While the public-transport arm of Volvo is no stranger to electric buses, its latest model adds a whole lot of range to better serve customers who may not be located close to a city center.

Volvo Buses claims the new battery packs will offer up to 200 km (124 miles) of range on a single charge, depending on the city's layout.

Charging takes places via the roof-mounted OppCharge system or, for the first time, by cable using the CCS standard.

On Wednesday, Volvo Cars announced that all new models introduced from 2019 will feature some form of electric propulsion.

The news follows an announcement in May that diesel engines have no future with the brand, in part because of ever-stricter EU carbon emissions targets, but also because of the growing concern over the health effects of diesel exhaust, which is loaded with particulates and nitrogen oxides.

When it comes to socially responsible car companies, Volvo appears to be leading the pack.

The Swedish automaker, which built its reputation on safety, has already committed to a goal of reducing the number of deaths or serious injuries in a new Volvo to zero by the year 2020.

And it looks like that concern extends beyond the wellbeing of its customers to the rest of us as well.

Details about the new EVs are scarce at present, but the company says that three of them will be badged as Volvos, and the other two will be high-performance EVs badged as Polestars.

Volvo's got a long history building cars with long roofs, and on the eve of its next one, it's thrown out a mix of a teaser and a history lesson.

Volvo put out a 90-second teaser for its upcoming 2019 V60 wagon.

The video, entitled "Designed for Generations," gives us a quick history of Volvo's wagons, starting all the way back at the P1800ES, introduced as a two-door station wagon variant of the P1800 in 1972.

The video ends with a quick glance at the new V60's interior.

We'll have to wait until Volvo's reveal on Feb. 21 before we learn anything else, but we can make some general assumptions about what to expect.

Given how close the XC60 is to its bigger brother, the XC90, it could be assumed that the new V60 will look very similar to the current V90, albeit with some adjustments for proportion, since it's a smaller car overall.

Polestar, Volvo's standalone performance arm, may have revealed its first car back in October, but it hasn't been shown off to the public yet.

Polestar will have its own booth at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, marking the fledgling brand's first major auto show appearance.

It only has one car for now, so that's what'll be on display -- the Polestar 1, which looks like a coupe version of the Volvo S90 but packs one hell of an electrified punch.

Relying on a plug-in hybrid setup that sees electric motors powering the rear wheels while a gas engine powers the wheels up front, the Polestar 1's output is a whopping 600 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque.

A 34-kWh battery pack permits a claimed 93 miles of EV-only range, which is the longest PHEV range in the industry, outperforming some older pure EVs in the process.

This is only the start.

Yes, the 60- and 90-series cars are all starting to look like Russian dolls -- the same basic formula in slightly different sizes -- but that's hardly reason for complaint.

New Volvos are some of the best-looking cars on the road today, and the V60's design is yet another exercise in tasteful elegance.

The "Thor's Hammer" LED lights proudly flank the grille, with large wheels at all four corners and L-shaped tail lamps that follow the shape of the D-pillar and then slice inward toward the center of the hatch.

Good luck spotting any big differences inside the cabin.

The V60's interior is visually identical to that of the XC60 crossover and 90-series cars, with a vertically oriented touchscreen in the center console, only a few buttons and knobs below it, a digital gauge cluster and the same lovely wood and aluminum inlays on the dash and doors.

The Sensus infotainment system carries over unchanged, is fully compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and has a built-in 4G wifi hotspot.

Back in 2016, Volvo debuted a pair of small concepts with big promise.

Now, it appears that we'll get at least one of those concepts as a production EV.

Volvo's first EV will arrive in 2019 in the form of a compact hatchback, Autocar reports.

The vehicle will be based on the 40.2 hatchback concept that debuted in 2016, which many believed was a preview of Volvo's future vehicles.

Thus far, that's come true -- the 40.1 SUV concept is very, very close to the 2019 XC40 SUV that's on its way to dealerships right now.

Volvo did not immediately return a request for comment, but it's rare for an automaker to spill the beans in responding to such a request.

Volvo has demonstrated yet another potential use case for autonomous transport after its Volvo Buses subsidiary showcased a self-driving bus that’s capable of transporting itself around depots.

The Swedish automotive giant partnered with public transport company Keolis to configure a 12 metre electric bus that can traverse between parking bays and work stations, ensuring that it’s cleaned, serviced, and fully charged before moving back to the correct bay.

As with many new demonstrations of autonomous technology, Volvo stresses that this is less about replacing humans than it is about improving efficiency and safety.

“This marks a very important step in our autonomous journey, as we now have successfully shown the commercial benefits an autonomous solution can deliver in a bus depot,” noted Volvo Buses president Håkan Agnevall.

“Autonomous buses in depots bring new benefits, such as more efficient traffic flows, higher productivity, [fewer] damages, and improved safety.”

As more vehicle manufacturers commit to an electric future to cut emissions — including Volvo itself, which now only makes hybrid or electric cars — the underlying charging infrastructure is evolving to make the process as smooth as possible.

Volvo might have won our Disruptor of the Year award at this year's Detroit Auto Show, but it earned an equally impressive achievement on the other side of the Atlantic at the same time.

Volvo announced this week that its engine factory in Skövde, Sweden, has achieved climate-neutral status as of Jan. 1.

It's Volvo's first plant in its global network to hit this mark, and it's only one of a small handful of climate-neutral automotive facilities in Europe.

Reaching climate-neutral status means that a specific business has zero climate-related impact on the surrounding environment, and it usually relates to carbon dioxide emissions.

In Volvo's case, the company hit this target by moving to a renewable heating source that is only generated through biomass, recycled bio-fuels and waste incineration.

Skövde's electricity already comes from renewable sources, a move that's shared by all of Volvo's other European plants.
