Report: Volvo bets on hybrids and autonomous driving for its future

Volvo is doing some big things right now, clearly exemplified by the launch of the new XC90 later this year.

That’s not all however as Volvo continues to seek new innovations, fulfilling their reputation for safety and technology.
