Volvo CEO says hybrids will supplant diesels, even in Europe

volvol 40.1 concept Tougher emissions standards will lead to the replacement of diesels by gasoline-electric hybrids over the next decade or so, Samuelsson told Car and Driver in a recent interview. Hybrids offer lower emissions than diesels, but Samuelsson believes they will soon cost less as well. He said that in a few years there will be a "crossover," at which point costs for hybrid powertrains will steadily decrease, while the cost of diesel powertrains will steadily increase.
