Volvo, the electric car

We have absolutely nothing to report other than the following

Dear Lena,

Of course, your answer is not what I want to hear but do you know they've converted a BMW Mini to electric? It has a range of 300 miles before plugin overnight and does 0 to 60 in under six seconds. Yes, you're right. The drive train is different. Also no gears, no automatic, just brake and go.

I like Volvo because they gave the 3 point seat belt to the car industry. I also like the interiors, the ride, handling and safety. And with the XC70 the styling is as provocative as the Isuzu Vehicross, only better because it's in a station wagon format.

I'm sure you have things in the works.

I'm speaking of an XC70 shape of the future powered by nothing at all, meaning, capturing the power of gravity.

My thought was, if BMW can make an electric Mini, Volvo can do the same with an XC70. And I'm sure you can. Safety for Volvo must transcend just the passengers and consider the planet as a whole. Electric.

I envisage the entire automotive industry shifting to electric, and beyond.

Thank you again for your thoughtful though not complete reply.

You guys are Volvo. I expect more a level of best.

More people should learn about this. EV technology is really becoming impressive, like the new Zap that does 0-60mph in 4.8 seconds. Electric is looking more and more like the way to go.
