Volvo CEO says both plug-ins and fossil-fuel-powered cars can reduce emissions

Nice article on Volvo, not 'choosing sides' for the electric vehicle, or the hybrid vehicle. The main goal is to reduce CO2 and not focus on a technology (yet). 

While I think the electric vehicle has a bigger potential yet to come and unleashed, hybrids will offer a fair share of people what they are looking for in the next few years probably.

[The technology used] depends very much on the CO2 standards, that’s the guiding line, more or less… We should not forget that the traditional internal combustion engine can significantly be improved and the benefits out of this can be made with less investment and complexity. We are [in] a long transition period from fossil fuels towards alternative powertrains and we need to understand that we have to be careful to not invest into the wrong direction.
