Volvo electric cars to come with leather-free interiors

Volvo also stated that by 2025, it aims to have 25% of the materials in its cars to be made up of recycled and bio-based content.

Volvo has announced that it plans to stop using leather and other byproducts derived from the cattle industry in its cars. The company has stated that the C40 Recharge will be the first model to be offered with a completely leather-free interior.

Volvo has stated that by 2030, its product line-up will consist of only electric cars - all of which will come devoid of leather. The company aims to replace leather completely with sustainable materials, which offer the same levels of premium-ness while being environmentally friendly.

One such sustainable material is Nordico, which consists of textiles made from recycled PET bottles, corks recycled from the wine industry and other bio-attributed materials from Sweden and Finland. This material has been created by Volvo and will debut on the next-generation models.
