Volvo recently decided to pull support of Polestar-operated racers from the Scandinavian Touring Car Championship and Australian V8 Supercars series, but it may not be done with racing entirely.

The company may instead turn its attention to the Formula E electric-car racing series, Volvo marketing director Alain Visser told Sweden’s Auto Motor & Sport in a recent interview.

As for the FIA’s new all-electric single seater category Formula E, however, Visser admitted Volvo is interested.

Manufacturers have been invited to develop alternate powertrains for season two of the series, and although motorsport.com believes that Volvo is not one of those who are going to join for the 2015/16 season, it is in the mix for future years.
