It seems as if everyone is pushing an electric car out the door these days. Roberto Baldwin on what will happen by 2020.
At the Frankfurt auto show in Germany, many car companies either finally pledged or reiterated earlier promises to increase the number of electrified cars to their lineups by 2030.
What about 2020.
Judging by the pledges made by automakers ahead of, and during, the Frankfurt auto show, by the end of the 2020s, it’ll be tough to find a car that doesn’t have some serious batteries in it.
Honda wants two thirds of its sales to be electrified in some way by the end of 2030, while Audi, Jaguar, Volvo and Volkswagen will all have a substantial proportion of their vehicles powered by electrons during the next decade.
No timetable other than soon.
