25th August, 2021.      //   General Interest  // 



At President Joe Biden’s urging, the auto industry pledged to spice up production of electrical vehicles to the purpose that they account for about 1/2 total U.S. sales by 2030, a thought that raises hopes that EVs can shift from niche to normal.

EVs, including Tesla (ticker: TSLA), accounted for two.4% of U.S. cars sold in 2020, up from 0.7% five years ago, per BloombergNEF. The research provider expects that share to extend to 11% in 2025; by 2030, it expects that slightly over a 3rd of vehicles sold within the U.S. are electric.

Several auto makers had already announced bigger EV ambitions even before the White House call.

Here are each major car maker’s stated plans for EVs, including, when available, investment amounts and therefore the range of models they hope to waken market.

This information was collated from company sites, previous reports, and BloombergNEF projections, and can be updated regularly.

Audi, a brand known for its luxury cars and owned by Germany’s Volkswagen AG (VOW), has promised to own battery-electric vehicles comprise 35% of its sales by 2025. By that point, Audi buyers will select from about 20 EV models.

BMW (BMW), a luxury-car maker from Germany, was among the primary EV innovators. It launched its i3 compact EV eight years ago, then united of the few serious competitors to Tesla’s vehicles.

BMW’s EV pipeline has slowed, but the auto maker has promised that 25% of its European sales are all-electric and hybrid vehicles this year, which all sales of its Mini brand are going to be battery electric by 2030. It expects to launch quite 10 battery EV models within the next number of years.
