Many manufacturers have made their electric roadmap public and have set dates to stop selling cars with a combustion engine in the Old Continent.
Smart has been one of the pioneers and it was two years ago when it decided to eliminate the combustion versions of its only two models, the for two and four, to sell them exclusively as electric.
Fiat’s high-performance brand will become 100% electric in 2024. Although, at the moment, it does not have any emission-free vehicles in its catalog.
From 2025 Jaguar will only have electric models. At the moment it only offers the I-Pace with this type of mechanics.
The German has announced that from 2026 all its innovations will be electric, but for a few years, it will continue to maintain the thermal and hybrid versions of the models it was already marketing. Currently, its electric catalog includes the e-Tron, the e-Tron GT, and the Q4 e-Tron.
From 2024 all its cars will have electrified versions and in 2028 they will all be electric. It now offers zero-emission versions of the Corsa and Mokka.
The luxury brand is immersed in the development of its first electric vehicle, which will see the light of day in 2025, and just five years later its range will be made up exclusively of zero-emission models.
The sports brand will sell only electric cars at the end of the decade, a path that it is already paving with the Cupra Born, to which the production version of the UrbanRebel and, in 2024, the Tavascan will soon be added.
Fiat has begun its transformation process with the electric 500, which it already markets, but throughout the decade it will replace models in its range with zero-emission alternatives until it is the only type of engine available in 2030.
At the end of the decade, all its passenger cars in Europe will be electric and four years earlier, in 2026, all its cars will have electrification of some kind. Today they have the Mustang Mach-e as the only electric one.
It is not guaranteed, since it will depend on market conditions as the brand has declared, but Mercedes’ idea is to sell exclusively electric cars from 2030. In addition, in 2025 it will stop developing combustion engines. Its electrical offer is quite wide: EQA, EQC, EQS, and EQB; to which the EQE will soon be added.
The British company will also carry out a plan in two steps: in 2025 it will stop launching thermal cars and in 2030 its entire range will be electric. Currently, it only has a zero-emission model.
It has been the last brand to announce a date for its jump to zero emissions exclusively: 2030. At the moment it only markets the Renault Zoe and this same year the renewed electric Mégane goes on sale.
The end of the decade is the date chosen for the definitive transition, which the Swedish brand has already begun with the electric version of the XC40, as well as with the arrival of the C40, its first specifically battery-powered model.
Although it already has electric ones in its range (Kona and Ioniq 5), the Korean brand is the one that has announced a more progressive plan: until 2035 it will offer combustion engines in Europe, and in other markets they will remain available for another five years.
With the announcement of the Toyota Group at the end of last year, it was revealed that its luxury brand, Lexus, will be an exclusive electric manufacturer from 2035. It already sells the UX and the RZ has just been announced.
