TRIPLE THE AMOUNT OF ELECTRIC CAR MODELS AVAILABLE BY 2021!
The number of electric car models available to consumers is predicted to triple by 2021.
The purchase rates of electric cars have been at a standstill for the past few months due to lack of charging point infrastructures and high price ranges of electric cars.
models of electric cars were available at the end of 2018.
electric models will be available by 2021.
The availability of more affordable electric cars could see an increase in consumers switching from petrol and diesel cars sooner than predicted.
Analysis by the European Federation for Transport and Environment (T&E), based on data by research firm IHS Markit, suggests that car manufacturers are now ready to embrace car electrification.
In 2021, carmakers are forecast to bring 92 fully electric models and 118 plug-in hybrid models to market.
If they stick to these plans, 22% of vehicles produced could have a plug by 2025, which would enable manufacturers to easily meet the EU’s car CO2 emissions target of 95g/km by 2025.
“Thanks to the EU car CO2 standards, Europe is about to see a wave of new, longer range, and more affordable electric cars hit the market,” said Lucien Mathieu, a transport and e-mobility analyst at T&E.
