Fiat was the latest automaker to announce that it will switch to fully electric vehicles by 2030. The company plans to phase out internal combustion engine vehicles by 2025.
Fiat CEO Olivier François said: “It is our duty to bring electric cars to market as soon as possible, which are no more expensive than internal combustion engine vehicles, in line with falling battery costs.” says. François says they have discovered the field of sustainable mobility for all and this is their biggest project. It is also shared that between 2025 and 2030 the product range will gradually become electric only, which will be a radical change for Fiat.
The automaker has launched an electric version of the Fiat 500 city car in some regions. For now, the standard Fiat 500 will also remain available. The company wants to help improve access to electric vehicles, charging infrastructure and air quality, as Autocar states.
A few car brands are planning to go all-electric in the next 10 years, or at least there are rumors that they will. Mini, Volvo and Ford (at least in Europe) want to transition by 2030. Honda has set 2040 as the timeline to make the switch.
