Automakers Who Have Confirmed They’re Going All-Electric
Every major automaker from around the globe has made plans phase out some of their ICE vehicles, instead offering electric versions in their place. This includes brands like Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and Porsche, as well as several commuter brands like Toyota, Chevy, and Ford. Here at Prestige Imports in North Miami Beach, FL, we’re big proponents of EVs. One of the brands we carry is the all-electric Karma Automotive.
But which automakers are ditching ICEs completely and going all electric? Let’s take a look.
Bentley will be an all-electric brand by 2030, according their in-house Beyond100 Strategy. Additionally, they will eliminate non-hybrid models from their lineup by 2026, only offering hybrids and plug-in hybrids before those too are replaced by EVs.
The 2023 Cadillac LYRIQ EV is the first electric vehicle for Cadillac, and it is “heralding an all-electric future” for the company. Cadillac plans to be completely EV by 2030, with the Escalade being offered as a hybrid until 2029.
Jaguar plans to reinvent themselves as an all-electric brand by 2025, the fastest timeline on this list. They are also working toward net zero carbon emissions, with some hydrogen fuel-cell technology in the works.
Lotus is about to introduce their last ever ICE vehicle, the Emira. After that, Lotus plans to go all-electric by 2030. They recently unveiled the new electric infrastructure they’ll be using. Unlike other companies on this list, they will be switching straight from ICEs to EVs; there will be no hybrids to help transition.
