Yikes! Stellantis wants to be EV-only in Europe by 2030
Stellantis – the motoring superpower made up of 14 different carmakers – has announced that EVs will account for 100 per cent of its European sales by 2030, with 50 per cent of US-based sales being all-electric by the same deadline.
The commitment was made by boss Carlos Tavares in Stellantis’ latest BIG PLAN, which it seems to be referring to as ‘Dare Forward 2030’. Interesting.
The group confirmed that Opel would be making nothing but EVs by 2028, and that Abarth would be all-electric by 2024. Presumably this latest announcement doesn’t supersede those. Stellantis now says it’ll have “more than 75 BEVs” on sale by 2030 and that it’ll be selling five million of the things each year by then too.
At the Dare Forward 2030 press conference in Amsterdam, Tavares also announced plans for the company to become net zero by 2038, with a 50 per cent reduction in its environmental impact by the end of this decade.
