Endothermic announcement - The manufacturers have already decided: the watershed year will be 2030

The green light of the European Parliament to the ban on endothermic it has sparked controversy and controversy, especially among politicians and some of the highest representatives of trade associations. Many, while sharing in principle the intentions of decarbonisation and combating climate change, have criticized the too short deadlines imposed by the decision to set a farewell to traditional technologies for 2035. In reality, there are not a few car manufacturers that, in a logic of multi-year planning of industrial investments, have anticipated, even by several years, the Brussels proposal. Some, for example, have already set a stop to the sale of internal combustion engines in two years, anticipating the indications of the package by over 10 “Fit for 55”. Let’s see, then, what the situation is, recalling the choices of the individual automotive groups and their brands.

Volkswagen Group. Within the German manufacturer, there are several defined roads. The Volkswagen brand has set a target of a 70% battery-powered sales mix for 2030 and a stop to internal combustion engines for European markets by 2035. Audi will only be launching electric cars on the market as early as 2026, but will continue to offer traditional engines until 2032. Bentley’s farewell has been set for 2030, while Skoda aims for an electric mix between 50% and 70%. At the moment, no precise targets have been provided for Seat. Porsche, on the other hand, expects electric power to weigh 80% on total volumes by the end of the decade. Finally, Lamborghini intends to offer only hybrid engines from 2025.

Stellantis. The group led by Carlos Tavares has given a strong acceleration to the electrification strategies: in 2030, the European range of all its brands will be exclusively electric. Each brand has set a specific year to offer the market only battery-powered models: 2027 for Alfa Romeo, 2024 for DS, Lancia and Abarth, 2027 for Fiat, 2028 for Opel and Peugeot, 2030 for the Maserati. Everyone else, including Citroën or Jeep, will adapt to the group goal.

Renault and the other Westerners. In the Renault group, the brand of the Lozenge will become 100% electric in 2030while Alpine will already be in 2024. The Dacia will undergo full electrification only in 2035. Ford has already revealed its intention to offer only electric in Europe by the end of the decadeas well as the Volvo. Mercedes has decided to turn to electric for 2030while BMW said it was ready to comply with any tender as early as 2030 and chose a battery-only future for the Mini from 2025 and for Rolls-Royce from 2030. Within the Jaguard Land Rover group, the The Jaguar brand will only offer electric from 2025, while the off-road brand is aiming for an electric mix of at least 60% by 2030.

Asians. While General Motors plans to return to Europe with battery-powered cars only, the Japanese have very different strategies. Toyota aims to sell only vehicles to zero emissions from 2035 and Lexus from 2030, while Nissan and Mitsubishi have not yet provided precise indications, but they will almost certainly follow the path of Renault, by virtue of the new operating model of the Franco-Japanese Alliance which provides for the responsibility of the European market entrusted to the lozenge. Honda will only offer electric from 2025, while Subaru and Suzuki have not yet provided guidance. Finally, the Hyundai / Kia group has suggested a farewell to endothermic engines for 2035.
