Stellantis Sets EV Target, Stops Short of Full Electric Fleet
April 19, 2021—Stellantis, maker of Jeep SUVs and Ram pickups, has announced a set of EV and emissions targets, the Detroit Free Press reported.
In a meeting with general shareholders, the company’s CEO Carlos Tavares committed to increase the share of low-emission vehicles the company sells in Europe from 14 percent in 2021 to 70 percent in 2030 and in the United States from four percent in 2021 to 35 percent in 2030. Those increases would be paired with a plan to boost the number of nameplates with low-emission vehicle offerings to 98 percent in Europe by 2025 and 96 percent in the United States by then.
Tavares said the company would triple its low-emission vehicle sales this year, compared with 2020, to more than 400,000 vehicles.
“This is what we’re going to deliver to the market. Please recognize that we are now accelerating this electrification move, and please recognize that we are perfectly on time and ready to deliver on the limited emissions or zero emissions mobility expectations of the markets in which we operate,” Tavares said.
