Counting Down the Electric Promises We’ve Gotten From Automakers for Upcoming Years

The perky Nissan Leaf hit auto retailers around the US and Japan back in December 2010, and the EV craze has only skyrocketed since then. What followed was a decade of auto-making giants like Tesla, Audi, BMW, and Ford jumping on the EV bandwagon and creating plug-ins of their own. Now, we even have a self-charging hybrid in the form of the Toyota Prius and Kia Niro being commonplace.

While no automakers, except for Tesla, have devoted the entirety of their performance to producing electric vehicles, the need for environmental sustainability and changing perceptions are largely shoving auto-manufacturers into the right direction. However, only time will tell if the promises are just clever ruses to attract investors or these companies truly have a devotion to playing their part in the betterment of the world.

One thing to bear in mind is that when talking about electric cars, auto-makers refer to EVs, hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and sometimes even hydrogen fuel cell variants. Additionally, if a specific car has both electrified and non-electrified variants, they are counted separately while considering electrification goals.
