Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz have all spotted the risk Tesla and other EV-based manufacturers have on the dominance in the sector and will all end 2021 with upwards of four models.
But according to motor dealer Peter Vardy, it’s Vauxhall and Volkswagen that are currently the most eager for dominance in the EV market in 2021. Volkswagen is set to rival Tesla with 6 EV models available by the end of 2021, but Vauxhall will take the crown offering the most EV models in its respective range. Vauxhall will boast 8 EV models by the end of 2021, 2 more than Tesla.
The 10 Manufacturers With The Biggest EV Ranges By 2025
Hyundai plan to take the lead when it comes to creating a full range of cars fit for the EV transition. The Korean automaker will add 20 models to its range, totalling to an offering of 23 all-electric cars to customers by 2025. Citroen will also be making a considerable jump in their EV offering, with 1 EV release in 2022, followed by 16 more before the end of 2025.
Despite Vauxhall taking the lead in their EV offering in 2021, they lag behind as we approach the 2030 deadline. Despite adding just 1 more EV to their range, they still plan to offer more choice of models than Tesla.
Other manufacturers that are predicted to make the biggest strides in the EV market are KIA and Toyota. KIA will produce 11 fully electric models by 2025, promising to hit a company target of one million eco-friendly sales by 2026. Toyota, on the other hand, are set to go one step further and release 15 brand-new electric vehicles by 2025 as part of 70 new eco-friendly models by 2025.
