Today’s Solutions: December 07, 2022

With major automakers such as General Motors, Volkswagen, Jaguar, and Volvo pledging to shift their cars to all-electric over the next decade, there should be little doubt left that the electric vehicle revolution is in full swing. Now, Fiat is looking to make the same pledge, with the Italian manufacturer recently committing to becoming an electric-only brand by 2030.

As part of its electric plan, the automaker will seek to improve access to electric cars, lower barriers to EV adaptation, including improving the charging infrastructure, and contribute towards reducing air pollution.

“It is our duty to bring to market electric cars that cost no more than those with an internal combustion engine, as soon as we can, in line with the falling costs of batteries,” said Fiat’s CEO, Olivier François. “We are exploring the territory of sustainable mobility for all: this is our greatest project. Between 2025 and 2030, our product line-up will gradually become electric-only.”

Essentially, come 2025, Fiat will start to increasingly convert its diesel-powered vehicles to electric, and gradually shift its entire lineup to become electric-only by 2030.
