LONDON: Newly-created carmaker Stellantis will offer electric versions of almost all of its European line-up by 2025, it said on Thursday, as the auto industry faces regulatory pushes in Europe and China to accelerate the shift to zero-emission cars.

Formed in January by the merger of France’s PSA and Italian-American group Fiat Chrysler, Stellantis is the world’s fourth largest carmaker with 14 brands including Opel, Jeep, Ram and Maserati, and like its peers faces an investor community keen for a road map to an electric line-up to rival Tesla .

Speaking during Stellantis’ first annual shareholders meeting, Chief Executive Carlos Tavares said that in 2021 the carmaker expects sales of electrified vehicles – both plug-in hybrids and fully electric models – to more than triple to over 400,000 units in 2021.

By 2025, electrified vehicles should make up 38% of European sales, a huge jump from the 14% of sales it expects in 2021.

Tavares said by 2030 electric models should make up 70% of European sales and 35% of U.S. sales.

He said Stellantis will use four electric platforms for passenger vehicles across its 14-brand empire – small, medium and large sizes for cars, and “frame” for high-margin SUVs and pickup trucks.

Sweden’s Volvo said this month its line-up would be fully electric by 2030, and Ford Motor Co said in February its line-up in Europe would be too.

BMW has said at least 50% of its car sales should be fully-electric models by 2030.

Sales of electric and plug-in hybrid cars in the European Union almost trebled to over 1 million vehicles last year, accounting for more than 10% of overall sales.

The bloc is banking on its European Battery Alliance, launched in 2017, to reduce its reliance on batteries and other technologies imported from the US or Asia while pursuing its Green Deal goal of carbon neutrality by 2050.
