Automakers Are Adding Electric Vehicles to Their Lineups. Here’s What’s Coming.

Many automakers have detailed plans to electrify large portions of their fleets over the next decade, with some announcing goals for fully electrified lineups within five years.

hese more affordable models have the potential to sway a significant percentage of the car-buying public toward buying an EV with their efficiency, performance, and lower ownership costs,” says Gabe Shenhar, associate director of Consumer Reports’ Auto Test Center.

The rapid expansion of the EV market will make it difficult for consumers to keep up with all the changes. To help out, here’s our rundown of each manufacturer’s EV production plans for the years ahead.


American Honda Motor Co

The company aims for all of its sales to be zero-emissions electrified vehicles by 2040. The projected ramp-up to this goal is 40 percent of sales by 2030 and 80 percent by 2035. Honda and Sony announced a joint venture to produce battery electric vehicles together; the first EV from this partnership will go on sale in 2025.

American Honda—which sells popular Honda- and Acura-branded cars, SUVs, and pickups to American consumers—has long dabbled in electrified cars.

They range from the Civic hybrid, CRZ, and Insight to more recent, models like the Accord hybrid, CR-V hybrid, and Clarity hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and electric.

The accord also calls for mutual vehicle platform-sharing, which will allow either automaker to use the basic building blocks of GM’s electric vehicle architecture in designing and building its own cars.

The automaker has announced that it will have its first electric vehicles based on the e:Architecture platform by model year 2024, starting with the Prologue launching in early 2024 in North America.


BMW North America

BMW got into the EV game relatively early with its i3, an electric city car that has had limited success in the U.S. since becoming available at dealerships here for the 2014 model year.


Ford Motor Company

New BEVs on the horizon? Yes.

In addition to the Mustang and the e-Transit, Ford has plans to introduce an electric version of its popular F-150 pickup, dubbed F-150 lightning, for sale in spring 2022.

To further its electric ambitions, the automaker has split operations between electric (Model e division) and internal combustion engine (Blue division). These new divisions will work together but operate as distinct businesses starting in 2023. By being singularly focused, Model e is expected to accelerate electric vehicle development.

Ford says it will produce more than 2 million EVs annually by 2026 and projects that EVs will be half of its global sales volume by 2030. The automaker also says that half the global sales of its Lincoln luxury brand will be zero-emissions models by the middle of this decade, and that it will electrify the entire portfolio of vehicles by 2030.


General Motors

New BEVs on the horizon? Yes.

GM—which includes the Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, and GMC brands—has a long history with EVs that began in the late 1990s with the EV1 Then came the chevrolet Bolt plug-in hybrid and the all-electric chevrolet bolt and now the bolt EUV.

GM aims to have 20 EVs available in the U.S. by 2025 as it moves to an all-electric model lineup by 2035. The GMK will be followed by the Lyring SUV and Celestiq sedan; Chevrolet Blazer EV, Equinox EV, Silverado EV; and GMC Sierra EV.


Hyundai Motor Company

New BEVs on the horizon? Yes

The company has committed to all its new vehicles being purely electric starting from 2025 with fuel-cell EVs and battery EVs, with the goal of being a 100 percent zero-emission vehicle brand by 2030, and carbon neutral by 2035. In March 2022 HMC announced that it targets selling 1.87 million battery electric vehicles annually by 2030, worldwide. To achieve this goal, the automaker has pledged to introduce 17 new models by then, with 11 for the Hyundai brand and six for Genesis.


Jaguar Land Rover Limited

New BEVs on the horizon? Yes, but nothing concrete other than the I-Pace, which is already in production.

The storied English brands Jaguar and Land Rover have been a subsidiary of Tata Motors, an Indian multinational firm, since 2008. The Jaguar side of the company has already made waves with its tesla fighting.


Kia Motors America

New BEVs on the horizon? Yes.

Following its corporate partners Hyundai and Genesis, Kia has announced a road map for its electric vehicle plans. The big target is 1.2 million annual battery electric vehicle sales worldwide by 2030. Key to achieving that goal is increasing its EV lineup to 14 electric models by 2027.


Mazda Motor Company

New BEVs on the horizon? Yes.

Mazda joined the electric revolution in fall 2021 when its all-new MX30 went on sale in California. Availability will expand to other states in 2022, with a national rollout to follow based on customer demand. This is an important and essential move for Mazda. But as an electric vehicle latecomer, the initial version appears to be outdated in terms of battery size and range, at just 100 miles, according to the Environmental Protection Agency’s estimate. That will significantly limit its appeal, especially when factoring in range loss over time and colder weather.


Mercedes-Benz USA

New BEVs on the horizon? Yes.

Mercedes-Benz has committed to an aggressive electric-focused plan backed by $47 billion in funding.

The automaker announced that all newly launched vehicle platforms will be electric-only from 2025 onward, and that it’s preparing for new cars to be electric-only by the end of the decade, with the important caveat “where market conditions allow.”

There are three platforms scheduled to launch in 2025: MB.EAm for medium and large cars, AMG.EA for performance cars, and VAN.EA for vans and light commercial vehicles. To power these new models, Mercedes plans to set up eight “gigafactories” with partners to produce batteries.


Mitsubishi Motors North America

New BEVs on the horizon? Not yet.

Mitsubishi has a limited presence in North America. But it has been partly owned by Nissan since 2016 and has access to significant technical resources through the Nissan.

The company announced plans to expand its electrified lineup to 50 percent of its global sales by 2030. Mitsubishi introduced the short-lived i-MiEV, a small electric hatchback, around the same time as the Nissan Leaf, and already has plug-in hybrid models on the market. It’s likely to continue relying on them to some extent to meet its electrification goals.
