Electric cars are the future.

But not all manufacturers are equally well equipped for this.

Here's the status of which brands are turning the corner and when.

Legally, the matter is through: From 2035, almost only electric cars will be registered in the EU - whether with batteries or hydrogen - there may remain a niche for e-fuel vehicles.

Even before this deadline, however, many car manufacturers such as Audi are switching to electric vehicles, and some young brands do not offer any combustion engines at all.

Others are just as fast, others slow down more.

The ADAC has now determined how far the various car brands are in switching to the drive type of the future.

Sports car manufacturers such as Ferrari and Lamborghini, who have stuck with combustion engines for as long as possible, were not included.

That's how far the car manufacturers have come when it comes to electromobility

  • Audi:

    With the e-tron and the e-tron GT, the Volkswagen subsidiary has two electric vehicles in its range, plus many hybrid variants.

    From 2026, Audi will only bring electrified new cars, the production of combustion engines will end in 2033.

    By 2025, more than 20 purely all-electric models such as the Audi A6 e-tron are to be presented.

  • BMW:

    It was only ten years after the (now discontinued) City Stromer i3 that BMW introduced the second BEV (“Battery Electric Vehicle”) with the iX3.

    Today there is also the BMW i4, the new i7, and the iX - currently the only model that was designed exclusively for electric drives.

    Basically, the Munich company is pursuing the strategy of offering cars with different drives: still as hybrids, but only with electricity from batteries or hydrogen.

    By 2023, at least one electric alternative should be available in every vehicle class, and by 2030 they could account for around half of global sales.

    The luxury offshoot Rolls-Royce is to become a purely electric brand.

  • Citroën:

    The Stellantis brand has many electric ë models in its range: ë-C4, ë-Berlingo, Citroën ë-Jumpy and ë-Spacetourer.

    From 2024, the noble offshoot DS will only bring new BEVs onto the market, such as the DS 3 and DS 4


  • Cupra:

    Slowly but surely, Cupra is displacing the Spanish Volkswagen brand Seat, from which it once emerged.

    The compact Born is the sporty technology brother of the VW ID.3 and, like it, is produced in Zwickau.

    The performance SUV Tavascan.

    will be the next Stromer.

    In the long term, Cupra is to be expanded into a purely electric brand and replace Seat, which is why no more e-models will come from there.

  • Fiat:

    So far there is only the electric Fiat 500 and the e-Doblo, for next year the Italians are planning a battery-powered Panda.

    By 2030, the Stellantis brand should become a pure electric provider.

    This should apply to Alfa Romeo as early as 2027 – although the sports brand has so far offered a plug-in hybrid but no BEV.

  • Ford:

    The Americans are currently only offering the Mustang Mach-E, and an electric Puma is expected to complement it in 2023.

    From 2026, every car series in Europe should offer at least one plug-in hybrid or one battery-electric variant.

    2030 should be the end of combustion engines.

  • Honda

    : With its retro design, the small car Honda-e is an original, but so far also the only contribution of the Japanese to e-mobility.

    That won't change until 2024.

    The complete phase-out of combustion engines is planned for 2040.

  • Hyundai:

    With the Ioniq Elektro, the Elektro-Kona, the Ioniq 5 and soon the Ioniq 6, the Koreans have four electric vehicles in their range.

    The technical offshoots of the premium brand Genesis also offer 800-volt technology for particularly fast charging processes.

    It wants to be purely electric in the short term, Hyundai itself is planning that for 2035.

  • Jaguar:

    With the i-Pace, the brand of the Indian Tata Group is one of the electric pioneers.

    From 2025, she only wants to bring new electric cars onto the market.

  • Jeep:

    Stellantis' off-road brand has a particularly large number of combustion engine fans among its customers.

    By 2025, however, it will bring four Stromers onto the market.

    By 2030, all vehicles sold in Europe and 50 percent of those sold in the US will be fully electric.

  • Kia:

    Hyundai's sister brand is consistently converting its model range to hybrid and electric drives, and there are three purely electric cars in the range.

    By 2030, around 50 percent of sales are expected to come from electrified vehicles, more than half of which will be BEVs.

    The portfolio will be expanded by 2027 Stromer.

  • Mazda:

    The MX-30 is the only battery-electric vehicle in the range to date.

    Further purely electric models based on a new electric platform will follow from 2025.

    By 2030, around 40 percent of Mazda models sold in Europe will be purely electric, but combustion engines will continue to play an important role.

  • Mercedes-Benz:

    With EQA, EQB, EQC, EQE, EQS, EQV, the Stuttgart-based company already has six electric vehicles in its range.

    An EQE SUV and an electric Maybach SUV will soon be added.

    In 2030, at least in the EU, there should no longer be any new combustion engines on offer.

  • MG:

    The former British brand, which now belongs to the Chinese SAIC Group, offers the ZS EV and the

    Marvel R Electric and the Kombi MG5 Electric are offering three full-time electric vehicles, with a fourth to follow soon

  • Mini:

    With the Cooper SE, the small car brand from BMW sells a crisp electric speedster, the successor, including the battery convertible, is produced in China.

    By 2030, Mini is set to become a fully electric brand.

  • Nio:

    The Chinese, purely electric brand is just starting in Europe with the luxury sedan ET7, the SUV offshoot EL7 will follow soon - as well as the slightly smaller ET5.

    A special feature is the possibility of having the batteries exchanged automatically at special stations in just a few minutes.

  • Nissan:

    The former e-pioneer is weakening, the City Stromer Leaf is only now being supplemented by the electric crossover Ariya.

    There is also the e-NV200 Evalia minivan.

  • Opel:

    The German brand in the Stellantis group had started electrification under the aegis of GM.

    The Corsa-e and the Mokka-e are currently available, and the electric Astra will follow in 2023.

    From 2024, each series will offer at least one electrified model, and from 2028 Opel will rely entirely on battery-electric vehicles such as the new Manta.

    Numbers 4 and 5 complete the alignment as a purely electric brand.

  • Renault:

    The semi-car Twizy and the small car Zoe were early e-mobiles, today there is also the Renault Mégane E-Tech and some commercial vehicles.

  • Škoda:

    After the phase-out of the small Citygo, the Enyaq is the only electric model from the VW subsidiary.

    Electrification is to be continued, but Škoda has not given a specific end date for combustion engines.

  • Tesla:

    Sure thing - combustion engines or hybrids never existed and never will in Elon Musk's company.

    These are today

    Model S,


    model x,


    Model 3 and the Model Y in the program.

    Cybertruck and Roadster are scheduled for 2023, but may be further delayed.

    The former hybrid pioneer is weak when it comes to electric vehicles and is currently revising its catch-up strategy.

    The brand's only electric car (alongside the Lexus UX 300e), the bZ4X, had to be recalled due to loose wheel hub bolts.

    Toyota still relies on hydrogen and internal combustion engines.

  • VW:

    Currently there are VW ID.3, ID.4, ID.5 and ID.

    Buzz four all-electric models.

    The successor to the popular e-up is on the agenda for 2025, followed a year later by the high-tech sedan under the project name Trinity.

    From 2026, the core brand of the Volkswagen Group only wants to develop purely electric cars, and by 2030 their share in Europe should grow to at least 70 percent of sales.

    2033 is supposed to be the end of combustion engines.

  • Volvo:

    The subsidiary of the Chinese Geely Group was one of the first car brands to announce its complete electrification.

    Under the nickname "Recharge", Volvo sells both plug-in hybrids and purely electric variants, such as those of the C40 and its SUV variant XC40.

    Five more BEVs are to follow within the next five years, and Volvo wants to be a purely electric brand by 2030.
