European car buyers will have 214 electric and plug-in hybrid models to choose from as carmakers race to capitalise on demand

European car buyers will soon have a wealth of different electric models to choose from, with the number EVs offered by automakers set to triple within the next three years thanks to a €145bn investment from the sector, analysis released today suggests.

EU carmakers will collectively have 214 different electric vehicle models on the market in 2021, up from just 60 on the market at the end of last year, research from green NGO Transport & Environment (T&E) shows.

It means that, over the next three years, carmakers are set to bring 92 fully-electric and 118 plug-in hybrid models to market, as the industry races to capitalise on the rapidly growing consumer demand and regulatory push for low emission vehicles.
