Volkswagen's Entire Car Range Is Going Electric By 2030

Mercedes-Benz followed Volvo, JLR and VW with a promise that it would offer electric versions of all its cars via an announcement at Frankfurt.

The group plans to bring a total of over 80 new electrified models to customers by 2025, including some 50 purely battery-powered vehicles and 30 plug-in hybrids as it doubles its investment in zero-emission vehicles to 20bn euros (£18bn) in a bid to put dieselgate behind it.

Matthias Müller, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen said: "We have got the message and we will deliver".
