Charging Forward: These Manufacturers are Going Electric

The automotive industry is abuzz with news about electric vehicles overtaking major manufacturer’s lineups. Several major brands have already announced when they’ll be producing only electric vehicles- some brands will be fully electric in the next ten years. The OneRequest team compiled a list of notable brands planning to go all electric, along with some other exciting EV announcements.

Chevrolet (2035)- 2022 Bolt EUV and EV

Chevrolet is following the lead of its parent company, General Motors, which plans to produce only electric vehicles by 2035. Chevrolet is releasing the new Bolt EUV and redesigned Bolt EV in 2022.  Both models have an estimated range of about 250 miles, available driver assistance technology, and one pedal driving capability.

The Bolt lineup isn’t Chevrolet’s only plan for electrifying its models. Chevrolet plans to release an all-electric Silverado truck with an estimated range of over 400 miles on a single charge! We don’t know much yet, but we’ll be here to give you all the details as soon as we get them.

GMC (2035)- 2022 Hummer EV Pickup and SUV

Hummer, revived as a sub-brand of GMC, is also following GM’s lead and plans to be all-EV by 2035. GMC plans to release an all-electric Hummer Pickup available in 2021 and SUV available in 2023. The Hummer offers a range of over 300 miles on both the SUV and Pickup, adjustable air suspension, and a feature that allows it to drive diagonally (like a Wonkavator!) for maneuvering tight spaces. The Hummers are currently the only GMC EVs that have been announced to the public, but we expect to see other electrified GMC trucks and SUVs soon!

Cadillac (2030)- 2023 Lyriq

2023 Lyriq

Unlike GMC and Chevrolet, Cadillac will go fully electric by 2030, 5 years earlier than GM. The 2023 Lyriq is Cadillac’s first EV. With over 300 miles of range on a full charge and at-home charging rates of up to 52 miles of range per charging hour, the Lyriq is ready for all your adventures. It also offers Super Cruise driver assistance technology and choreographed LED lighting.

The Lyriq is currently Cadillac’s only EV offering but it has plans for an electric sedan called the Celestiq. The Celestiq will only be custom-built in limited numbers though, and Cadillac has not announced a date for production.

Ford (Carbon Neutral by 2050)- 2022 F-150 Lightning and 2021 Mustang Mach-E

Ford has not announced when it will go fully electric, but it plans to be completely carbon neutral by 2050. The F-150 Lightning will release in 2022. It has an estimated range of 230 miles, off-road capability, and a maximum towing capability of 10,000 pounds.

The electrified Mustang Mach-E released in 2021 and is Ford’s first fully electric vehicle. The Mach-E and the F-150 Lightning are the only Ford EVs that are known to the public, but we anticipate many more EVs from Ford in the future.

Volvo (2030)- 2022 C40 Recharge and 2021 XC40 Recharge

Volvo plans to produce only full-electric cars by 2030. The 2022 C40’s 200-mile range, built-in Google technology, and leather-free interior make it a stunning edition to Volvo’s growing EV line-up. Volvo released the XC40 Recharge, its first pure electric compact SUV, in 2021.  Volvo plans for 50% of its models to be electric by 2025, so we are sure to see more EV models soon!   

Audi (2026)- 2022 Q4 e-tron and Q4 Sportback e-tron

By 2026, all Audi models will be electrified. It plans to phase out the production of internal combustion engines by 2033 and achieve zero emissions by 2050. Audi’s e-tron line offers a wide variety of electric and hybrid models, including both SUVs and sedans. The 2022 Q4 and the 2022 Q4 Sportback are Audi’s latest additions to the e-tron family. The e-tron family is growing, which means we’re sure to see more EVs from Audi.

Honda (2040)- 2024 Prologue

To kick off Honda’s efforts towards its goal of a zero-emission EV lineup by 2040, it announced the Honda Prologue set to hit markets in 2024. Honda’s partnership with General Motors made the Prologue possible! GM’s Ultium battery packs, the same ones that power the Cadillac Lyriq and the GMC Hummer EVs, will power Honda’s new electrified SUV. Not much is known about the Prologue yet, but we’re excited to learn more about Honda’s new EV!


This list is just a sampling of the many manufacturers going electric in the next several decades. With both new models and electrified classics, we’re sure to see more EVs on the road soon. Thinking of electrifying your ride? Use OneRequest to find your new EV.
