The CEO of the German automaker Porsche has announced plans to significantly increase the share of electric vehicles in its range.
“By the end of the decade, more than 80 percent of our sports cars will be electric - hybrid or all-electric,” said Oliver Bloom.
In the end, only the legendary Porsche 911 will have an internal combustion engine. But even they will run not on oil, but on synthetic fuel.
The head of the company said that Porsche intends to invest in electromobility a total of 15 billion euros over the next five years.
Despite the coronavirus pandemic, Porsche increased its share of electric vehicles by 60 percent last year. More than 30,000 examples of the Taycan, Porsche's first fully electric model, could be produced in 2021.
In addition to electrification, Porsche also wants to promote the use of synthetic fuels in the coming years. The aim is to create a survival perspective for the Porsche 911 sports car icon - even with a future ban on internal combustion engines.
How are we previously reported all car makers will be switching to electric cars in the coming years and the main reason for this transition will be economic expediency, not concern for the climate.
