The number of electric vehicles available to customers across Europe
is expected to triple by 2021. That's according to research from the European Federation for Transport and Environment
who have forecast that 98 fully electric and plug-in hybrid models will be available at the end of this year, a number that is expected to grow to 214 models by 2021.
One of the driving forces behind the trend is going to be affordability with cheaper electric models expected to result in increasing numbers of consumers making the switch from petrol and diesel. In 2021, the Volkswagen Group
is expected to have the most models on offer, 41, followed by Daimler (23) and BMW (21).
