Rolls-Royce to go ‘fully electric’ by 2040, calculating UK and France will not be alone in banning ICE sales

The company aims for its first EV within 10 years, but will phase out its existing engines over several decades, CEO Torsten Müller-Otvos tells the FT. “Electrification is the future, full stop. You need to prepare yourself for that.”

Prediction: this will prove to be not fast enough. As the article points out, “China wants to have a fifth of its new cars powered electrically by 2025, and will require companies operating in the market to sell a proportion of electric vehicles.”
