Acura: The luxury brand of Honda currently offers the Acura MDX Sport Hybrid, which is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). However, Acura has yet to announce the launch of a BEV in the US market. Nevertheless, the luxury arm of Honda plans to electrify its entire lineup by 2025, and we can expect a BEV from them soon.
Alfa Romeo: Alfa Romeo, the Italian luxury car manufacturer owned by the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles group, does not have any electric vehicles in their fleet for the US market. However, they offer two PHEVs in Europe, the Alfa Romeo Giulia PHEV and the Alfa Romeo Stelvio PHEV. Still, Alfa Romeo has yet to announce when they plan to launch a BEV in the US market.
Buick: Although Buick has achieved significant success in the US market, the brand currently offers no BEV vehicle to the American audience. However, Buick offers the Buick Velite 6 in China, which is a BEV. There are also rumors that Buick could launch an all-electric crossover based on the Opel Mokka-e in the US market.
Chrysler: As a subsidiary of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, the Chrysler brand has yet to introduce any BEV vehicles to the US market. However, the automaker plans to roll out a series of EVs, including plug-in hybrid and all-electric models, starting in 2022. Chrysler also plans to launch its first all-electric minivan in 2025.
Dodge: Unlike its parent company, Dodge has yet to announce plans to launch any BEVs, let alone PHEVs, in the US market. However, several rumors suggest that the brand is working on an all-electric muscle car that could compete with the Tesla Model S and the Lucid Air.
The world is quickly moving towards a greener future, and the automotive industry is not far behind. As we transition to a future of sustainable transportation and cleaner energy, automotive brands need to adapt by introducing more electrified vehicles. The brands mentioned above may not currently offer BEVs in the US market, but it is only a matter of time before they do. It is thrilling to see how the industry is transforming, and we cannot wait to see what new vehicles appear on the market in the coming years.
