Daimler AG, the owner of Mercedes has decided to go all electric by 2039. The company has taken a great initiative to cut its planet-warming emissions, promising a fully carbon-neutral fleet of passenger cars by 2039. The German company said on Monday that electric vehicles will make up more than half its total car sales by 2030 and that it’s working to roll out lines of zero-emissions trucks, vans, and buses. Daimler will aim to have electric models make up more than half of its total car sales by 2030, including all-electric models and plug-in hybrids, and is also working on new lines of electric vans, trucks, and buses. The company made this announcement keeping a deadline which is 11 years late than that kept by the Volkswagen Group which vowed in March to launch 70 new electrical vehicles by 2028 and become carbon neutral by 2050. Daimler timed its announcement to the rollout of the Mercedes-Benz EQC, its new all-electric sports utility vehicle. The company said wind turbines will power its German production lines for both the vehicle and the batteries that power it, and promised to use renewable electricity at all its European factories by 2022. In light of the recent environmental awareness wave that preceded and followed the 'climatic emergency' declarations of nations, such initiatives of automobile companies are most welcomed.
