“BYD will focus exclusively on electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids in the automotive sector,” — transmits Reuters message from the automaker.

The company emphasizes that it abandoned the production of vehicles running on combustible fuels in March this year in accordance with the requirements of the development strategy.

This move by BYD is a response to the Chinese government’s strategy to reduce carbon emissions by 2030.

The Chinese manufacturer’s statement emphasizes that the company will continue to produce all parts for previously purchased ICE vehicles, as well as provide services for their maintenance and repair.

Last December, American auto giant General Motors introduced the eCrate program to replace internal combustion engines in its car models with electric motors. Volvo, Ford, Mercedez-Benz and Jaguar Land Rover also presented their strategic programs for phasing out internal combustion engines by 2030-2040.
