Mercedes-Benz says half its sales will be PHEV or electric by 2030

According to Källenius, the company sees the "Paris Agreement [on climate change] is more than an obligation – it’s our conviction". As such, Mercedes-Benz is aiming to have plug-in hybrid or pure-electric vehicles constitute over 50% of its car sales by 2030.
