Ikea has announced an accelerated time plan for their planned switch to electrified vehicles. As things stood, in 2020 deliveries in the inner city areas of Amsterdam, Los Angeles, New York, Paris and Shanghai will be conducted in a fully electric manner.

By 2020 the Swedish furniture shop will also offer charging stations for electrified vehicles at all their locations in 30 nations. The plan for 2025 is then to ensure that all last-mile deliveries by the company are all done electrically. Head of the Ikea Group, Jesper Brodin, added that sustainable development is important to the company, “that’s why we’re speeding up the transition to EV in five inner city areas.”

As a member of the e-mobility initiative EV100, Ikea plans to be an early adopter of new energy vehicles. In Germany, Ikea is further adding HPC chargers at their locations, and has begun testing cooperations with Hertz and SAIC in Frankfurt and two other German locations.
