General Motors is the latest automaker to announce a plan to go all-electric.

The company unveiled a long-term plan Thursday that would end the production of all gas-powered vehicles by the year 2035, replaced by all-electric cars, trucks, and SUVs. GM also hopes to be fully carbon-neutral by 2040.

Over 98% of GM’s current sales come from gas-powered vehicles, but they plan to have more than 30 different electric models for sale in the next four years.

Will gas-powered vehicles ever completely go away? Have you made the switch to a hybrid or electric car?
