Cars using alternative powertrains, such as electric power, fuel cells and plug-in hybrids, are expected to see substantial growth over the next decade. Only two models were available in 1997, compared with 98 in 2019.

Probably quite likely to occur when one considers that batteries are becoming better with better ranges (200-300 nmi) and faster charging ability supported by infrastructure at a cheaper price tag. I think most cars that were battery powered in the 1990's were insanely short ranged as in 25-50 nmi , limited recharge infrastructure and cost a ton.

The number of electric car models available to consumers in Europe is expected to triple by 2021, says a European environmental lobby group.

 
...In 2021, carmakers are forecast to bring 92 fully electric models and 118 plug-in hybrid models to market.
 
If they stick to these plans, 22% of vehicles produced could have a plug by 2025, which would enable manufacturers to easily meet the EU's car CO2 emissions target of 95g/km by 2025.

Let me repost a set of predictions I made:

 

 

I predict the following will be true by 2029:

  • "Foldable" smartphones will be commercially available. Folded up, they will be the same size as today's smartphones, but you'll be able to open them like a manila folder, exposing a larger inner screen. They will obsolete mini tablets. 
  • Augmented reality glasses that have fixed Google Glass' shortcomings will be on the market. The device category will come back. 
  • It will be cheaper to buy an electric version of a particular model of car than it will be to buy the gas-powered version. 
  • China's GDP will be higher than America's.

In 2030, we will look back on the 2020s as the decade when electric cars went mainstream.
