The BMW Group is accelerating technological advancement and advancing the transition to sustainable mobility. The corporation is accelerating e-mobility while getting ready for a technological breakthrough in its Neue Klasse and picking up the pace once more considerably. The BMW Group is also upping its goals for the e-mobility ramp-up: By the end of the year, the business will have 15 fully electric models in production, including prototypes, spanning around 90% of its existing market segments.
This also includes four high-volume BMW model series: the BMW 3 Series, BMW 5 Series, BMW X1 and BMW X3, in addition to current vehicles such the BMW i4, BMW iX, and MINI SE. When the new BMW i7 debuts in 2022, the new BMW 7 Series will also have a unique role to play.
“We see 2021 as clear evidence that successful transformation pays off. The strong result we achieved in financial year 2021 is the outcome of our consistent strategy – with an open-technology approach and the right products at the right time,” said Oliver Zipse, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, on Wednesday in Munich.
“We have laid the foundations to build on this success in the coming years: With the Neue Klasse, we are leading sustainable mobility into a new technological dimension. By extending the contract with our BBA joint venture until 2040, the BMW Group is also taking its growth to the next level,” he added.
“The BMW iX and BMW i4 are probably the best electric cars on the market currently – the test reviews and strong demand from our customers speak for themselves. This year, the BMW i7 will take things to the next level,” said Zipse.
BMW intends to sell about 25% of its vehicles exclusively online by 2025. The business wants to see more than two million fully electric cars on the roads by the end of 2025.
The BMW 7 Series will become the first fully electric luxury sedan in its lineup once the BMW i7 is introduced. The BMW 7 Series is now offered with either an internal combustion engine or a plug-in hybrid drive system. The new BMW 7 Series also has plug-in hybrid and cutting-edge internal combustion drive technologies. Higher efficiency is offered by this new generation of diesel and gasoline engines.
Before 2030, sales of the company’s fully electric vehicles might account for 50% of its total global sales. For the first time this year, a small batch of the BMW iX5 Hydrogen will be used for testing and demonstration.
