Worldwide they aim to sell more than 100,000 (electric and PHEVs) this year. They say: “We are systematically electrifying all brands and model series within the group. This includes new fully-electric vehicles like the BMW X3 and MINI. At the same time, we are expanding the BMW i portfolio.”
BMW currently have nine electrified models in their portfolio (i3, i8, 225xe, 330e, 530e, 740e, X5 40e, X1xDrive 25Le and MINI E Countryman.
There will be a fully-electric MINI for 2019 and a BMW X3 version for 2020, a PHEV BMW i8 roadster for 2018 and a full electric iNext for 2021.
And they insist there is more to come as future car platforms will be built to accommodate full-electric and PHEV as well as petrol/diesel power.
Between now and 2020 they expect to unveil a C5 Aircross PHEV (late 2019), DS7 Crossback PHEV (Spring 2019) and a full-electric Multispace (late 2017) as well as a full-electric Berlingo (late summer 2017).
