The BMW Group outlined a ten-year development strategy in its most recent press release. The strategy emphasizes the adherence to the aims of the Paris climate deal, the primary priority of which is the extension of electric mobility.
According tho the release, cars of the BMW and MINI models incorporating electrified drive systems are currently distributed in 74 countries worldwide, with more than 500,000 electrified vehicles delivered by 2019. Until the end of 2021, this number is expected to increase to over a million.
The environmental targets of the BMW Group aim to bring more than seven million cars with electrified drive systems on the road worldwide by 2030, two-thirds of which are all-electric. As a consequence of the dramatic growth in electric mobility, pollution from BMW Community automobiles per kilometer traveled would be decreased by about 40% by the year 2030.
The BMW 5 and BMW X1 high-volume series would be sold not only with traditional internal combustion engines and plug-in hybrid systems, but also with all-electric power modules. More series models with electrified and traditional drive systems would be developed on a single production line in the future. For eg, the next generation of BMW 7 Series luxury sedans would be sold as a pure electric model option.
