BMW Group is stepping up the pace of its e-mobility expansion, with 25 electrified models launched by 2023, two years ahead of schedule.
Fully charged as it accelerates along its Future Highway 2025, the BMW Group is adjusting frequency to up the tempo of its electromobility expansion programme. The company will now achieve the total of 25 electrified models previously announced for 2025 two years earlier, in 2023. Thanks to flexible vehicle architectures for fully-electric, plug-in hybrid and combustion engine drive trains, the company is able to respond quickly to changing conditions. More than half of the 25 models will be fully electric.

By 2021, we will have doubled our sales of electrified vehicles compared with 2019," said Harald Krüger, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, in Munich, Germany on Tuesday. "We will offer 25 electrified vehicles already in 2023 - two years earlier than originally planned. We expect to see a steep growth curve towards 2025: Sales of our electrified vehicles should increase by an average of 30% every year."
