Yesterday, BMW held a major shareholders meeting in which the German brand has outlined some of its next steps. Among them is the development of a range that by 2023 will have up to 12 pure electric cars and the start of production of the iX3 this summer has also been confirmed.
BMW will bet on electrification from different fronts, with a range that in the next three years will see up to 25 offers equipped with some electrical system. We will see hybrids, plug-in hybrids, but also a strong presence of pure electric cars.
These will be distributed among the group’s brands, BMW and Mini, in an offer related to battery-powered electrics that will range from the current BMW i3 and Mini SE, to the new iX3, BMW i4, and BMW iNext.
But these will only be the forefront of a 100% electric offer that will mean the arrival of 8 other new models between 2022 and 2023.
Among the first to arrive is the ix3 SUV, which from the company’s management has confirmed that everything is ready to start production this summer. This will allow it to meet the objectives of starting deliveries of the new electric this fall. Something that means that BMW will be able to add a few sales and to this exercise that will undoubtedly come in handy for the issue of emissions.
