By 2025, BMW will sell 25 different models of electric/plug-in hybrid vehicles
In a disclosure which highlights BMW’s commitment to bring new ‘green’ vehicles to the market, the automaker has revealed that by the year 2025, it will offer 25 different models of battery-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles across the globe.
The commitment to bring 25 different battery-electric and plug-in hybrid models was reiterated by BMW in February 2018. The mentioned number coincides with the figure put forth by the company at a December 2017 presentation and interview which was covered by UK-based outlet AutoExpress.
BMW already offers a fairly impressive line-up of electric/plug-in hybrid cars, including the battery-electric i3, the plug-in hybrid i8, as well as six plug-in hybrid editions of the company’s production sedans and crossovers. The 2017 BMW i3, equipped with a 33-kilowatt-hour battery, is an electric vehicle from ‘Generation 4’ of BMW’s electric-car program, as will be the forthcoming 2019 BMW i8 which will also have a bigger battery.
The new battery-electric and plug-in hybrid models from BWM will add to the automaker’s existing line of electric vehicles; and will comprise ‘Generation 5’ of its electric-car program.
The ‘Generation 5’ models of electric/plug-in hybrid cars to be produced by BMW will reportedly have the ability to accommodate two battery packs of different thicknesses. Specifically speaking, the bigger electric vehicles will use a new version of the CLAR platform, whereas the smaller electric vehicles will use a modified UKL front- or all-wheel-drive platform (FAAR).
