BMW will present ‘a strong line of pure-electric concept vehicles’ in 2018
German automaker BMW has recently announced that it will be presenting a series of new all-electric vehicles this year. The announcement was made by BMW’s CEO Harald Krüger at the company’s recently-held Annual Accounts Press Conference 2018.
BMW’s announcement of its plans to unveil several new all-electric vehicles in 2018 comes after a few years of complacency. The company had introduced the first wave of its all-electric vehicle back in the year 2013, when it launched the BMW i3.
According to the announcement made by Krüger, BMW will unveil “a number of pure-electric concept vehicles” in 2018. Krüger said that the pure-electric concept vehicles unveiled during the course of the year “will all go into series production.”
Revealing details about the forthcoming second wave of all-electric vehicles to be presented by BMW this year, Krüger said that these vehicles will include the iX3 (the first all-electric BMW), the BMW iNEXT (the company’s new technology flagship), and the entrancing BMW i Vision Dynamics (which will be available in the market as the BMW i4). These vehicles will likely hit production by 2021.
Krüger further disclosed that BMW will be producing the BMW iNEXT as well as the BMW i4 in Germany. Both the models were described by Krüger as a proof of BMW’s “innovative strength.”
