The Future is electric
The future is
ELECTRIC

Electric drivetrains are a prerequisite for climate-neutral mobility of the future. This is why the BMW Group is consistently expanding its range of electric vehicles. As early as 2023, the Group will offer at least one fully electric model in virtually all key segments. From 2025 onwards, the BMW Group plans to increase its delivery share of all-electric vehicles to 50% with the Neue Klasse, while also further reducing its carbon footprint over the entire life cycle. In doing so, it will utilize its experience as a pioneer of e-mobility.

As early as 2023, the BMW Group will offer around a dozen all-electric models that are ready to hit the road, thanks to intelligent vehicle architectures and a highly flexible production network. Thus, the BMW Group will offer at least one fully electric model in virtually all relevant series, from the compact segment to the ultra-luxury class. Following the BMW i3, the MINI Cooper SE and the BMW iX3, the BMW i4 and the BMW iX completed the all-electric range for customers in 2021. The company has also announced fully electric versions of the BMW 5 Series, 7 Series and BMW X1. Rolls-Royce and MINI are likewise resolutely charting a course to electromobility. In 2021, for instance, the fully electric MINI was the brand’s best-selling model.

TOMORROW: THE NEUE KLASSE

By the middle of the decade, the Neue Klasse will have set new standards in digitalisation, electrification and sustainability in the BMW Group. The Neue Klasse is based on a flexible architecture – the so-called New Cluster Architecture (NCAR) – that is uncompromisingly oriented towards battery-electric drivetrains. This consists of the three future-oriented core elements – “electric”, “digital” and “circular” – and stands not only for innovative technology but also for new ways of working.

Through the New Cluster Architecture, the BMW Group will create ultra-efficient and high-performance fully electric vehicles. It will offer a typical BMW driving sensation, an emotional design, and a powerful and highly efficient drivetrain. It will also sport the next generation battery, an entirely newly developed high-voltage storage concept with optimised cell design, and last but not least a revolutionary interior experience.

And of course there will be individually configurable and bookable digital functions, attractive offers for driver assistance and automated driving. In addition to this, it will achieve a new level of sustainability through the approaches underpinning the circular economy and the premise of “Secondary First” – i.e. the preferred use of secondary materials when and wherever possible. In this way, the Neue Klasse will make a significant contribution to reduce the carbon footprint across the entire vehicle life cycle.

TODAY: BROAD PRODUCT RANGE, NOT NICHE

Today, BMW Group customers can choose between fully electric, plug-in hybrid and efficient combustion engine vehicles. This freedom of choice is exampled in the BMW X3, which is available either with a plug-in hybrid drivetrain, a combustion engine (diesel and petrol) or a purely electric drivetrain (as the BMW iX3). Such choice will also be available for further series in the BMW Group.

By 2030, at least half of the BMW Group’s global deliveries should be fully electric vehicles. Over the next ten years, we also plan to put around 10-million all-electric vehicles on the road. In the early 2030s, the MINI brand will have an all-electric model line-up, whilst Rolls-Royce has announced its intention to do so in the same period.

MINI Cooper SE

Since 2019, the MINI Cooper SE has paved the way for sustainable driving experiences in urban settings as the first fully electric premium compact car. MINI will be the first BMW Group brand to go fully electric.

17,6-15,2 kWh/100km (WLTP)

BMW iX3

As the first model to feature the fifth-generation BMW eDrive, the fully electric Sports Activity Vehicle in the premium mid-range class, the BMW iX3, combines high efficiency, energy density and sustainability – seen, for instance, in its ability to remove rare earths in the e-motor.

18,9-18,5 kWh/100km (WLTP)

BMW i4

At the end of 2021, the first BMW i4 models were delivered to their customers. This fully electric gran coupe marries up an elegant design with BMW’s unmistakable sportiness – and has an electric range of 590 kilometres.

22,5–16,1 kWh/100km (WLTP)

BMW iX

With two motors, four powered wheels and unique control of the torque, the iX has reached a new level in driving dynamics. Focused from the very beginning on e-mobility, automated driving and digital connectivity, it is a pioneer of a new age.

24,5–19,3 kWh/100km (WLTP)

BMW i7

Progressive, digital, innovative: In 2022, we will launch the new BMW 7 Series. This will be the only luxury sedan to offer customers a choice of drivetrain variants. The most powerful variant – the BMW i7 – is fully electric.

Roadmap bis 2023

By 2023 the BMW Group will offer a dozen fully electric models. This includes electric variants of the high-volume BMW 5 Series, BMW X1 Series and MINI Countryman.

BMW Concept CE 02

The BMW Motorrad Concept CE 02 shows what a reliable urban vehicle can look like. With new proportions, new ergonomic seats, an output of 11 kW, and a speed of up to 90 km/h, the CE 02 further expands electric mobility on two wheels.

BMW CE 04

A quiet scooter, but an exciting experience: The purely electric Motorrad BMW CE 04 newly defines urban emobility new. It combines an exciting design with a high level of comfort, and a thrilling dynamic with intelligent connectivity.

Rolls-Royce Spectre

Launching the Spectre in 2023, Rolls-Royce is set to offer its first fully electric automobile. The name and design reflect the importance of this launch. The Spectre is powerful and edgy, but in profile smooth, sleek and elegant.

CHANGE AND RESILIENCE

The ongoing transformation towards electrification, digitalisation, efficiency and sustainability is having an impact on all areas of the BMW Group – in addition to human resources, development, suppliers and sales. This is particularly true for the global production network. For the 2021 production start of the all-electric BMW iX and BMW i4, BMW further optimised its vehicle production processes. The car manufacturer not only benefits from the traditional high flexibility of its production network but also from the high-level qualification of its employees. This makes the BMW Group stronger and more resilient.

The BMW Group’s production network spans across 31 locations in 15 countries. In many BMW Group plants, vehicles with all-electric, plug-in hybrid drivetrains or combustion engines are already being produced on the same production line. This allows us to react flexibly as the role of electromobility becomes ever-more important. At the end of 2021, the share of electrified vehicles in total production at the BMW Group’s Munich plant already stood at around 26%. Around a dozen other plants worldwide are already producing electrified vehicles or preparing for their production.

The realignment of the BMW Group plant in Munich demonstrates how the BMW Group is shaping transformation within the company. Since the launch of the all-electric BMW i4 in November 2021, the BMW Group’s main plant has been producing vehicles of all drivetrain types on the same production line. The employees have been trained and educated for this purpose. From 2023 onwards, at least half of all vehicles produced at the Munich plant will have an electrified drivetrain, with the majority being fully electric.
