BMW Meets Promise to Deliver 100,000 Electrified Vehicles in 2017
In January 2017, BMW Group announced an ambitious goal to deliver 100,000 electrified vehicles to customers across the globe by the end of the year. Having easily achieved that goal, the company commemorated its success by using a light installation to transform its world-famous "Four-Cylinder" headquarters into four upright "batteries" on December 18 — emphasizing the technological evolution that's occurring in the automotive industry.
BMW, long at the forefront of electro-mobility, now has plans in place to offer 25 fully-electric and plug-in hybrid models by the year 2025. Customers can look forward to the company rolling out such new models as the i8 Roadster in 2019, the electric version of the BMW X3 in 2020 and the BMW iNext in 2021.
Harald Krüger, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, remarked in a press release, "We deliver on our promise. This 99-metre-high signal is lighting the way into the era of electro-mobility. Selling 100,000 electrified cars in one year is an important milestone, but this is just the beginning for us. Since the introduction of the BMW i3 in 2013, we’ve delivered over 200,000 electrified cars to our customers and by 2025, we will offer 25 electrified models to our customers. Our early focus on electro-mobility has made this success possible – and electro-mobility will continue to be my measure for our future success."
