In 2017, the BMW Group sold more than 100,000 electrified vehicles, a share of 21 percent of all electric and hybrids in Europe. In the electrified vehicle segment, the BMW Group’s market share is already three times larger than its share of the conventional vehicle market.

“By 2025, our global vehicle portfolio will include 25 fully- or part-electric models. At last year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, we unveiled our take on the future of e‑mobility with the BMW iVision Dynamics. This vehicle will become reality: we will build it in Munich – as the BMW i4,” Krüger added.
