The German automaker is set to expand its lineup of electrified vehicles over the next ten years. According to the foreign edition of Autocar, BMW has decided to offer its customers 9 “green” car innovations. This is all part of a larger plan.

The Bavarian automaker, with its Power of Choice strategy, plans to sell over 7 million hybrids and electric cars, including under the MINI logo, by 2030.

Over these ten years, the Germans are going to take a leading position in the electric car niche. The goal is very ambitious, since the brand will have to compete with strong competitors – Tesla, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, etc. To achieve the set indicators, BMW will have to find owners for 460 thousand electrified cars annually.

For comparison, in 2019, the brand was content with a figure of 42,249 cars. The BMW i3 was sold in such a circulation – this is the debut serial electric car of the brand, which so far remains the only one. So the work is serious.

Among the announced new products are the electric crossover BMW iX3 – a battery-powered version of the BMW X3 SUV, as well as the five-door i4 coupe and the serial iNext, which will change its name to iX. The release of the last pair is expected next year. Also in the near future there will be a compact electric crossover iX1 and flagship electric cars with indexes i5 and i7. But the brand will say goodbye to the BMW i3 electric hatchback – its successor will be a model based on the 3 Series sedan.

Two more electric vehicles will carry the MINI logo. They will get the FAAR and CLAR platforms.

Earlier our portal said that the electric BMW i3S is being sold at a 50 percent discount. This benefit is available to US motorists. These cars were purchased for the police, but in the end they chose a different model for the police.
