How does that one saying go? “If you can’t beat them, join them. If you can’t join them, become them.” It looks like that’s the spin the German automaker is doing anyway. Reportedly, the Beems are ramping up EV production in anticipation for the new year. The new year of 2023, mainly. BMW CEO Oliver Zipse had this to say: “We will build a quarter of a million more electric cars than originally planned.”
Quite interesting if you ask me. BMW is looking for every fifth car they sell to have an electric engine. That’s a big jump from the 8% off of this year alone. Zipse is hopeful that BMW can make it happen but the issue remains that 15,000 private and 1,300 public charging points would need installation ASAP.
But essentially, if we’re talking about real numbers, the idea is to put more than 7 million electric vehicles by 2030. This will ultimately undo the big combustion corruption that American automakers have for so long embraced. Hybrids and pure EVs are going to be the future. And you’d have to be an electric car stuck between eternal suffering and damnation to stop it.
BMW models like the iX3, the iX, the X1, 3 Series and 7 Series are all expected to have their runs in the Sun, as well as the 4 Series Gran Coupe model, the i4.
For now, the i3 is more expensive than the PS5. It’s still in great customer demand, even though it came out all the way back in 2013. It’s been an exclusive sell, as the Electric Vehicle with a twist on the engine. The two-cylinder motorcycle-sourced variant has been discontinued.
Plenty of folks swear by these cars and to this day, the 5 Series sedans also remain at the core of the brand. Of course, that’s 250,000 electric cars to make between 2021 and 2023. So what’s it really going to take.
BMW may have more cars to make, which gives us more cars to ship. If youre moving across the United States, visit us at Columbus Auto Transport for all your auto transport needs.
