plan Number ONENEXT and one of a company’s 4 key
future-focused ACES topics (Autonomous, Connected,
Electrified and Services/Shared). Having announced record spending on
RD in 2018, Harald Krüger confirmed, “We are implementing our
plan rigorously and investing extensively in a technologies of
a future; expanding a heading purpose in electric mobility is a clear
focus. 2018 was a poignant year in this regard, with the
proclamation of vital new vital co-operations as good as the
phenomenon of several pivotal new models,” Krüger said.

 

2018: Major milestones

FEBRUARY: The BMW Group announces a corner try with a Chinese
manufacturer Great Wall, with a initial concentration of
a team-work on a corner RD and internal prolongation of a MINI
electric vehicle. This preference was taken for vital reasons, in
sequence to precedence a intensity of a MINI brand. The BMW Group views
China as a reward marketplace of a destiny and it’s already a most
active e-mobility marketplace in a world, with outrageous potential. MINI is
a ideal compare for a marketplace and a vehicles will be even more
appealing to business there if they are built locally.

 

MARCH: At a Geneva Motor Show, Harald Krüger confirms a BMW i
Vision Dynamics will go into array prolongation as a BMW
i4
, built in Munich from 2021.

 

APRIL: The BMW Concept iX3 is suggested during the
Beijing Auto Show, a initial full-electric indication in a core BMW
brand. It will be built in China and exported to a world, with a

2.0 l/100 km; sum energy expenditure 14.5 kWh/100 km; sum CO2
emissions 46 g/km*) rises a roof on a world’s best-selling plug-in
hybrid sports car, assisting altogether sales of a BMW i8 to boost by
24% in 2018.

 

JULY: The BMW Group signs a long-term agreement value 4 billion
euros with a Chinese association Contemporary Amperex Technology Co.
Limited (CATL) to supply battery cells. The endowment of
this agreement is a wilful cause in CATL’s preference to build the
world’s many modernized battery dungeon prolongation trickery in Germany.
From 2021 onwards, cells for a BMW iNEXT – that will be
done during a BMW Group plant in Dingolfing – will be supplied
by a new CATL plant in Erfurt. The BMW Group has thereby anchored
a whole e-mobility value sequence in Germany – from battery cell
prolongation by to a finished vehicle.

 

SEPTEMBER: The world’s press are postulated a initial demeanour during the
BMW iNEXT Vision Vehicle, a BMW Group’s
pioneering spearhead for destiny innovation. It combines autonomous
driving, connectivity, foundation and services while gripping the
concentration on a patron and charity them their new “Favourite Space”.
The BMW iNEXT Vision Vehicle runs on a company’s fifth generation
electric-drivetrain, with a operation of over 600 km in a WLTP cycle.

 

OCTOBER: The BMW Group, Northvolt and
Umicore
form a corner record consortium in sequence to work
closely together on a continued growth of a finish and
tolerable value sequence for industrialised battery cells for
electrified vehicles in Europe. Given a pointy arise in direct for
battery cells, a consortium also aims to tighten a life-cycle loop
of tender materials to a biggest probable border with extensive recycling.

 

NOVEMBER: Further growth of BMW eDrive record sees the
launch of a BMW i3 (120 Ah) and a BMW i3s (120Ah)
(combined fuel expenditure 0.0/0.0 l/100 km; sum power
expenditure 13.1/14.0 – 14.6 kWh/100 km; sum CO2 emissions: 0
g/km*). The storage ability of this pioneering car’s high-voltage
battery has therefore been doubled given a strange marketplace launch in
2013. In bland use, a dual models are now means to cover a distance
of 260 kilometres. Remarkable in many ways, a BMW i3 also bucks the
common sales curve: deliveries of a BMW i3 have augmenting each year
given it was launched, with 2018 sales adult 11% on a prior year.

 

NOVEMBER: The electric motors and high-voltage batteries developed
for a BMW i3 will be used to energy a city train done by
Karsan that is designed privately for use in
inner-city traffic. This follows a successful co-operation with the
Deutsche Post auxiliary Streetscooter, where BMW i battery modules
capacitate a travel scooter to be used all day for delivering letters
and packages but a need for halt charging.

 

2019: New launches

This year will see a launch of several new plug-in hybrids,
including a new era BMW X5 plug-in hybrid
(combined fuel consumption: 2.1 l/100 km; sum power
consumption: 23.0 kWh/100 km; sum CO2 emissions: 49 g/km*) and
a new BMW 3 Series plug-in hybrid (fuel
consumption: from 1.7 l/100 km; CO2 emissions: from 39 g/km*). These
models will have a latest era of electric expostulate trains,
charity an electric operation of adult to 80 km according to a NEDC cycle.
2019 is also a year when a hotly expected MINI
Electric
will be revealed, that will be built in Oxford, UK.

 

Further ahead

With a launch of a BMW i3, a BMW Group determined itself early
as a colonize in a margin of electric mobility. By 2021, a BMW Group
will have five all-electric models: a BMW i3, the
MINI Electric, a BMW iX3, a BMW i4 and a BMW iNEXT. By 2025,
that array is set to grow to during slightest twelve models. Including
plug-in hybrids, a BMW Group’s electrified product portfolio will
afterwards contain during slightest 25 models.

 

This far-reaching operation is probable interjection to highly stretchable vehicle
architectures
and an equally stretchable tellurian production
system. Going forward, a BMW Group will be able of manufacturing
models with all-electric (BEV), plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and conventional
(ICE) drivetrains on a singular prolongation line. Its ability to
confederate e-mobility in a prolongation network enables a BMW Group
to respond even some-more flexibly to a augmenting direct for electrified
vehicles. By a finish of 2019, a BMW Group expects to have some-more than
half a million electrified vehicles on a roads.

 

The BMW Group is now building a fifth
generation
of a electric drivetrain, in that a interplay
of electric motor, transmission, energy wiring and battery will be
additionally optimised. Integrating a electric motor, transmission
and energy wiring also cuts costs. Another advantage is that the
electric engine does not need singular earths, enabling
a BMW Group to revoke a coherence on their availability. The
fifth era of a electric drivetrain will be commissioned for the
initial time in a BMW iX3 in 2020.

 

All performance, fuel consumption, emissions and operation total are provisional.

* Fuel consumption, CO2 emissions, energy expenditure and
operation have been distributed formed on a new WLTP exam cycle and
blending to NEDC for comparison purposes, contingent on a tyre format
selected. In these vehicles, opposite total than those published
here might request for a comment of taxes and other vehicle-related
duties that are (also) formed on CO2 emissions.

charity an electric operation of adult to 80 km according to a NEDC cycle.
2019 is also a year when a hotly expected MINI
Electric
will be revealed, that will be built in Oxford, UK.

 

Further ahead

With a launch of a BMW i3, a BMW Group determined itself early
as a colonize in a margin of electric mobility. By 2021, a BMW Group
will have five all-electric models: a BMW i3, the
MINI Electric, a BMW iX3, a BMW i4 and a BMW iNEXT. By 2025,
that array is set to grow to during slightest twelve models. Including
plug-in hybrids, a BMW Group’s electrified product portfolio will
afterwards contain during slightest 25 models.

 

This far-reaching operation is probable interjection to highly stretchable vehicle
architectures
and an equally stretchable tellurian production
system. Going forward, a BMW Group will be able of manufacturing
models with all-electric (BEV), plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and conventional
(ICE) drivetrains on a singular prolongation line. Its ability to
confederate e-mobility in a prolongation network enables a BMW Group
to respond even some-more flexibly to a augmenting direct for electrified
vehicles. By a finish of 2019, a BMW Group expects to have some-more than
half a million electrified vehicles on a roads.

 

The BMW Group is now building a fifth
generation
of a electric drivetrain, in that a interplay
of electric motor, transmission, energy wiring and battery will be
additionally optimised. Integrating a electric motor, transmission
and energy wiring also cuts costs. Another advantage is that the
electric engine does not need singular earths, enabling
a BMW Group to revoke a coherence on their availability. The
fifth era of a electric drivetrain will be commissioned for the
initial time in a BMW iX3 in 2020.

 

All performance, fuel consumption, emissions and operation total are provisional.

* Fuel consumption, CO2 emissions, energy expenditure and
operation have been distributed formed on a new WLTP exam cycle and
blending to NEDC for comparison purposes, contingent on a tyre format
selected. In these vehicles, opposite total than those published
here might request for a comment of taxes and other vehicle-related
duties that are (also) formed on CO2 emissions.
