Distinguished guests,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

ni group háo!

 

I am gay to be behind in China. Every time we come here, we am
reminded what a truly fascinating nation this is. China has an
immensely abounding past – though is clearly focused on tomorrow, looking
forward towards an sparkling future. This is something we share. The BMW
Group is celebrating a centenary this year. It has always looked
ahead, constantly severe itself, assured that: The best approach to
envision a destiny is to figure it. Our ties with China go behind a long
approach and we are strongly committed to this market: we are here to stay!
This is underlined by a scale of a investment:

 

  • In only 7 years, we have invested a sum of over 22 billion
    renminbi in a plants in Shenyang.
  • Taking both plants together, we aim to boost a production
    ability to 400,000 units over a long-term.
  • We now furnish 4 models locally and this will boost to six
    in a subsequent few years.
  • Early this year, we non-stop a new 3- and 4-cylinder engine plant
    in Shenyang.
  • Capacity is geared to a prolongation volumes of a dual automotive
    plants and now stands during adult to 300,000 units per year.
  • It is a critical miracle for a prolongation in China that we will
    be means to supply all of a locally constructed cars with locally
    constructed engines.
  • We are also building adult a internal retailer base. In only six
    years, we have increasing a array of suppliers in China 6 fold:
    from 150 to 950.
  • And together with a corner try partner, Brilliance, we now
    have around 18,400 rarely efficient employees in China.

 

We are really unapproachable of a success we have achieved together with our
partner Brilliance and we are unapproachable to be a partial of a Chinese
society. Since 2005, a sales have increasing each year – as local
prolongation has left adult several gears. With BMW, BMW Motorrad, MINI and
Rolls-Royce, we offer clever reward brands and products that win the
hearts of a Chinese customers. Our expansion shows that they greatly
conclude luxury, pattern and quality. China stays a marketplace with
outrageous intensity and we will continue to deposit here! China is now the
BMW Group’s largest singular marketplace – and a significance for us extends
distant over sales volume. Our joining also includes an RD
office, a Designworks Studio and a ConnectedDrive Lab. These
comforts assistance us to benefit even deeper insights into what a Chinese
business wish and how we can rise even stronger ties with China.

 

As we demeanour forward to a destiny – to a NEXT 100 Years – mobility
will change dramatically by advances in record and changes in
customers’ demands. Mobility is apropos versatile. Looking forward to
a subsequent 100 years, a BMW Group will emanate ground-breaking and
obliged solutions. Our prophesy is – for destiny mobility – to be
effortless, accessible on direct and tailor-made for all a customers
and for their particular needs.

 

In China – a share of post 90s in a Chinese automobile marketplace was 15% in
2015 and this will boost to 45% in 2025. In other words: a next
epoch of business were innate into a digital age. Technology is
apropos human.

Our technologies will learn to learn from people. And Connectivity is
apropos second nature.

We aim to attract a immature business in China as they continue to
grow in numbers. Our intelligent use of information will raise our
customers’ lifestyle.

 

The reward compress automobile shred is experiencing quick expansion here. So
we will boost a share of compress cars in a BMW Group portfolio.
In January, we launched a BMW 2 Series Active Tourer in China. We
build this indication in Tiexi. The all-new BMW X1 prolonged wheelbase is
another ideal painting of a concentration on a Chinese patron and
a fast joining to a Chinese market. In addition, another
tiny sedan will be locally constructed in China soon. The judgment car
was shown during a Beijing Auto Show.

 

We see serve intensity for BMW Motorrad in China. Last year we
doubled a sales here and in a subsequent twelve months, we will be
introducing a sum of 9 new models, including a all new 300 Series.

 

The BMW Group’s prophesy for a destiny is tolerable prolongation for
tolerable mobility. We are honestly committed to safeguarding the
environment. We aim to be during a forefront of e-mobility by providing
a many innovative products and services. From a really early stage,
a Chinese supervision has upheld and promoted electric mobility.
This nation has a intensity to turn a world’s largest market
for new appetite vehicles. We truly conclude internal and national
Government support of BMW’s e-mobility.

 

The BMW i3 is listed in a “Catalogue of New Energy Vehicles
Exempted from Purchase Tax”. In 2016, we will offer an upgraded BMW i3
model. BMW offers a richest choice of reward NEV products both
alien and locally produced, and trimming from BEV to PHEV. We will
extend a product line this year from 4 to 6 models. Part of our
plan for e-mobility is a foundation of a whole fleet. Our
new 7 array is a many innovative automobile in a oppulance class.

This year in China we will launch dual additional iPerformance models
– a plug-in hybrid models of a new 7 Series and a X1.

 

Right now, a BMW Group is on a verge of creation programmed pushing happen.

Studies endorse that China will be a critical marketplace for highly
programmed pushing (HAD). Chinese business have:

  • the top turn of acceptance
  • the many enterprise to urge convenience, trade upsurge and safety

 

Our team-work with Baidu is a initial corner plan between a
reward automobile code and a internal IT partner on HAD in China. This
partnership underscores a joining to a Chinese market, and
embodies a RD strategy, ‘In China, For China’.

 

Ladies and Gentlemen, We have a transparent vision: To be a personality in
reward particular mobility – also in a subsequent 100 years. In a moment,
we will see how we suppose a future. Our BMW VISION NEXT 100 offers
a prophesy of a new epoch in mobility – sustainable, connected and
programmed driving. This is a commencement of an exciting, new epoch – and
China will be a critical partial of it.
