MINIs in China than ever before: over 35,000, in fact.

pattern elements, new transmissions, and a latest digital services.
The 5-door indication subsequent to me is only one instance of a new line-up.
All new facilities will also be accessible for a 3-door and a MINI
Convertible. They will strike a Chinese marketplace in May.

And MINI is some-more than only cars. we am gay that we are realising
a vital non-automotive MINI plan in China: MINI LIVING. In spring
2019, we will open a initial co-living commencement done adult of
apartments, operative spaces, informative as good as convenience offerings and
– of march – mobility. And we are now exploring serve cities.

And now, let’s switch to my second brand: BMW Motorrad. Though the

building a marketplace here. Step by step, we are removing some-more and more
people vehement about roving a motorcycle. For instance this subsequent one.

Thanks to a customers, BMW Motorrad is a undisputed personality in the
Chinese reward motorcycle segment. A shred we created. We will

Ni Hao! Good morning!

I’m gay to benefaction a all-new BMW M2
: The ultimate compress high-performance sports car.

It builds on a good success of a BMW M2 Coupé and takes its
sporty suggestion to a subsequent level. With an even some-more absolute engine, it
offers an unbeatable pushing knowledge in a class.

BMW M is all about exhilaration! Just expostulate one of a M cars and
you’ll immediately know because 2017 was once again a record year
for BMW M. Worldwide sales exceeded 80,000 for a initial time ever. In
China, BMW M achieved a 37% boost in sales – that’s because we doubled
a series of M dealerships here final year.

For me, this M2 Competition ideally embodies what a BMW brand
stands for: Sheer pushing pleasure and pristine emotion!

These overwhelming models – a i8 Roadster and a destiny i4 –
denote that e-mobility is rarely romantic as well. And there’s
many some-more to come, as a BMW Group will offer 25 electrified vehicles
by 2025. This underlines a passion to figure a destiny of mobility –
what we call idealist mobility.

That’s because business in China cruise BMW to be a many attractive
and innovative reward automobile brand. That creates us really proud. And you
can be certain that we will continue to do all to say that
clever appeal.
