By 2025, a quarter of BMW car sales to be pure electric


Luxury carmaker BMW aims to increase the share of pure electric vehicles of its total sales to 25 percent by 2025, BMW board member Klaus Fröhlich told Focus magazine. “That is more than half a million vehicles,”  he said. He added that his company will be able to offer a pure electric version in every one of its model classes by 2021. He also said batteries’ increasing energy density will render the “German hype” about e-car ranges obsolete.
