The BMW Group has announced that it aims to deliver 2025 million fully electric cars to its customers by the end of 2. By 2030, the group expects half of its global sales to be purely electric vehicles.
Depending on the rapid development of the charging infrastructure, which has a critical role in the preference of fully electric cars, and how the problems experienced in the supply of raw materials are shaped, BMW Group also stated that it will reach the sales of more than 2030 million fully electric cars annually by 1,5.
Neue Klasse to Change Electric Car Production Paradigm
With the new technologies to be developed, the BMW Group, which plans to move to the third stage in the electricity conversion in 2025, will start to produce the Neue Klasse on its newest platform. Neue Klasse, which will launch at the new lean, green and digital BMW iFactory in Hungary in 2025, will offer superior performance at lower costs with its 6th generation powertrain. The financial efficiency that Neue Klasse will create will also reduce the cost of owning fully electric cars.
Investments in E-Mobility and Digitalization Increased
The BMW Group's 2021 financial results also drew attention with the increase in R&D expenditures devoted to electric mobility and digitalization, which are the future of the automotive industry. Spending on the development of new car platforms, autonomous driving and electric car technologies reached 2020 billion euros, an increase of 10.7 percent compared to the total cost in 6.29. Investments in this area are expected to increase in the coming periods.
New Partnerships in Autonomous Driving and Battery Technologies
The BMW Group continues to cooperate with the best technology companies in all regions of the world within the framework of Catena-X. Emission limits, which change the balance in the automotive industry, are rapidly increasing the demand for electric car production. The increase in the demand for electric mobility in parallel with the new regulations causes problems in the supply of components such as batteries, which form the heart of electric cars. The BMW Group is partnering with solid battery manufacturer Solid Power to avoid problems in this area.
In the field of autonomous driving technologies, the BMW Group engages in long-term cooperation with Qualcomm Technologies and Arriver to develop new software. With this partnership, the group plans to launch the New Car Assessment Program Level 2 and Level 2+ Driver Assistance Systems. In addition, with these collaborations, the group will also develop industry-leading software functions for autonomous driving up to Level 3 High Automated Driving technologies.
