BMW Group plans to release 25 electrified models across both ranges by 2025

BMW Group says that the plan will see 12 fully electric models introduced across the two model ranges.

The move will see the expansion of BMW’s ‘i’ brand of electrified cars, which includes the i3 city car – available in fully electric or range extender forms – and the i8 hybrid sports car.

A new concept dubbed i Vision Dynamics was revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show and is said to preview a four-door saloon that will sit between the i3 and i8, likely called i5.

The concept has a range of 373 miles, a top speed of 120mph and can go from 0-60mph in four seconds.

Mini will also see an expansion of its hybrid offerings, while a fully electric model will be introduced for the first time in 2019.

Harald Krüger, chairman of the board of management at BMW, said: “We have more electrified vehicles on the road than any established competitor and are committed to expanding our activities in the field of electric mobility as part of our Number One > Next strategy.

“We are therefore electrifying the heart of the BMW brand and, at the same time, elevating BMW i into a totally new dimension.”
