As electric vehicles become extremely popular over last couple of years, major automobile manufacturers are joining the revolution as they continue to expand their infrastructures to bring more EVs in future. While BMW is well-known for making some of the best combustion-engine powered sportscars on the market, the company has recently partnered with several other manufacturers to bring more electric cars throughout next couple of years. And now, the company has revealed that it will bring 25 electric vehicles by 2023.
This is far from the first time we have heard about BMW’s development of electric vehicles. Over the years, the automobile manufacturer emphasized its goal to bring 25 electric vehicles by 2025. However, it seems that the company has decided to put more emphasis on the development of electric cars as it revised the timeline by two years.
In his appearance in a roundtable discussion on Tuesday, CTO Klaus Fröhlich said (via Engadget ) that the company isn’t particularly concerned about the upcoming transition to electrification. He said that BMW has a flexible architecture and given that the company builds its own components, it won’t have to rely on other manufacturers.
Moreover, BMW’s modular approach means the company can use same chassis for different vehicles according to need. Despite its fully independent nature, BMW recently partnered with Jaguar Land Rover to accelerate the process of electrifying vehicles. As a result, it wouldn’t be extremely shocking if BMW can manage to meet its expectations to bring 25 electric vehicles by the end of 2023.
