BMW Aims For 20% Of Its Vehicles To Go Electric By 2023
BMW’s chief executive Oliver Zipse recently put up an ambitious plan as he said the German carmaker is looking forward to converting 20% of its vehicles into electric cars by 2023.
German luxury carmaker BMW has put up an ambitious plan to be a truly global carmaker. It is now aiming for a 20% contribution to its overall car sales coming from electric cars in the next 3 years that is by 2023. The company is also planning to step up its production of electric vehicles. They are significantly planning on increasing the number of electric vehicles.
BMW aims of building a quarter of a million more electric cars than originally planned in the years between 2021 to 2023. This way BMW targets towards selling an electric engine in every fifth car it sells by 2023 compared to 8% now. However, this will largely depend on infrastructure and electric charging. For this operation, 15,000 private and about 1300 public charging points would have to be put into operation every week as of today.
Meanwhile, BMW has announced that it will replace its current 3 Series Gran Turismo with a brand new 3 Series Gran Limousine in India. India will be the first right-hand-drive market to get this model. The new Gran Limousine will launch on January 21, 2021. BMW will add this to its fleet in India and it will sit in between a regular 3 Series and the 5 Series. The BMW 3 Series ranges between Rs 42.3 lakh and Rs 49.3, ex-showroom. The new 3 Series Gran Limousine will sit above this price bracket and below the 5 Series. BMW will announce the official prices with the launch of Gran Limousine. The BMW Gran Limousine will compete against the like of Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Audi A4 facelift and Jaguar XE.
