BMW wants quarter of sales in China to be EVs by 2025
BMW will have 12 electric models for sale in China by 2023
BMW is aiming for a quarter of its sales in China to be battery electric vehicles by 2025, its China chief Jochen Goller said.
Around 4 per cent of BMW sales were electric vehicles last year in China.
Goller who was speaking at the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show said BMW will have 12 electric models for sale in China by 2023.
The German automaker has said it expects half of its worldwide sales to be fully-electric models by 2030.
Goller added that BMW is looking into expanding its production in China but has not made a final decision.
What is your sentiment on BMW?
Issues at Huachen Group, parent of its main China joint venture partner Brilliance China Automotive, do not impact operations of the joint venture, he said.
BMW's joint venture with Great Wall Motor, which is building a factory in China, will start making two electric Mini models for the global market from 2023, Goller added.
