Today, German automaker BMW announced that the upcoming battery-electric MINI will be a variant of the brand’s core 3 door model. The all-electric car will launch in 2019.
By 2025, BMW expects electrified vehicles – depending on regulation, incentives and charging infrastructure – to account for between 15-25% of overall sales.
The new all-electric MIN will be joined by a BMW i8 Roadster in 2018, and a pure-electric X3 starting in 2020. The next-gen all-electric BMW iNEXT is due in 2021.
Today, BMW offers nine electrified models. These range from the fully electric BMW i3 to the company’s newest electrified model, the MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4*, a plug-in hybrid version of the MINI Countryman. This year, the company wants to sell 100,000 electrified vehicles.
