Like most car companies, BMW has been dabbling in electric vehicles lately, with models like the all-electric Mini and a longer-ranged version of its electric i3 model. The car company has to keep up with its competitors, like Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz and Tesla, so it's launching a low-slung, four-door sedan into to the BMW "i" series. According to Bloomberg, the four-door EV is planned for sale by 2021 and will take a spot in between the city-styled i3 and the i8 sports car. There are no details on a specific model name, as yet, however.
As reported by Bloomberg, BMW plans to offer 12 fully electric vehicles by 2025, including the X3 SUV and self-driving iNext. The auto company has hopes to see ranges of 700 kilometers/425 miles by that time, as well, making all-electric cars more attractive to consumers. We've reached out to BMW for comment on this matter and will update the post when we hear back.
