BMW To Electrify Its Entire Lineup | 10/02/13
by Zachary Shahan
There have been some chuckles about the BMW i3, but it seems clear that BMW is actually quite serious about the assertions that electric vehicles are the future, and that it is enthusiastically jumping into that future.
BMW has actually now stated that it intends to make plug-in hybrid electric versions of every single car it builds.
What held BMW up until now? Battery pack issues, according to BMW’s head of production line for large vehicles, Peter Wolf. But, with those apparently out of the way, they ”are planning to have a plug-in hybrid [vehicle] in each and every model series.”
