BMW is dramatically increasing its electric car offering, with the new i5 and i7 sedans headlining an expanded nine-model line-up that will support its ambitious 10-year development plan.
Upcoming Electric Car Releases
The German manufacturer will launch a new car as part of its new ‘Power of Choice’ sustainability plan, which has pledged to sell more than seven million hybrid and pure electric vehicles by the end of 2030.

The new plan, which will also include two electric cars from the Mini brand, is the first major initiative overseen by Oliver Zipse since he was promoted to the top of the Munich company last summer.
It is designed to make BMW the leader in electric vehicle sales against rival premium brands such as Audi, Jaguar, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz and Tesla, and help meet increasingly tough targets for reducing CO2 emissions of new models.
To date, the BMW Group has sold more than 500,000 electric models under the BMW and Mini brands, but expects that number to double by the end of 2021 as new electric and plug-in hybrid models are launched.
It has also increased production of electric vehicles produced by joint ventures such as Spotlight Automotive, a business recently established by Mini and Great Wall Motors in China.

BMW expects to sell 4.6 million electric vehicles over the next 10 years – an average of 460,000 a year and a big increase from the 42,249 sold last year (all i3s). It also expects to sell 2.4 million plug-in hybrids. To that end, it recently launched the six-cylinder petrol-electric 545e xDrive, which is aimed at the fleet market and is the fifth electric model in the 5 Series.
Having already committed to offering a plug-in hybrid variant for every model in its range, BMW’s new plans call for an increase in all-electric models, which will initially include at least nine new models. These include the recently announced iX3, to be followed next year by the i4 five-door coupe and the production version of the iNext SUV (likely to be called the iX5).
BMW has also confirmed an electric version of the X1 small SUV, badged iX1, which will not directly replace the BMW i3, plus the new i5 and i7, based on the next-generation 5 Series and 7 Series saloons respectively.
The automaker is also set to launch an electric version of the latest 3 Series sedan, using the same gear from the upcoming i4, according to sources familiar with the production plan. With the i3 hatchback now out of production, it’s possible the 3 Series-based saloon will adopt the empty i3 moniker, according to the source.

While plans for the Mini are less definite, it can be confirmed that the British brand plans to build on the recently unveiled Electric three-door hatchback with at least two new electric cars, including a unique SUV style based on the iX1 and iX3.
The foundations for BMW’s ambitious strategy were laid with the establishment of the i electric vehicle division in 2011. However, while BMW’s initial electric vehicle plans focused on a dedicated platform, the second wave of electric models has been structured around the current FAAR and CLAR of the architecture firm. .
The ‘Power of Choice’ model scheme calls for up to four different engine variants – petrol, diesel, plug-in hybrid and pure electric – in every major model series to be built on the same production line, starting with BMW. X3.
BMW says it will continue to offer petrol and diesel engines in every major model range for the foreseeable future, aiming to provide buyers with what the company describes as “the most suitable powertrain for a given usage scenario”.

In a previously announced strategy driven by new developments in China, BMW also confirmed that it will begin offering hydrogen fuel cell electric powertrains on a full leasing program in certain models and markets, starting with the X5 next year.
BMW’s only production electric car to date is the i3. But while it’s an EV on demand, the company has now committed to offering an electric version of the existing model next year, starting with the iX3 in 2021. Here are all the cars — some confirmed, some not — that are in development.
BMW i1: Electric extension to the new 1 Series. Like its sister model, the iX1 crossover, it will be based on the FAAR platform. The main competitors will include the Volkswagen ID 3.
BMW iX1: The iX1 is based on the third-generation X1 small SUV, due in 2022, and is described by BMW experts as an indirect replacement for the original i3, with a raised seating position and relatively compact dimensions.

BMW i3: The new i3, while not yet confirmed, will be based on the i4 fastback but will take styling cues from the 3 Series saloon. Insiders are not ruling out the possibility of a 3 Series Touring estate.
BMW iX3: Scheduled to go on sale in the UK in 2021, this rear-wheel-drive SUV is based on the current X3. It is the first to use BMW’s fifth-generation electric drive system and the new battery technology that other BMW EVs will adopt.

BMW i5: The eighth generation of the 5 Series, due in 2023, will produce an electric model. The i5 will initially be a saloon, but an estate version may also be offered in some markets. Competitors will include production versions of the Volkswagen ID Vizzion and the Mercedes-Benz EQE.

New Quad Motor Electric Ferrari Supercar On The Way

Sony and Honda’s mobility joint venture unveiled a new EV prototype called Afeela during Sony’s CES presentation in Las Vegas on Wednesday. The brand will appear on the joint venture’s first production electric car, which will go on sale in North America in 2026.
Much is still unknown about the new brand, but Sony Honda Mobility CEO Yasuhide Mizuno says the car will use Sony’s expertise in artificial intelligence, entertainment, virtual reality and augmented reality to present a unique EV.
“Afeela represents our idea of an interactive relationship where people feel the sensation of interactive mobility and where mobility can detect and understand people and society using sensors and AI technology,” said Mizuno.

More than 40 sensors, including cameras, radar, ultrasound and lidar, will be installed on the exterior of the vehicle, increasing its ability to detect objects and drive automatically. According to Mizuno, Afeela will try to incorporate three main themes, namely autonomy, augmentation and affinity.
The prototype unveiled on stage looks exactly like the concept Sony first unveiled at CES three years ago. Instead, it’s a sedan with a front light bar, a closed grille and a tall black roof. Black caps and light accents above the wheel wells are some of the more interesting exterior features. Some observers commented that the Afeela prototype looked like a mashup between the Porsche 911 and the Lucid Air.
The new EV will be priced competitively with other premium automakers such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Volvo and Audi. Sony has said it expects the software to offer a subscription service, so vehicle owners must pay a monthly fee to access certain features.
It was three years ago when Sony surprised CES attendees by unveiling a sleek concept sedan called the Vision-S. With a pillar-to-pillar infotainment display and an emphasis on music and entertainment (what else?), the Vision-S is supposed to show what it would look like if Sony actually built the car. Which ensures that not everyone has
