  • BMW is developing an all-electric version of its 5 Series and 7 Series sedans as well as its entry-level X1 SUV, the company announced Monday as it detailed a renewed effort to reduce its overall emissions.
  • By then, the company estimates there will be more than 7 million “electrified” BMW Group vehicles (including ones from subsidiaries like Mini) on the road.
  • BMW claims it is also striving to create the “most sustainable supply chain industry wide” for its electric vehicles, including getting its new battery supplier to agree to only using “100 percent green power”.
