BMW

BMW has been a leader in electric cars. The brand was one of the first to bring an all-electric car to market in the form of the i3, in pure electric and range-extender form (although the range extender model was dropped when the NEDC economy and emissions test changed to WLTP), then came the petrol-electric plug-in i8 with its supercar looks. Over recent years BMW has had more plug-in models on sale than any other manufacturer. However BMW’s big electric news will be the forthcoming all-electric iX3 SUV (2021) and the all-electric i4, an electric 4 series Gran Coupe with an expected 373 mile electric range (2021).
