E-MOBILITY.The innovative electric cars und plug-in hybrids of BMW.


We’ve been making electric cars for over four decades. When we adopted sustainability and the environment as our focus, we created a production chain that helped us become the largest supplier of electric cars in Europe. Right now, on roads all over the world, there are over 320,000 rechargeable BMW cars in use.

It’s easy to see that driving green is the “new black”. But, keeping track of the differences among rechargeable car brands and models, while figuring out which one fits you best, can be quite a challenge. That is why we are presenting all you need to know about electric cars, along with an overview of our entire electric car range. You will also find a summary of our extensive environmental and sustainability work, all aimed at creating a greener fleet of vehicles.
