BMW (BMWG.DE) will stop making internal combustion engine (ICE) cars at its main plant in Munich in three to four years.
The ICE cars currently made in Munich will be produced in BMW’s factories in Austria and the UK in future. By next year at least half the vehicles produced in Munich would be electric.
BMW has set itself a target for at least 50% of new global car sales to be electric by 2030. The company would be ready with an all-electric offering if any market banned ICEs by then. The i4 battery-electric car is made on a joint assembly line with ICE and hybrid models such as the BMW 3 Series Sedan and Touring.
