Like many other automakers, BMW is preparing an electric product onslaught sooner rather than later. Originally, the plan was to launch as many as 25 electrified models, including 12 new EVs, by 2025, but increased competition has prompted BMW to change its strategy and aim to achieve this goal by 2023.

BMW has already teased the i4 and iX3 fully electric models, and a recent report claimed the 5 Series will also get a fully electric variant in the future.

Now, BMWBlog claims BMW will also offer a fully electric 7 Series for the first time when the next-generation model arrives. Currently known as the i7, the new electric limo is based on the fifth-generation platform allowing for both internal combustion engines and EVs.

    This push is true, as you say, and it affects every aspect of the auto industry, up to and including, the whole of commerce. Interesting to see that competition is amping up the time schedule; two different fully electric models with a third to follow. The hybrid fourth may be something spectacular for both design, and the planet. https://www.atlantagreatermetrolimousine.com/
