BMW 30e, 40e, 50e: batteries for up to 700 km range

The electrification of a large part of the BMW model range, flexible solutions in the area of the battery and the drive requires, is obvious. If, in the future, almost all of the models from the BMW X1 to the BMW 7-series not only as a Plug-in Hybrid, but, in many cases, as the electric car will be available to cover a unit of solution will never suit all needs. Automotive News Europe now wants concrete Numbers have experienced and reports that the BMW electric cars in essence, on three different battery packages.
