As a major automaker dedicated to sustainability, BMW set stricter emissions targets, with the goal of lowering CO2 emissions by 20 percent. This ambitious goal to protect the environment includes plans to continue the rollout hydrogen fuel-cell and battery-electric models while also investing in fuel cell research.
Recently, BMW CEO Oliver Zipse re-affirmed this commitment, “We remain firmly committed to the CO2 targets agreed within the European Union and to the introduction of the Euro 6d emissions standard. We simply cannot afford to rest on our laurels when it comes to protecting the environment.”
A third of the reduction will come through improvements to BMW’s drivetrain systems while the remainder of the plan would be through increasing the number of electrified vehicles produced. By 2025, BMW plans to invest $32 billion in research and development. By the end of 2021, the group will be able to offer customers a choice of five all-electric series vehicles.
