Based on current plans, by 2025, “the group will have 25 electrified models, half of which will be all electrified models”, BMW Group Latin America further explained.
Following that, the company will enter the third stage of transition, in which it will fully restructure its IT and software architecture, as well as launch a new generation of electric drive systems and high-capacity batteries.
