Shanghai (Gasgoo)- The year of 2020 is themed “new energy vehicle” and “branding” by BMW Group as the German premium carmaker is to roll out many NEV models in China and quite a few new models from a same series by the end of 2020.
Last year, the BMW Group delivered a total of 723,680 BMW and MINI vehicles to customers in China, a 13.1% increase compared with the previous year, the automaker announced at a conference held on January 14. This was the company's best-ever sales result in the country since entering the market in 1994. As an e-mobility pioneer, it has already delivered the 50,000th electrified vehicles there as of December 2019.
BMW Group pointed out it plans to roll out 17 new models in China, of which the all-new BMW X5 M and X6 M are set to hit the market in the middle of the year. Other fuel-burning models include the all-new BMW M5 and the all-new M8 four-door coupe. The concentration on the “M” products is the motive on which the annual theme “branding” is based.
Three NEV models are scheduled to go on sale in the first quarter, namely, the BMW 5 Series PHEV with longer EV-only range, the all-new X5 PHEV and a limited edition of the BMW i8. The all-new iX3 all-electric SUV will be produced and hit the market by 2020.
