All-Electric BMW Coming to the States in 2012

March 17, 2008

MUNICH, GERMANY – BMW indicated that the United States may be receiving an all-electric BMW by 2012. It’s unclear exactly what sort of size (or price) this new BMW will be, according to the Web site www.mobilemag.com.

BMW also has not said whether this all-electric vehicle will even be manufactured on its own. They are considering the possibility of having the work outsourced to a major U.S. automaker. This isn’t the first time that BMW has partnered with a domestic automaker.

Norbert Reithofer, BMW CEO, said that they will likely “make a battery-powered ecologically compatible car for the U.S. market” with a target launch date of 2012, according to www.mobilemag.com. Nissan also has an all-electric in development for the same time period.
