Description

BMW has announced that their electric vehicle rollout plans is going more rapid than expected, and they are expected to offer 25 electrified vehicles already in 2023 — two years earlier than originally planned. A so-called eDrive Zones function will be standard on all BMW plug-in hybrids starting in 2020. This tech will force vehicles to shut off their internal combustion engines and rely solely on electric power in cities that establish emission-free "green zones" anywhere in the world. A pilot eDrive Zone is already in the works at the BMW's Electric City Drive, a pilot project between the German automaker, the City of Rotterdam and Erasmus University.
