Inside the headquarters of BMW’s new luxury electric car, the i3, is a dream world of red brick and white marble.
But if you were expecting to be greeted by a grand staircase leading up to the roof of the building, you will be disappointed.
Instead, you are greeted with a small courtyard with a white wooden wall separating it from the street, where the company is located in the southern town of Bremen.
The i3 is BMW’s first electric vehicle and the first of its kind in Europe.
The first car to have an all-electric range, the BMW i3 has a range of 240 miles and can travel for 300km.
The range will not be enough for a leisurely drive to a swimming pool or for a dinner in the evening.
But the range does offer the chance to see the BMW range at work, such as the BMW R-Spec, which is capable of driving over 200km.
“If you have the opportunity to drive around the world and get an experience of a luxury car, it’s something that you will enjoy,” said Johan Venter, head of electric vehicle marketing at BMW.
“We’re very proud to say that we’ve made an electric car that can drive across the world.
This car is the first in Europe to have this capability.”
The BMW i5, which has a new powertrain, will be released later this year and is due to be launched in 2020.
This year marks the centenary of the BMW factory in Germany and will mark the company’s first year in the UK.
BMW has been developing electric cars since the 1960s, building up its fleet of plug-in electric cars.
In 2017, the company announced that it had bought the electric vehicle business of German-based electric carmaker Bosch and the company has also developed an electric vehicle technology called Electric Drive, which was recently acquired by Bosch.
The company has plans to roll out an electric range of up to 350 miles on its own electric vehicles, which it hopes will be a key factor in attracting a new customer.
“There’s a lot of interest in electric vehicles and the demand is there,” said Jürgen Krüger, a research director at IHS Automotive.
“I think it will drive demand in the coming years.
BMW is trying to make sure it has a high-quality product and that it has the resources to build a high quality electric car.”
In the future, BMW is also planning to develop a range that is 300 miles or more, which would make the i5 the company to beat in the electric car market.
The BMW x5 will be introduced in 2020, and the i8 will be launched later that year.
“With the development of electric vehicles in the last five years, it is clear that BMW is ready to enter the market and make the electric drive a reality,” said Krügers.
“That’s a great achievement.
The new x5 is an ambitious project with a great future.”
In 2017 BMW also announced that its electric cars would be able to drive over 200 miles on the road, which will be enough to get around in a country like Norway, a country where the average person lives for just 15 minutes.
But a range more than 200 miles is still not enough for those looking for a long-distance drive, and BMW has announced plans to introduce a range between 250 to 300 miles for the i7 and i9 electric cars, with a range beyond 300 miles to be unveiled in 2020 and the introduction of the i10 electric car in 2021.
In Germany, the electric vehicles market has also been growing.
By 2021, the country is expected to have more than 10,000 electric cars on the roads, and more than 100 of them are expected to be on the streets by 2020.
