BMW Board Member: EV Driving Range To Double Within 5 Years

Editor’s Note: BMW has been a little late to the electric car game. Or maybe it’s coming in right on time. One might think BMW isn’t that bullish on electric cars since its first electric car, the BMW i3, is yet to be released (it’s coming on July 29). However, at least one BMW board member is confident that EV driving range is going to double within the next five years. That would be a game-changer within the automobile industry. Here’s more from EV Obsession:

Recently, at a conference in Paris, BMW board member Ian Robertson made a claim that, within 5 years, EVs would double their single-charge driving range.

This statement came alongside the soon to be released BMW i3 EV. While some feel this claim was just to get publicity for the upcoming i3 release, others are not so sure.

If this advancement would happen within 5 years, that would give a typical EV a range of 150 –200 miles from a single charge. This would definitely be a game changer for the EV market. Having an extended driving range has already shown to have a huge impact on EV sales. For example, part of Tesla’s success can be attributed to the Model S and its EPA estimated 265-mile single-charge range
