BMW sees annual output of 100,000 units for its ‘i’ electric range

MUNICH — BMW may build more than 100,000 units a year of its ‘i’ range of battery-powered cars by 2020 to help meet tougher CO2 emissions regulations.

BMW CEO Norbert Reithofer said the automaker will ramp up production of ‘i’ models by 2018, then by 2020 “we will be forced to build them in a six digits figure to comply with stricter emission rules.”

He was speaking during a presentation of the company financial results here on Wednesday.

BMW aims to cut average CO2 emissions of the vehicles it sells in Europe to 105 grams per km by 2020 from 133g/km last year. That would be half of the 1995 level of 210g/km.
