BMW 5 Series Electric For China

Following BMW’s announcement of a 5 Series hybrid shown at last year’s Geneva Motor Show, the company has plans of developing a Electric Vehicle counterpart specifically for the Chinese marketplace. Expected to be unveiled at a major motor show in China later this year, The BMW 5 Series EV will be built in partnership with Brilliance China Automotive. Unlike the rest of the world where automobile manufacturers deliver EV technology on entry-level models, the Chinese marketplace is demanding roomier cars but with added EV technology to help lose the nation’s dependency of foreign oil. With BMW’s 87% growth increase in China for 2010, BMW is more than willing to produce a car specifically for the Chinese market. Link
