The electric BMW 3 Series will be sold alongside other new battery electric vehicles and internal combustion engine-powered models. The German car manufacturer aims to become an all-electric car brand and it also plans to introduce carbon-neutrality across its manufacturing process.

The future BMW electric cars have been previewed by several concept cars by the automaker. One such model is the i Vision Circular concept. BMW showcased this concept previewing how sustainable materials can be used in vehicle manufacturing. 

BMW 3 Series is one of the bestselling models from the brand around the world. Introducing an all-electric 3-Series is expected to help the car brand to enhance its market share in the global EV space.

Speaking about the Neue Klasse platform, it will ultimately replace current FAAR and CLAR architectures. It would provide a uniform base for the BMW models to scale up manufacturing flexibility. As BMW claims, the Neue Klasse will usher in a new phase of operations for the brand. This architecture is claimed to offer the German company the flexibility to build electric cars from a 2 Series sized sedan to an X7 sized SUV.
