Peter also shared that compared to last year BMW's global sales will be slightly less due to the losses the brand faced in the first half. However, next year the company aims to make “another big leap" in purely electric vehicles, he added in a report by Bloomberg report.

BMW has been focusing on expanding its product range in its electric vehicle segment as the luxury automaker introduced the BMW i3 in China, BMW iX1 and the much-awaited luxury sedan, the BMW i7. Next year is going to be significant for the brand as it is gearing up to bring the BMW i5, the all-electric MINI Countryman and the all-battery-electric Rolls-Royce Spectre.
