Carmakers have been pushing electric cars ever since European lawmakers in December 2018 ordered a cut in carbon dioxide emissions from cars by 37.5% by 2030 compared with 2021 levels. This will come after a 40% emissions cut between 2007 and 2021.

BMW said it will also offer a fully electric 5-series, but Chief Executive Oliver Zipse declined to give a launch date.
