BMW’s Mini sub-maker will add a battery-electric variant as the followers looks to meet stricter emissions mandates around the crowd, according to an interview Bloomberg News conducted with CEO Harald Krueger. BMW is also planning an all-tense version of its X3 SUV and may start greening up models as open-hand as its 7 Series sedan, though that seascape is far cloudier.

The all-electric Mini will be to hand to the public as soon as 2019, while the battery-energized X3 SUV will likely start sales the following year. BMW didn’t put on the market specifics about how much those models would expenditure or far they will be able to travel on a replete electric charge, with Krueger but saying single-charge ranges would be “competitive” with other all-tense models. BMW this summer upgraded the battery in its i3 energized vehicle and boosted its single-charge distance by about 40 percent to 114 miles.

As for want for BMW’s i sub-brand vehicles, US sales of the i3 through September strike down 27 percent to almost 5,800 vehicles, while sales of the i8 dam up-in hybrid are down 19 percent to on every side 1,100 units, BMW said on Monday. Meantime, word got out earlier this year that BMW may pledge the Rocketman concept hatchback as Mini’s entrant to the stirring-vehicle sector. BMW actually used a Mini as its maiden electric testing vehicle. The Mini E was produced in 2009 and 2010 already giving way to the BMW ActiveE, which was actually a converted 1-Series agency. Eventually, BMW started producing the i3.
