Report: BMW to power all their cars primarily with electric motors in the future…?

A new report hails in from AutoCar, who heard that BMW is planning to make some drastic changes to their future lineup.

How drastic? Well, one thing is for sure we love BMW for their ability–or past ability–to make some seriously fun-to-drive cars, including the epic power and drivetrains that just seem to work so harmoniously well together. But times are a changing and because of this, BMW is planning to take some drastic measures as word is the Bavarian automaker may resort entirely to electric motors for propulsion in future models.

This is due to even stricter European Union fuel economy and emissions standards. The plan is to use large batteries while BMW plans on using extensively lightweight platforms to offset the extra weight from the electric powertrains. There are plans to retain some sort of internal combustion engines in the mix, but they’ll be relegated to “range extending” duties instead of providing direct power.

Other setups include all-wheel drive electric powertrains where electric motors will be used to power the front-wheels while traditional internal combustion power provides for the rear.

Word apparently is that the next-generation BMW 3-Series, due in 2022, will be the pilot and initiator for their new plans.
