That being said, last month, BMW India launched the iX all-electric SUV in India, and you can read about it by clicking here. BMW India will soon introduce the i4 all-electric Gran Coupe as well.
BMW also confirms that Mini Electric is the Mini family’s highest-volume model, which will soon be launched in India, mostly by the end of Q1 2022.
Mini and Rolls-Royce are all set to be all-electric brands by 2030, So expect the brand to aggressively launch more electrified products in India in the coming years. There are fun times ahead as Mercedes-Benz India has also announced that the EQS will be assembled in India. So expect a strong rivalry between the Mercedes-Benz EQS and the upcoming all-electric BMW 7-series which will break cover next year.
