The reason for BMW's resignation could be electric cars; BMW, Harald Krueger, who resigned with a sudden decision recently, was among those who opposed the company's electric investments.
BMW's MINI brand recently introduced its first electric car to its customers. The new electric MINI's 35.000 dollar price and 235 kilometers range have been controversial.
4 Krueger, who has been BMW's manager for years, has completely changed the company's future plans. In addition, Krueger focused on the internal combustion engine at the beginning of the diesel bans in Europe, which led to lagging behind competing companies.
That's why the new MINI's features are said to be almost identical to that of the 4-year-old BMW İ3. The electric car, which can produce 185 horsepower, can complete the 0-100 km / h acceleration in just 7.3 seconds. This makes it even worse than the 2 year-old Chevrolet Bolt. No further details have been shared about the vehicle, which will have a long-distance version of the 270 kilometer. So much so that the standard model is only 10 kilometers more than the range of the experimental electric MINI, which was released almost a year ago.
BMW, which is among the first companies to take the trend of electric cars, seems to have changed pure together with Krueger. BMW manager Harald Krueger is thought to have resigned because he could not adopt this new trend in the growing electric car market.
