On August 1, BMW announced the entry-level electric BMW i4 eDrive35 as the third variant of its i4 range, joining the BMW i4 eDrive40 and BMW i4 M50.
U.S. deliveries will start in Q1 2023 with a starting base price of USD 51,400, plus USD 995 destination and handling.
Production of the 2023 BMW i4 eDrive35 will begin in the fourth quarter of 2022 at BMW Group Plant Munich.
The BMW i4 eDrive35 is driven by the same Gen5 eDrive powertrain technology found in the BMW iX and the other i4 models.
In the i4 eDrive35, the single electrically-excited synchronous motor is fed by high-voltage batteries with an energy content of 70.2 kWh gross and 66 kWh net that are expected to deliver an EPA range of 260 miles.
The motor sends 281 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels, resulting in an estimated 0-60 mph time of just 5.8 seconds.
Selling over 57,000 EVs worldwide in the first half of 2022, BMW s is aiming for BEVs to account for 50% of global sales by 2030.

On August 4, in Shenyang, Liaoning Province, BMW Group and HBIS Group Co., Ltd. (HBIS) signed an MoU (memorandum of understanding) to co-build a green and low-carbon automotive steel supply chain.
Under the MoU, BMW will use HBIS' low-carbon steel on mass-produced vehicle models manufactured at its Shenyang production plant starting mid-2023. Carbon-dioxide emissions will be decreased about 10% to 30% during the production process of HBIS' auto-dedicated low-carbon steel compared to that of traditional steel materials.
From 2026 onwards, BMW's Shenyang factory will utilize HBIS' automotive "green" steel in vehicle volume production. The "green" steel is made by virtue of green power, electric furnace, and other techniques and facilities, targeting reduction of around 95% carbon-dioxide emissions. Based on the present procurement plan, BMW expects to decrease roughly 230,000 tons of carbon-dioxide emissions annually in the supply chain from 2026.

On August 3, the BMW Group announced 2022 Q2 financial results. Sales revenue increased by 21.6% to EUR 34.77 billion and the profit before financial result (EBIT) was down 31.5% to EUR 3.4 billion. The Group’s earnings after tax decreased 36.4% to EUR 3.0 billion.
Group sales volume (including MINI and Rolls Royce) in Q2 were down 19.8% year-on-year at 563,187 vehicles.
Regarding the 2022 H1 financial results, sales revenue increased by 19.1% to EUR 65.9 billion and the profit before financial result (EBIT) was down 15.1% to EUR 6.8 billion. The Group’s earnings after tax increased 73.6% to EUR 13.2 billion.
The group sales volume in H1 was down 13.4% year-on-year at 1,160,094 vehicles.
The BMW Group expects business conditions to remain difficult in the second half of 2022. The ongoing supply bottlenecks, particularly for semiconductors, the war in Ukraine and interruptions in supply chains have led to a decline in deliveries in the Automotive segment in the first half of the year. Although the company expects sales volumes in the second half of the year to be solidly higher than in the same period of the previous year, this will not fully compensate for lost volume in H1 2022.
As a consequence, deliveries for the full year 2022 are expected to be slightly below previous year.
In the automotive segment, the EBIT margin for 2022 is forecast to be within the range of 7 to 9%, as before.
