“Making charging even easier and more convenient”
As an e-mobility pioneer, the BMW Group has been closely involved with charging of electric vehicles and the necessary infrastructure for more than a decade. The path to e-mobility success leads through the charging station – which is why charging infrastructure is a management priority for the BMW Group. We talked to three Board of Management members, Ilka Horstmeier (responsible for Human Resources and Labour Relations), Pieter Nota (responsible for Customer, Brands and Sales) and Dr Nicolas Peter (responsible for Finance), about how the BMW Group is approaching the issue of charging, where the advantages and potential lie, and what role charging should play in the continuing ramp-up of electromobility.
