    “Emotional products and innovative technology are and will remain the backbone of our business success. Our rapidly growing range of all-electric vehicles with the BMW Operating System 8 impresses customers and experts alike — and is already a central driver of our sales today,” said BMW AG CEO Oliver Zipse.

    “From 2025, we will make the next big leap with the Neue Kasse: The Neue Kasse defines what the BMW Group stands for in the future. At the start, we are planning a compact sedan in the 3‑series segment and a sporty SUV. By the end of the decade, the Neue Kasse is expected to account for more than half of our sales,” Zipse added.
