As part of the Group's Number ONE strategy, the company will begin extensive
tests on electric drives in MINI vehicles.

Munich. Over the next months, the BMW Group will be carrying out various series
of tests on electrically powered vehicles to determine the alternative drive of
the future. Several hundred MINI brand vehicles are being prepared for this.
The cars, built in the Oxford plant, will be modified accordingly in Munich and
fitted out for trials.

"This step will allow the BMW Group to gain an initial knowledge of how
mobility can be achieved efficiently using purely electrically powered
vehicles. Our task here is to combine the ultimate driving experience with an
efficient electrified drive with practically no emissions", underlined Dr.
Norbert Reithofer, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG.

The tests on alternative drives in a MINI body will be used over the next 12-18
months to refine the technology. Details about the drive concept and its
marketing will be published towards the end of the year.
