The BMW Group has an extensive inhouse expertise in producing drivetrains. Our global production network supplies our vehicle plants with the drivetrain our customer wants — for electrified models as well as for models with a combustion engine. Electromobility is becoming more and more important. Sectional images Michael Nikolaides In 2020 the BMW Group started series production of its 5th generation e-drivetrain, which will be used in new BMW models like the BMW i4 and the BMW iX. By 2030 we expect at least 50% of our global vehicles to be delivered to our customers with an electrified drivetrain. In response to that, we are systematically expanding our production network for e-drivetrains. We are increasing capacities in existing locations and we are developing capabilities in others. We are growing our staff for the e-drive production almost exclusively through a transformation of personnel currently working in otherareas of the company. By doing that, we can get most of the expertise of our associates and offer attractive and future-proof jobs.

The heart of any electric vehicle is the e-drivetrain. Battery electric vehicles are fully electric. Partially electric vehicles, so-called plug-in hybrids, are also equipped with a combustion engine. Put in very simple terms, every electric vehicle has an e-motor and a high-voltage battery. For our high-voltage batteries, we start by assembling the battery cells into battery modules. We then mount these modules and connect them to the high-voltage batteries. For our fifth-generation e-drivetrains, the stator, rotor, housing, and transmission are all produced in-house by BMW. We then assemble these components along with the power electronics to make an electric drivetrain. We do all of this without using rare earths. The high-voltage battery stores the electric energy in the vehicle. The energy is then converted into motion by the e-motor. To do this, the mobile rotor rotates through dynamic magnetic fields in the stator. The finished components of the fifth-generation e-drivetrain, i.e., the high-voltage battery and e-motor, are then delivered to our vehicle production plants for installation, for example to Dingolfing for the iX or to Munich for the i4.
