The BMW Group is committed to the 1.5-degree goal of the Paris Climate Agreement. Low-carbon mobility is an important part of this. The BMW Group therefore plans to electrify about half its vehicles by 2030.


BMW Group Plant Steyr is playing its part: From 2025, it will produce the next generation of e-drives, as well as all the core components: The rotor, stator, inverter, transmission and housing will all be manufactured in Steyr, then installed to produce over 600,000 electric motors per year.

The housing for the highly integrated drive unit already comes from Plant Steyr’s mechanical production.


Steyr is developing a new high-performance e-drive that will establish a new performance class. This new drive train will take BMW M vehicles, among others, to the highest levels of electric performance.

E-drives for high-volume, smaller vehicle series have been refined at the BMW Group development site in Steyr since 2020. Employees are also designing and developing heat management systems for cooling and heating all fully-electric BMW Group vehicles.
