BMW refuses to give up – "hydrogen is still important"

In future, only electric cars will be built at BMW's factory in Munich. It just doesn't make the Germans rule out other technologies.

BMW will probably only build electric cars in the future. At least at the factory in Munich. But the current for these electric cars can be made in different ways.

And BMW sticks to that. That is why the brand is also continuing the development of its hydrogen program, which is currently being tested in the iX5 prototype.

That's what Top Gear writes.

– Hydrogen remains an important alternative. That is why we are testing a fleet of hydrogen cars at the moment. And we work intensively to further improve the technology.

– Alternatives must be considered. This is why we keep our facilities flexible in relation to hydrogen and other technologies.

– We will not invest in internal combustion technology if there are no new internal combustion engines. But it is decisive that we remain flexible on the production line, regardless of what may happen (within the development, ed.), says BMW board member Milan Nedeljković in an interview to the media.

BMW are not the only ones who refuse to write off the hydrogen car as a possibility on the roads of the future. Toyota, which collaborates with BMW on the Z4/Supra model, is not ready to give up on the electric car either.

The head of Toyota's tuner division, Gazoo Racing, Masahito Watanabe, is even ready to go one step further. The Japanese believe that it is possible to burn hydrogen, and thus stick to the fossil car. Read more about it here .
