BMW’s EV models produced in China may become targets of EU investigation

The European Union announced a countervailing investigation into Chinese electric vehicles last month. The relevant news “sparked a thousand waves with one stone” and caused great controversy among people from all walks of life. Bloomberg claimed in a report on Friday that BMW received an “information request” from the European Union about its all-electric model iX3, which will be part of the EU’s investigation into subsidies to Chinese electric car manufacturers.

According to reports, BMW is filling out a questionnaire recently. Chief Financial Officer Walter Mertl told reporters on the phone on Friday that BMW must complete the investigation within a week and provide the EU with detailed information on investment and production capacity of electric vehicles exported from China.

This also means that the EU is not only trying to collect data from independent brands such as BYD, NIO, and SAIC that export to Europe, but also hopes to obtain data from foreign brands produced in China, including Tesla models exported from China.

The investigation “could reshape competitive dynamics in Europe”, with BMW reportedly exporting 15,000-20,000 iX3 models from China last year. Walter Mertl bluntly said, “This will affect all international car manufacturers doing business in China.”

Note: BMW iX3 is BMW’s first pure electric SUV model. It made its world premiere in July 2020 and was put into production at the Shenyang factory in China. The car has a maximum output power of 210kW, a peak torque of 400N·m, and an acceleration time of 6.8 seconds from zero to zero. The car currently offers two driving ranges of 535km and 550km. The maximum DC charging power is 100kW, and it takes 45 minutes to quickly charge the battery from 0-80%. The maximum power of the home charging pile is 11kW, and it takes 7.5 hours to fully charge.

In addition, BMW also plans to start producing pure electric MINI Cooper models in China from next year. The car is produced together with its Chinese partner Great Wall Motors. The new car will also be exported to the European market.
