BMW North America CEO Backpedals On Electric Car Remarks


BMW North America CEO Jim O'Donnell apparently made some "disparaging" remarks about electric vehicles, including his dislike for EV tax credits, and his belief that the battery range currently available makes them an unrealistic proposition for "at least 90 percent" of the population.

O'Donnell subsequently apologized for his remarks, and re-affirmed his commitment to BMW's EV program, stating "I want to stress I am 100% behind our company's plans to design, develop, lease and sell electric vehicles. We are confident we are on the right path with the range and flexibility of the all-new BMW ActiveE and the forthcoming BMW i3 (seen above)."

For our part, we think O'Donnell was being candid and perhaps a bit too honest, especially regarding the company he works for, but we are inclined to agree with his original statements, despite our enthusiasm for electric car technology.
