German auto titan, BMW has formally declared that it is rushing up the plan to power its model range. The automaker basically stated that it would have 25 electrified vehicles on the road in 2025. Now BMW says it can do all that by 2023.

“By 2021, we will have doubled our sales of electrified vehicles compared with 2019,” said Harald Krüger, chairman of the board of management of BMW AG, in Munich on Tuesday. “We will offer 25 electrified vehicles already in 2023—two years earlier than originally planned. We expect to see a steep growth curve towards 2025: Sales of our electrified vehicles should increase by an average of 30 per cent every year.”

“It’s very simple for me: We have this flexible architecture,” Fröhlich said during a roundtable discussion on Tuesday. BMW builds its own electrical components and doesn’t have to rely heavily on the supply chain to make vehicle updates.

While BMW’s been betting heavily on hybrids, it has twelve EVs on tap to appear by 2023. At its event this week, it showed off an electrified M variant concept. The chances of that car showing up in showrooms are murky if BMW really does keep its promise, but if it does make it to production it’ll be joined by quite a few vehicles with some sort of electrification.
