BMW has said it plans to increase orders of electric vehicle battery cells by ‘at least’ 20 to 30% from its exclusive supplier Samsung SDI in 2016 from its 2014 level, Reuters has reported. South Korea’s Samsung SDI will not only increase its supply for BMW’s i3 and i8 electric cars but would start supply for its future hybrid models starting with the X5 plug-in hybrid, said BMW’s purchasing chief, Klaus Draeger. The German premium automaker sold 5,396 i3 cars in the first half of this year globally, compared with a total of 1.02 million vehicles it sold during the period.
