Well then they got their asses kicked on the first leg of the marathon by an upstart and by multiples - and their CEO's electric strategy got him fired (not to mention his margin failure).

... and given their Dir of Dev Klaus Fröhlich doesn't think customers want BEVs (he's right in that customers don't want BMW BEVs), I'm guessing it won't be long until Zipse tells him he's out too. Keep an eye out for that headline!

Further, look for BMW to pull back on carbon fiber in their future BEVs (ref margin point)
