since it's an experimental car, I am going to wait for the real electric 5 series and see its weight
I am pretty sure it will weigh much less

And more than half of the models will be BEVs - so 13 at least BEVs in the BMW Group portfolio by the end of 2023. Currently there's just one: the BMW i3. MINI SE on the way in 2019, iX3 in 2020, iNext and i4 in 2021. So at least another 8 BEV models then in the next 2 years - in 2022 and 2023. That's BEV galore!
I bet you they will count each varuant as its own model to get to that count.
I3, i3s, iX3 40, iX3 60, etc...

That is unlikely given that the i3 and i3s are not counted as separate models today:

BMW Group sales of electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles decreased 22.6 percent in June 2019 vs. June 2018. Model changeover has limited the current BMW Group electrified lineup to five models including the BMW i3, BMW i8 and i8 Roadster, BMW 530e, and MINI Countryman plug-in hybrid electric vehicle.
It is important to keep in mind that BMW is tooling factories and refining their supply chain to allow for electric drive in any vehicle in the coming decade. Just as there are PHEV models across the lineup today (aforementioned lull in US availability notwithstanding), there may very well be BEV models across the lineup in relatively short order (2021-2023).
