BMW may make its Mini brand all-electric in the United States and is talking with other automakers to find partners to lower the cost of electrifying the brand, a senior executive said. BMW plans to launch an electric Mini in 2019.
BMW will offer 12 full-electric vehicles by 2025, including a low-slung sedan to be unveiled at the Frankfurt auto show next week, as the automaker accelerates the rollout of battery-powered vehicles. CEO Harald Krueger said the EVs will have a range of up to 435 miles.
The Texas ports of Galveston and Freeport reopened Thursday and will receive their first vehicle carriers since shutting down six days ago because of Hurricane Harvey. A handful of vessels were forced to hold offshore during the storm, logistics officials say.
