Zipse said during a press conference in New York.
As Reuters notes, Germany’s chief concern also emphasized that electricity also poses another threat. Zipse noted that the supply of raw materials for car batteries is mostly controlled by China, which is an additional threat.

Zipse said in the meeting.
It has long been known that the current head of BMW is not a big fan of fleet-wide electrification and has long criticized the ban on the sale of cars with internal combustion engines in Europe. According to him, apart from electric cars, there should also be cars with economical combustion engines, especially since the charging infrastructure is still in its infancy, and “electric” is more expensive than internal combustion versions.
