Arndt head of automotive research at today analyzed BMW’s electrification program, on Bloomberg

BMW’s stock fell as as 4.8 percent today to 79.56 as the company forecast weaker in the fourth quarter due to investments in new including the i3 electric car. unfortunate that an investment in cars is bearing the burden of the stock price, but on a broader it signals the important of the electric brand for BMW.

BMW’s represents a much-needed infusion of new into the EV spaceas we approach the anniversary of the introduction of the Nissan and Chevy Volt. The EV story so far has dominated by American and Japanese Don’t look now, but it the Europeansled by BMW, with not too far behindare about to start waves.

The introduction of the i3 and VW e-Golf could be the stories of 2014. Earlier Arndt Ellinghorst, head of research at ISI, shared insights into BMW’s electrification programand the positioning of carmakers in the plug-in car marketin an with Guy Johnson of Bloomberg “The Pulse .”

I the key parts of the interview below. are two things that jump out to of which, according to Ellinghorst, an advantage (and challenges) for in terms of EVs. First, BMW is a big bet on the i brand because it wants to get on meeting strict European regulations. And second, Ellinghorst that European carmakers better manufacturing when it to things like integrating and drivetrains.

Meanwhile, the major challenge is an German mindset focused on combustion.

Analyst: A Huge Bet

Guy You could always argue looking at the investment that BMW is now into electric vehicles, it is putting its A Team into space. It’s certainly a lot of money.

Arndt Ellinghorst: Yes, are spending more than a euros on the i brand. They have the most revolutionary to electric mobility out of the traditional They are taking a huge I think that the market appreciate that, but you see what today.

The stock is being 4 percent because the company is more on electric vehicles.

Do we the dynamics of how much money have to be invested into to meet the targets that wants and to meet the targets the car wants?

What’s very impressive is, if you look at European emission of 130 grams of CO2 [per liter] by pretty much every is already meeting all these Now, we’re likely to 95 grams by 2020 or 2022. In to meet these targets, you increased electrified powertrains.

BMW is the most aggressive in that

They are taking a bet with new brand and the new manufacturing technology, fiber. But again, I think the should appreciate that, and not the stock down.

How easy is it to get to do this? I was talking with Musk. He was saying that better talent over in when it comes tothe story.

Is it possible that Europe have an advantage in this

I think Europe has an advantage cars. Full stop. still important to integrate the into a car.

It’s important to manage all the drivetrain and all the features, service network and so

It’s the mindset of traditional especially in Germany, has to change. Of there’s a huge investment into traditional internal engines.

And also there’s a if you really think through the electric vehicle, there’s a lot of disappearing from cars, could mean a lot of jobs in the auto industry.
