The news comes hot on the heels of Audi announcing its own Formula E withdrawal although, in contrast to its Volkswagen Group rival, BMW is not committing to any other motorsport in place of Formula E. Instead, a brief statement said that BMW will shift its focus towards global electric road auto production, aiming for one million electric vehicles on the road by the end of 2021.

"The same engineers who develop the drivetrains for electric production vehicles are also responsible for the drivetrains in the race cars".
