A select group of lucky Beijing residents received the keys to BMW 1-Series hatchbacks sedans this month, the only catch is that they are pure EV’s and cost 4200RMB per month to rent.

From the China Daily

On June 18, 20 Beijing residents selected to participate in the BMW ActiveE Project received the keys to the all-electric car they will be driving over the next year.

BMW Group recently brought the program to China to prepare for the future commercialization of electric vehicles in the country.

The participants in the project are granted the right to use the ActiveE pure-electric cars over the course of a whole year for a monthly lease of 4,200 yuan.

Fifteen users in the southern city of Shenzhen will also get cars at the end of this month to give the company an idea of how the model operates in the city’s hot, humid climate, balancing the results from the test in the cooler, drier northern capital.

What’s more, BMW delivered an ActiveE to the German Embassy in Beijing on June 21.

Karsten Engel, president and CEO of BMW Group Region China, said at the handover that the BMW ActiveE Project opens a new chapter in the development of “e-mobility”.

“We will make concerted efforts with our partners and customers to push forward with the commercialization of electric vehicles, and get fully prepared for the era of e-mobility,” he said.
