June 2022 Luncheon: “The Future on the Road”

In today’s world, the first question a car buyer has to ask himself is whether he should invest in an electric or petrol-based vehicle. Electric cars are gaining great traction and share in the car industry, but it can be hard for buyers to make up their minds. What is the status of electric vehicles in the Japanese market? Where is this trend going in the future? What are some of the points to pay attention to when investing in an electric car?
Mr. Christian Wiedmann, President & CEO at BMW Group Japan, will brief the SCCIJ as to what is in the pipeline at BMW, outline the new challenges and opportunities faced by car dealers, and provide a few tips to potential buyers looking for an expert’s advice.
“Going beyond the ideal blend of luxury, technology, and power, BMW delivers more than thrilling, sustainably designed all-electric vehicles – it’s about transforming your life with every drive.”
