For what? BMW directors and the whole industry know JLR is out of the game.I can still imagine that BMW could partner with JLR.
BMW's problem is asking people to pay 4 times for a Rolls-Royce EV SUV, and twice for a large BMW EV SUV, what Rivian will charge for an R1S, or no doubt countless Chinese super-luxury EV SUVs.
Without a V12 engine, why pay 2-4 times more for maybe a tenth of a decibel less noise? Is the badge that important?
As I said, the Rivian SUV is the 1970 Range Rover of our day. It's too big for Europe, but it'll absolutely kill JLR - Full-fat/RRSport/Defender - dead in the US and Canada.
The iX is the start of doing that to the same in Europe, with the EQS SUV, EQE SUV etc on the way.
I'm sorry, but JLR as a whole thing is over.
