It’s actually an important policy advance From a longer-term transport policy perspective, a distance-based road-user charge on electric vehicles is an important step forward. Superficially, a charge on electric vehicle use seems misguided. Road sector emissions are the worst contributors to climate change.

As for BMW's reasons for leaving the factory, the company's spokesman explains: "Electromobility is the new normal for the BMW Group. Formula E has always been a technology laboratory for us.

"We have now almost exhausted this development potential in terms of technology and know-how. With the fifth generation of the BMW electric drivetrain, we will continue to focus on mass production," the spokesman said in addition to the official BMW announcement on Wednesday.
