Jack Pitney, BMW Vice President of product & marketing, talked to me at the Ben Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, PA.

Some of the questions I asked were:

The United States is 95% dependent on gasoline, but BMW is bringing in diesel. How is diesel doing for BMW?

Where are the X5s produced?

What percentage of the X5s that are diesel that are exported?

What about electric vehicles for BMW? We’ve seen the MINI-E and now the BMW active-e.

Which vehicle is going to have more on the road, diesel or electric?
