BMW sticks to plans to export from China despite tariffs

Other German carmakers look to follow move to raise ownership stakes

SHANGHAI -- German carmaker BMW is sticking to plans to make China an export platform for its new electric models, despite uncertainty about tariffs and the trade conflict between Washington and Beijing.

The company denied reports that the trade war between Washington and Beijing -- which has seen tariffs imposed on Chinese car imports into the U.S. -- had prompted a rethink on plans to export the iX3, an electric version of the X3 compact crossover SUV, from China.
