Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW.XE) said Wednesday that it has signed a five-year supply contract for sustainable lithium with China-based Jiangxi Ganfeng Lithium Co. Ltd. (002460.SZ) worth 540 million euros ($598.2 million).

The German luxury car maker said it will secure its lithium hydroxide needs for fifth-generation battery cells, as it aims to have 25 electrified models in its line-up by 2023.

"Our need for raw materials will continue to grow [...]. By 2025, for lithium alone, we expect to need about seven times the amount we do today," said Andreas Wendt, board member at BMW.
