BMW and Rimac have today announced the start of a long-term partnership, which is interesting because Rimac is owned by Bugatti Rimac, which is 45% owned by Porsche, which is owned by Volkswagen, which is one of BMW's main competitors.

Anyway, the aim of the collaboration between Rimac and BMW is "to co-develop and co-produce innovative solutions in the field of high-voltage battery technology for selected battery-electric vehicles", the official press release notes.
