BMW Group Plug-In Electric Car Sales In U.S. Decreased In October 2018
Another month of decrease for BMW.
BMW Group managed to increase BMW car sales in October by 0.2% (2% YTD), but electrified car sales (BMW i, iPerformance and MINI plug-in hybrids) are shrinking, which is especially visible when the overall plug-in market surges month after month to record levels.

The plug-in car volume stands at a stable 7.4% of total sales by the group. It’s expected to increase when new versions and new models become available.
The lineup consists of: BMW i3, BMW i8, BMW 330e iPerformance, BMW 530e iPerformance, BMW 740e iPerformance, BMW X5 xDrive40e and MINI Countryman plug-in-hybrid.
