BMW Sets New Plug-In Electric Car Sales Record In September
BMW sold already over 300,000 plug-in electric cars.
September brings a new record of plug-in electric car sales for BMW Group. The German manufacturer reports 14,500 delivered at an annual growth rate of 35%.
The market share out of overall volume stands at over 6.1% for the month and at 5.3% for the first nine months of 2018.
Strong results also enabled BMW Group to exceed 300,000 plug-in sales since late 2013, when the first BMW i3 hit the market. In total, more than 313,000 plug-in BMW/MINI were sold, including 97,543 so far this year (up 42%).
Targets for the future are:
- 140,000 sales in 2018
- over 500,000 cumulative sales by 2020
- 25 electrified models (including 12 BEVs) on the market by 2025
Pieter Nota, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG responsible for Sales and Brand BMW said:
“One very positive aspect of our sales performance continues to be the growth in electrified vehicles. September was our best-ever single month for electrified sales and with deliveries up over 40% in the year to date, we remain well on track to achieve our target of 140,000 electrified sales by the end of the year,”
