BMW Sold Record 11,710 Plug-In Electric Cars In November
BMW Group has set a new monthly sales record for plug-in electric vehicles in November at 11,710 deliveries, which is almost one thousand more than its previous record set in September.
The growth year-over-year now stands at 63.5%. Moreover, the share of plug-ins to total sales hit a new high of 5.3%!
With such great progress, YTD sales have hit 89,806 and with one month to go there should be no problem for BMW to reach its goal of 100,000 plug-in electric vehicles sales worldwide in 2017, and 200,000 cumulatively.
It’srefreshing to see an automaker to both go out on a limb with an aggressive short-term target…but also to hit it.
- the plug-in hybrid version of the BMW 5 Series already accounts for 22% of 5 Series sedans delivered in the US
- In the UK, one in three BMW 3 Series sedans sold in November was a plug-in hybrid
- More BMW i3 were delivered to customers worldwide during the year through the end of November (28,040 units) than in the whole of 2016 (25,528 vehicles).
Dr. Ian Robertson, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, responsible for Sales and Brand BMW said:
“With our strong premium brands, BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce, the BMW Group covers all segments and is the world’s leading manufacturer of premium vehicles. Strong demand for our new BMW 5 Series shows just how popular this new model is with customers around the globe. We also sold more electrified vehicles in November – 11,710 – than ever before in a single month. We are now looking forward to celebrating delivery of our 100,000th electrified vehicle before the end of the year,” Robertson added.
