By selling a lot of low-range PHEVs, BMW Group takes a high share in the plug-in segment

In 2018 BMW Group (BMW and MINI) sold some 142,617 plug-in electric cars (up 38.4% year-over-year) at an average of 5.7% of its total volume.

Besides the usual report, the German manufacturer shared also set of very interesting infographics, based on the 2018 data from IHS.

The main message that BMW would like to convey to us is that in the case of electromobility, BMW is well ahead of the industry average and one of the biggest players in the world. Of course, that's only if we count all-electric and plug-in hybrids together, as PHEVs account for the majority of BMW's result.
