Sales of BMW Group (BMW and MINI) plug-in electric cars in the U.S. continue to decrease in June for the sixth consecutive month.

This past month some 1,744 plug-ins were sold (down 22.6% year-over-year), which is around 5% of the total BMW sales volume.

Currently, more than half of the sales fall on the BMW 530e iPerformance - 908 in June (3,277 YTD). We believe that BMW will be back to growth in the coming months when new/refreshed plug-ins hit the market and then we should see a new sales record as well as hopefully over 10% share for plug-ins.

Model changeover has limited the current BMW Group electrified lineup to five models including the BMW i3, BMW i8 and i8 Roadster, BMW 530e, and MINI Countryman plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. Plug-in hybrid variants of the BMW X5, the all-new BMW 3 Series and updated BMW 7 Series recently debuted at the Geneva International Motor Show.
