Comparison of plug-in car sales from BMW’s perspective - as of August 2019.

Today we will take a look at the global electromobility charts, provided by BMW Group (BMW and MINI brands) using IHS Markit New Registrations data, collected through the end of August 2019.

As usual, the purpose of the presentation is to show the brand's position being higher than the industry average, but let's check what else we can learn from the new set of infographics.

Electromobility In Germany. Share In New Registrations By Brand.

In Germany, the BMW brand is the plug-in car leader with a 21% share (up from 19% in H1 2019).

During the first eight months, it seems that Tesla (11%) is on par with Renault (11%). Tesla had 7,330 registrations (including 6,160 Tesla Model 3), while Renault ZOE 7,238.

It's very surprising that Mitsubishi with aging Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is fourth, ahead of Volkswagen!
