Comparison of plug-in car sales from BMW’s perspective through February 2020.

BMW Group (BMW and MINI brands) today released a new set of global electromobility charts, showing its performance on the plug-in electric car market over the past 12 months (since March 2019 to February 2020), using IHS Markit New Registration data.

* 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 still the plug-in car leader - but its share decreased from 21% to 18% (compared to two months ago). That's because several other brands are selling a lot more plug-ins this year than in 2019.

Volkswagen (11%) and Mercedes-Benz (10%) both improved their position, completing the (all-German) podium.
