During the third quarter of 2020, BMW Group (BMW and MINI brands) increased its global plug-in electric car sales by 46.6% year-over-year to a new all-time high of 54,719!

It's the highest growth that we saw during the past few years, and because of it, the plug-in share out of the overall volume improved to a record 8.1%!

The positive news for the Group is that the total sales volume of BMW and MINI is also up in Q3 (but not yet YTD).
