The BMW Group (BMW and Mini) reports 95,533 vehicle sales in the United States during the second quarter of 2023 (up 14 percent year-over-year).

Results last quarter and year-to-date:

  • BMW: 87,948 (up 11%) and 170,414 (up 12%)
  • Mini: 7,585 (up 48%) and 14,869 (up 24%)
  • Total: 95,533 (up 14%) and 185,283 (up 13%)

While the total results are positive, the most important things are happening in the all-electric car segment.

BMW battery-electric vehicles (BEV) sales - currently i4, i7, and iX models - in Q2 amounted to 11,376, which is 952 percent more than a year ago and a new quarterly record.

Previously, the German brand never achieved a five-digit result and let's note also that it's not far away from Ford (14,843) and General Motors (15,652), which are supported by a $7,500 federal tax credit.

BEV sales also noted a record 12.9 percent share in the brand's total volume in Q2. That's more than one in ten new vehicles, which is probably just the beginning.

Sebastian Mackensen, President and CEO, BMW of North America said:

“The word is out – the ‘Ultimate Driving Machine’ is also the ‘Ultimate Electric Driving Machine’. As the enthusiasm around these great products grows, we continue to gain both momentum with customers and BEV share in the market.”

  • BMW i4: N/A

BMW's all-electric car sales results are expected to further increase, as there are new versions of existing models, and new models in the pipeline (BMW i5 for example).

The BMW Group does not report plug-in hybrid car sales, as well as BEV/PHEV results for the Mini brand (plug-in hybrid Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 and all-electric Mini Cooper SE), so does are not included in this report.
