The BMW Group (BMW and Mini) reports 91,849 vehicle sales in the United States during the third quarter of 2023 (up eight percent year-over-year).

Results last quarter and year-to-date:

  • BMW sales: 83,949 (up 8%) and 254,363 (up 10%)
  • Mini sales: 7,900 (up 10%) and 22,769 (up 19%)
  • Total sales: 91,849 (up 8%) and 277,132 (up 11%)

For us, the most important thing is how quickly the company is increasing all-electric car sales.

BMW battery-electric vehicles (BEV) sales - currently i4, i7, and iX models - in Q3 amounted to 13,079, which is 202 percent more than a year ago and a new quarterly record.

Besides the total number, the key factor is the BEV share of 15.6 percent of the brand's total volume (also a new record).

BMW reports that the iX sales amounted to 5,541, which is a pretty decent number for a large, premium SUV. It also means that the other two models (i4 and i7) noted a combined sales of 7,538.

BMW BEV sales in Q3'2023 (YOY change):

  • BMW i4: N/A
  • BMW i7: N/A
  • BMW iX: 5,541 (up 221%)
    other (i4, i7): 7,538
  • Total: 13,079 (up 202%) and 15.6% share

Unfortunately, the numbers for the Mini brand are not available.

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 those are not included in this report.
