The BMW Group sold more than 140,000 electrified (battery-electric and plug-in hybrid) vehicles in 2018, thereby confirming its leading role in the field of electromobility. A total of 142,617 electrified BMW and MINI vehicles were delivered to customers around the world last year, which is 38.4% up on the figure for 2017.
“Since launching the BMW i3 in 2013, the BMW Group has rapidly grown its sales of electrified vehicles,” said Harald Krüger, chairman of the board of management of BMW AG. “This great sales result, and our impressive market share, proves our vehicles are what customers want. In countries which offer appropriate infrastructure and regulatory support, we see how quickly electromobility can become the norm. I’m confident that by the end of 2019, there will be a total of half a million electrified BMW Group vehicles on the roads, with much more to come as we continue to extend our model line-up over the coming few years.”
