The BMW Group sold a total of 128,196 all-electric BMW and MINI vehicles in the first nine months of 2022.
BMW Group continues to record high demand for its electric vehicles from the BMW and MINI brands, which has led to a further doubling of its sales of 100% electric cars in the first nine months of the year. A major milestone it announced in its first half-year results for 2022.
Total sales to September, amounting to 128,196 units of BMW and MINI vehicles, more than doubled its sales of all-electric vehicles in the same period last year (+114.8%). In the third quarter, 52,306 all-electric BMW and MINI vehicles were delivered (+121.6%). BMW AG Board Member responsible for Customers, Brands and Sales, Pieter Nota, said:
“The dynamic growth of our all-electric models reflects how the BMW Group’s electric line-up is winning customers as we continue to make progress in the transition to electromobility.
With our attractive and sustainable product range across all drive technologies and our strong operating performance, we are on track to meet our sales targets for 2022.”
Alongside the BMW iX3, the company’s two flagships; the BMW i4 and BMW iX, continue to drive growth. That growth is expected to be further boosted by the arrival of the BMW brand’s two new all-electric models: the BMW i7 and BMW iX1, which the brand says are being well received, as is the China-only BMW i3 eDrive35L saloon.
As for the MINI brand, the Group reports that the all-electric MINI Cooper SE is also recording strong growth. Between January and September, MINI sold 29,191 all-electric MINI Cooper SE* (+45.2%).
In addition to the electrics from both brands, which will be joined by new models next year such as the BMW i5, there is also the Rolls-Royce Spectre, the brand’s first 100% electric car debuting this month. With the Spectre, Rolls-Royce begins its commitment to the full electrification of its portfolio by 2030.
Based on the Group’s current sales, and taking into account new additions to come, the BMW Group aims to have more than two million fully electric vehicles on the road by the end of 2025.
