BMW sold over 140,000 EVs in 2018

Luxury carmaker BMW Group on Thusrday said that the company has sold more than 140,000 electrified (battery-electric and plug-in hybrid) vehicles in 2018 worldwide.

In total, the company delivered 142,617 units of electrified BMW and MINI vehicles, registering a growth of 38.4 per cent, to customers around the world last year, BMW said in a release. 

“Since launching the BMW i3 in 2013, the BMW Group has rapidly grown its sales of electrified vehicles. With over 140,000 delivered in 2018, we have once again achieved our ambitious target,” 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 the customer wants. 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 this year, 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 next few years,” Krüger added.
