BMW BEVs more than double again in Q1

12 April 2023, 12:50:54

BMW BEVs more than double again in Q1The BMW Group posted significant growth in its global sales of fully-electric vehicles (+83.2%) in the first quarter of 2023. Overall, the BMW Group delivered a total of 64,647 fully-electric BMW and MINI vehicles to customers in the first three months of the year. The BMW brand was able to more than double its sales of fully-electric vehicles in the first quarter, with 55,979 units delivered to customers (+112.3%).

With the rollout of the new BMW i5 this year, the BMW Group will offer at least one fully-electric model in every major segment of its business and anticipates a steep growth trajectory in the coming years: By 2024, at least one in five of the company’s new vehicles should have a fully-electric drive train; by 2025, one in four newly delivered vehicles should be a BEV and, by 2026, about one in three. The BMW Group believes that, as the NEUE KLASSE ramps up with its compelling product substance, it has the potential to further accelerate the market penetration of e-mobility.

Customers are particularly enthusiastic about its fully-electric vehicles: In the year to the end of March, BMW deliveries were up +112.3% to 55,979 units and the brand was able to double its sales of fully-electric vehicles once again, compared to the same period of last year. The BMW iX, BMW i7, BMW i4, and BMW iX3 were particularly in demand. The newly launched BMW X1 is also proving very popular with customers, thanks to its hallmark driving pleasure and sporty elegance. With the launch of the new BMW 5 Series and the fully-electric BMW i5 this year, the BMW brand will offer customers a wide range of products in the high-end model segment. The product lineup will be joined towards the end of the year by the fully-electric BMW iX2 and the first fully-electric 5 Series Touring.

Demand for the fully-electric MINI Cooper SE also remains high. MINI expects positive momentum from the sales launch of the first fully-electric MINI Cooper SE Convertible. The new MINI family started the year by presenting two fully-electric MINI models and continues to prepare for full electrification of the brand by 2030.

Preparations for initial customer deliveries of Rolls-Royce Spectre, the world's first ultra-luxury electric super coupé, are in full swing ahead of its market launch in the fourth quarter of 2023; by the end of 2030, Rolls-Royce will offer only fully-electric vehicles.
