BMW increases sales of electrified vehicles by 31.8%-electrified

BMW has succeeded in reaching the CO2 emission targets for 2020. That is the summary of Pieter Nota, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, responsible for customers, brands and sales. He gave it to be understood that the Bavarian automobile manufacturer succeeded last year 192.646 electrified BMW and MINI vehicles sold. BMW was thus able to increase sales by a third (+31.8%) compared to the previous year.

The “CO2 fleet targets in the EU have even been exceeded and the legally prescribed limit value can even be a few grams undercut,” Nota continues. Regardless of the contribution to achieving the CO2 fleet targets, e-mobility at BMW also presents itself in absolute figures as a significant growth driver for the company. Sales of fully electric vehicles increased by thirteen percent and plug-in hybrid vehicles by almost forty percent. In Europe, the share of electrified vehicles in total sales was already fifteen percent.

The importance of MINI was highlighted particularly positively in the current report. In the challenging year 2020, the sales development of the MINI brand was 292 in an extremely competitive segment.394 units (-15.8%). The all-electric MINI ELECTRIC with 17.580 vehicles sold and the John Cooper Works models, of which a total of 20.565 units (+20.8%), experienced. An announcement. Also suggests that the efforts to find more E-MINIs are likely to bear fruit.

The BMW Group has now expanded its range of electrified vehicles (fully electric and plug-in hybrids) to thirteen models, which are available in a total of 74 markets around the world. By 2023, the BMW Group plans to almost double its vehicle range to 25 electrified vehicles, with more than half of the models being fully electric. The introduction of the all-electric MINI and the BMW iX3 last year will be followed in 2021 by the start of production of the all-electric BMW iX in Dingolfing and the BMW i4 in Munich.

    Politicians should now intervene here and exclude plug-in hybrids from the bonus, so that plug-in hybrids are no longer worthwhile and their share falls well below 5% – otherwise BMW will continue to produce these “cheat e-cars”, which then destroy the used car market fill with stinkers for years.
