The BMW Group is staying strong on its way to electromobility in 2022. As recently announced, the company managed to more than double BEV sales compared to 2021 (+107.7 %) with a total of 215,755 fully electric BMW and MINI new vehicles on the road. Handing over car number 500,000 to its owner was a significant milestone reached by the end of the past year.
"Our strong product range is the best response to a challenging environment – and enables us to more than double sales of fully electric vehicles again in 2022," says Pieter Nota, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, responsible for customers, brands, and sales. The BMW Group is optimistic about the coming year.
"We will maintain our course for profitable growth in 2023. The clear focus will be on continuing to increase the share of electric mobility. The next milestone for 2023 is for 15% of our total sales to come from fully electric vehicles. With the market launch of the BMW i5 later in the year, we are taking another important step towards the electrification of our model range," commented Nota.
Auto Trendy’s take:
Each OEM should have electromobility high on their priority lists by now, otherwise, the risk is too high and companies might even get kicked out of business. BMW should be a good example to others, and we congratulate them for the achieved results. Lastly, we are curious to follow their progress within the coming year as well.
