This number increased 149.2 percent over the same quarter last year. This year the BMW Group plans to more than double the sales of electric vehicles compared to last year. By 2021, the BMW Group will successfully deliver 103,855 fully electric vehicles.
In total, 35,289 all-electric BMWs and Minis were delivered to customers representing 5.9 percent of the BMW Group's overall sales in the first quarter of 2022. In the first quarter of 2022, the BMW group delivered 596,907 of all types of vehicles to consumers. The number decreased 6.2 percent compared to the first quarter of last year.
The company did not differentiate between the BMW and Mini brands in its overall first-quarter 2022 sales report.
BMW also did not mention the distribution of sales numbers between the BEV and PHEV models. By comparison, by 2021 the distribution of BEVs and PHEVs among electric vehicles will be roughly one-third battery-electric and two-thirds plug-in hybrid. The BMW Group targets sales by 2025 of more than two million fully electric vehicles.
“Our clear focus is on improving electromobility,” said Pieter Nota, member of the sales board. “In the first quarter, we accelerated the fast pace of growth from 2021 even further and are fully on track to meet our ambitious growth target for fully electric vehicles by 2022.” Pieter Nota said
