BMW delivered over 100,000 electric vehicles in 2021

The BMW Group delivered 103,855 fully electric vehicles in 2021. This is 133.8% more than in the previous year. Sales of plug-in hybrids also increased.

In total, BMW delivered 328,316 BEVs and PHEVs, an increase of 70.4 per cent compared to 2020.

In the report on the 2021 sales figures, BMW even goes into detail on individual models. For example, 37,939 units of the iX3 launched at the end of 2020 were sold worldwide, which according to BMW means that around one in ten X3s is fully electric. In the case of the Mini 3-door, one in three customers apparently opted for the all-electric Cooper SE, with the model achieving 34,851 sales. And even the i3 was able to increase sales by 5.4 per cent to 28,216 units in its ninth year of sales.

Across all drive types, the BMW Group delivered 2,521,525 vehicles, an increase of 8.4 per cent. Of these, 2,213,795 vehicles were delivered by the BMW brand (+9.1 per cent), 302,144 vehicles by Mini (+3.3 per cent) and 5,586 vehicles by the British luxury subsidiary Rolls-Royce (+48.7 per cent). The share of electrified vehicles was thus 13 per cent.

“With more than 100,000 fully-electric vehicles sold last year, ramping up electromobility was our clear focus….In 2022 we want to continue our profitable growth and we will systematically expand our range of fully-electric vehicles. We have set ourselves particularly ambitious growth targets in this area and aim to more than double our sales of fully-electric vehicles from last year.”

Chief Sales Officer Pieter Nota

In 2022, BMW plans to launch fully electric versions of the 7 Series and the X1, among others. In 2023, the i5 is to follow as an electric version of the 5 Series. There were rumours here that the i5 could be launched not only as a sedan but also as an estate – BMW does not comment on this in the announcement.
