BMW announced that they have already doubled their global EV sales compared to all of 2021.

Munich. The BMW Group sold a total of 75,891 fully-electric BMW and MINI vehicles worldwide in the first half of 2022 – more than doubling its all-electric sales compared to the same period of last year (+110.3%). This growth underlines the company’s focus on ramping up electromobility and confirms the high desirability of its pure electric models among customers worldwide.

“Despite a very challenging environment, we were able to more than double our sales of fully-electric vehicles worldwide in the first half of the year,” said Pieter Nota, member of the Board of Management of BMW AG responsible for Customer, Brands, Sales. “It’s not just our electrified models that are inspiring customers around the globe: Thanks to our innovative and sustainable product line-up, the BMW brand was once again number one worldwide in the premium automotive segment in the first half of the year,” Nota continued.

The BMW Group was able to further expand its segment leadership in the premium automotive segment in the first half-year. During this period, the company delivered a total of 1,160,443 BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce vehicles to customers. Compared with the first half of 2021, the strongest in the company’s history, sales decreased by 13.3 percent. Across all industries, this year continues to be impacted by the geopolitical situation in Eastern Europe, the effects of the intermittent Covid lockdowns in China and persistent bottlenecks in semiconductor availability.
