BMW sees strong demand for BMWi range

Sales at the BMW Group set a new June record with a total of 227,849 vehicles delivered to customers around the world, an increase of 9.1% on the same month last year.

Demand continues to grow for BMWi and iPerformance plug-in hydrid vehicles, especially in Europe. In June, four percent of all BMW sales in Western Europe were electrified cars, with that percentage increasing significantly in markets where  e-mobility is supported by financial and infrastructure measures.

For example, in the Netherlands, 14.9% of all BMWs sold in June were BMW i or BMW iPerformance models while in Scandinavia, the figure is 13.2%.

In July, the new BMW i3 94A will celebrate its market launch; this version of the i3 has a significantly increased battery capacity.  Ahead of the launch, pre-orders of the new i3 model in Europe are already close to the 5,000 mark.

This latest record month means that the company has achieved its best ever first half-year sales: year-to date deliveries are 5.8% up on the same period last year with a total of 1,163,139 vehicles sold.
