BMW hits 100,000 electric cars
With sales of electrified models building significantly, October’s impressive BMW i and BMW iPerformance sales (5,952 units) led to an important milestone for electro-mobility at the BMW Group, with the 100,000th electrified BMW delivered to a customer at the very start of November. Almost half of those 100,000 sales have been made just this year, with a total of 47,286 BMW i and BMW iPerformance models sold in the first ten months of 2016. “Our sustained efforts in the field of electro-mobility are paying off,” commented Dr Ian Robertson. “BMW i and BMW iPerformance offer customers the largest range of electric drive trains across all segments and BMW i continues its role as the spearhead of innovation at the BMW Group, enabling technologies which can be applied across our entire model range,” he continued.
