Other manufacturers of electrified cars have also recorded some never-before-seen sale numbers.
Another year is around and it is time for crunching some numbers. Most of car manufacturers have already done this, majority of them recording some quite impressive results when it comes to sales numbers – also in the field of electrified cars. Among them is also BMW, one of the most prominent European car manufacturers recently.
According to official data from the factory, BMW has managed to sell a total of 142.617 new electrified cars in 2018 alone (BMW and Mini combined). What may not seem a lot is actually an impressive result, since this means their growth is more than 38,4 percent. 75.000 or more than a half of those cars were sold in Europe, which means, that BMW is market leader in this region with 16 percent market share.
“Since launching the BMW i3 in 2013, the BMW Group has rapidly grown its sales of electrified vehicles. With over 140,000 delivered in 2018, we have once again achieved our ambitious target,” said Harald Krüger, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG. Targets for near future are even more ambitious since BMW is planning to have more than half a million electrified cars on the road by the end of 2019.
As mentioned before, BMW is not the only manufacturer with excellent sales results on the field of electric and electrified cars. For instance, Renault managed to sell 6.400 ZOE’s in Germany alone, while the best of three was Toyota. More than 480.000 hybrids were sold in Europe to date with 18 percent growth compared to the last year. Those are some serious numbers and we are not even commenting the results of all manufacturers such as Tesla, who has finally managed to produce sufficient production of Model 3 or even Hyundai, Kia, Nissan and their results.
