Fully Electric 5 Models
The BMW Group’s investments in electric mobility began to bear fruit with 192,662 electric BMW and MINI brand cars sold worldwide, becoming one of the most important growth factors for the brand in 2020. In electric car sales, which increased by 31.8 percent compared to the previous year, all-electric versions increased by 13 percent and Plug-In Hybrid engine versions increased by 40 percent. The rate of total deliveries of electric cars in Europe increased by 15 percent. In the fall of 2020 following the launch of the new BMW ix3 in China, it turns out the way in Europe and Turkey. A total of five electric models will be available by the end of the year, with the BMW i3, the New MINI Cooper SE and the upcoming BMW i4 and BMW iX.
Given the rapid development of electrification, the BMW Group, which foresees that up to 50 percent of the engine variants used today will disappear by 2025, also continues its investments to reduce the complexity of its model portfolio and increase purchasing and production efficiency.
