BMW promises to be very active in expanding its electric range. Today, BMW and Mini already have several (purely electric and plug-in hybrid) models in the range that account for about 13.3% of European sales.
The manufacturer expects this figure to rise to a quarter in 2021, 33% in 2025 and more than half from 2030.
BMWs and Minis equipped with electrified engines will account for more than 500,000 vehicles sold by the end of 2020. By the end of 2021, this figure is likely to rise to more than 1 million.
Despite the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, more electrified vehicles were sold in the first half of 2020 than in the same period in 2019.
Although those future figures are relative because last year it was already aiming at half a million electrified vehicles.
The sustainability goals of the BMW Group are aimed at having built seven million electrically powered BMW / Minis worldwide by 2030, two-thirds of which will be fully electric.
This should especially reduce emissions because the total harmful radiations of the BMW Group’s cars per kilometre driven will be reduced by approximately 40% by 2030.
