Five fully-electric models in 2021 +++ Further expansion of plug-in hybrid fleet +++ Goal: 100% renewable energy for all sites from 2020 +++ Krüger: “Ensure a world worth living in for our children“

Munich. The BMW Group, a pioneer in electromobility, is rapidly expanding its range of electrified vehicles. Within two years, the company will offer five fully-electric series-production vehicles: Alongside the BMW i3, with more than 150,000 units built to date, this year will see the start of production of the fully electric MINI at Plant Oxford (UK). This will be followed in 2020 by the fully-electric BMW iX3 from Shenyang (China) and in 2021 by the BMW iNEXT, which will be produced in Dingolfing (Germany), and the BMW i4 from Plant Munich (Germany).

Including its extensive fleet of plug-in hybrids, the BMW Group has the widest range of electrified vehicles on the market. Updated, extended electric-range plug-in-hybrid versions of the BMW 3 Series, BMW 7 Series and BMW X5 alongside the new BMW X3 plug-in hybrid were presented at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. A few weeks later, the updated plug-in hybrid variant of the BMW X1 Long Wheelbase Version, which is produced locally for the Chinese market, was shown at the Shanghai Auto Show. This diversity of electrified drive concepts underlines the importance of technology openness on the road to sustainable mobility.


BMW Group sales grow in April and in year-to-date +++ BMW sales up 2.3% with 171,154 deliveries worldwide in April +++ Positive sales development bucks trend in several major markets +++ Sales increased in China, USA, Germany, UK +++ BMW i3 deliveries up 21.6% in April +++ MINI Electric sales quadruple year-on-year +++ Nota: “We’re making steady progress in a challenging environment”

Munich. BMW Group sales continue to grow steadily, with deliveries of premium BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce vehicles increasing by 0.7% in April. The month saw a total of 196,179 BMW Group vehicles delivered to customers, bringing the total for the year-to-date to 801,520 / +0.2%. This positive result was achieved despite the downward trend in many markets around the world.

“This positive sales result, achieved in a challenging environment, shows that with our ongoing model rollout, we are attracting new customers to our core brand and making steady progress towards achieving our goal of increased sales in 2019,” said Pieter Nota, Member of the BMW AG Board of Management responsible for Customer, Brands and Sales. “Demand for the BMW X7 has exceeded our expectations and has helped overall sales of our BMW X vehicles grow by over 20% in April. The model changeover of the BMW 3 Series is proceeding as planned and in markets where the seventh generation is already available, customers are responding very positively to the new model,” Nota continued. 


Recognition of provision for EU proceedings +++ Volume growth achieved despite prevailing sector trend – market share increased +++ Further rise in upfront expenditure for tomorrow’s mobility +++ Significant increase in Motorcycles segment EBIT +++ Good quarter for Financial Services segment +++ Electrified vehicle deliveries continue to grow +++ Tomorrow’s mobility requires openness to new technologies +++ Krüger: “Tailwinds expected in second half of year”

Munich. Within a challenging market environment, the BMW Group has started the financial year 2019 in line with expectations in operational terms. Contrary to the prevailing trend in the sector, the Group's attractive and significantly younger model range enabled the company to set a new record in terms of deliveries to customers in the first quarter, thereby expanding its market share of the premium-segment in key regions. These positive developments were accompanied, however, by increasing downward pressure on pricing in some markets.

“The Group's new first-quarter sales record proves that we are putting the right products on the roads, thereby attracting new customers, as well as inspiring existing clients. In operational terms, we remain firmly on course and expect business to benefit from tailwinds, especially in the second half of the year, as numerous new models become available. At the same time, we are experiencing the impact of high levels of expenditure in numerous areas affecting the entire automotive sector. In addition, it has also been necessary to recognise a provision relating to ongoing proceedings of the EU Commission,” stated Harald Krüger, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, on Tuesday in Munich. “Within this challenging environment, we will remain true to the BMW way of doing things. We are fully focused on our roadmap for future mobility and the rigorous implementation of our Strategy NUMBER ONE > NEXT”.
