The BMW Group has posted solid year-on-year sales growth of 8.4% for the 2021 year, with a total of 2,521,525 BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce vehicles delivered to customers worldwide.

BMW sales reached a new all-time high of 2,213,795 units (a 9.1% increase against 2020) last year, with the brand leading the global premium segment. The company also more than doubled its sales of fully-electric vehicles in 2021 to 103,855 units (an increase of 133.2%).

37,939 iX3s were sold in 2021, accounting for close to one on ten of all BMW X3s sold that year
With 37,939 BMW iX3 vehicles sold in 2021, about one in ten BMW X3 vehicles delivered to customers worldwide was fully electric.

At the same time, the BMW i3, the world's only fully-electric premium vehicle in the compact segment, continued to grow in its ninth year, with 28,216 units sold, 5.4% more than were sold in the previous year.

The BMW Group also released two key innovation flagships, the BMW iX and the BMW i4, onto the market late last year.

The firm plans to further expand its electric lineup in 2022 with fully-electric versions of the BMW 7 Series and BMW X1 and, in 2023, the high-volume BMW 5 Series. These will be joined by other models, including the successor to the MINI Countryman and the all-electric Rolls-Royce Spectre.

By 2023, the company will also have at least one fully-electric model on the roads in about 90% of its current market segments. Over the next ten years or so, the company plans to sell a total of about ten million fully-electric vehicles.
