Another successful month for BMW as the company delivers 2,255 BMW i plug-in hybrid and electric vehicle models in March, giving another boost to the sub-brand overall. A total of 5,128 BMW i electric vehicles have been delivered to customers worldwide in the year-to-date, with 2,255 of those delivered in March.

March 2016 saw the BMW Group sell more vehicles than in any other single month in the company’s 100 year history. A total of 240,659 BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce vehicles were handed over to customers around the world, an increase of 3.5% on the same month last year. In the first three months of the year, sales increased 5.9%, totalling 557,605 vehicles. This then counts as almost 1% of the entire sales quota – something that even the most optimistic pundits will definitely be surprised with.

“March 2016 has been the best single month ever for BMW Group sales and I’m delighted to see that our innovative product range is enabling us to achieve ongoing, sustainable and profitable growth,” said Dr Ian Robertson, member of the Board of Management of BMW AG responsible for sales and marketing BMW. “Globally, I am confident that we will see this positive trend continue through the year,” he added.

For the time being, BMW only offers two models as part of their green lineup: BMW i3 and BMW i8. First is an all-electric city model, coming with or without a range extender, perfect for urban driving scenarios. The second one is a high-performance plug-in hybrid. With a dual powertrain, the vehicle is equipped with a petrol engine delivering 228 hp (170 kW) and an electric motor delivering 129 hp (96kW) of power, allowing the vehicle to sprint from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in as low as 4.2 seconds. As a plug-in hybrid with eDrive, the BMW i8 gets up to 76 MPGe fuel efficiency, far beyond conventional sports cars with comparable performance.
