The new BMW X3 xDrive30e Plug-in Hybrid
With a 10-year plan for sustainability, the BMW Group underscores its commitment to the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement by focusing primarily on expanding electric mobility. Today, BMW and MINI brands with all-electric and plug-in hybrid drive systems already account for around 13.3 percent of all new registrations across Europe (source: IHS Markit New Registrations Report July 2020). This corresponds to 1.5 times the average share of all brands, which is around 8 percent. The Group expects this figure to rise to a quarter by 2021, a third by 2025 and 50 % by 2030. Vehicles of the BMW and MINI brands equipped with electrified drive systems are now offered in 74 markets worldwide, where more than 500,000 electrified vehicles have been sold through 2019. By the end of 2021, that figure will likely rise to more than 1 million. Despite pandemic-related restrictions, more BMW Group vehicles were sold in the first half of 2020 than in the corresponding period of the previous year. The BMW Group's sustainability targets aim to put more than seven million vehicles with electrified drive systems on the road worldwide by 2030, two-thirds of them fully electric variants. As a result of the massive expansion of electric mobility, the emissions produced by BMW Group vehicles per kilometer driven will be reduced by around 40 percent by 2030.
