BMW Aims for Massive Electric Car Sales

The new 2020 plug-in electric vehicles sales target at BMW is 500,000 units, the company’s CEO, Harald Krueger, has stated in an interview with the Germany newspaper WirtschaftsWoche.

To put that another way, BMW is now aiming to have sold half a million plug-in electric vehicles worldwide by the end of 2019 — meaning that the company is aiming for sales to pick up quite a bit by then, as “only” 100,000 plug-in electric BMWs have been sold worldwide as of the end of 2017.

To elaborate on that, Krueger told the German weekly newspaper noted above that deliveries of electrified vehicles were to increase by a “medium double-digit percentage” during 2018. Presumably, 2019 would then see a similar increase, if the new goal is to be achieved.
