The BMW Group sold 4,504 battery-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles around the world in April. The top three markets for these vehicles were the US, Scandinavia and the UK.
Global sales of the all-electric BMW i3 increased 50.7% compared with the same month last year (1,854), with overall sales for BMW i up 29.4% on the month (2,181).

Overall, April saw a total of 179,285 BMW Group automobiles delivered, an increase of 1.9% on the same month last year. Electric drive vehicles thus constituted 2.5% of total global sales for the month.
