BMW has delivered its millionth electrified car

The one-millionth vehicle, a BMW iX xDrive40, was handed over to its new owner at the BMW Welt centre in Munich.

BMW Group has hit a major milestone in the production of electrified vehicles.

A BMW iX xDrive40 electric SUV recently became the brand’s one-millionth electrified car delivered to a customer.

Pieter Nota, member of the board at BMW responsible for customer, brand and sales, handed over the car at the flagship BMW Welt showroom and museum in Munich.

Along with the milestone vehicle, the iX’s new owner also received a BMW home charging wallbox, along with credit for pan-European public charging.

The iX is one of two new electric BMWs this year, along with the i4 saloon.

Over the next 12 months, BMW Group aims to further expand its electrified vehicle range. This will include full-electric versions of the BMW 7 Series saloon and X1 compact SUV.

BMW aims to deliver its two-millionth electric vehicle by 2025, and produce a total of 10 million EVs during the next decade.

As part of further plans for electrification, the big-selling BMW 5 Series will gain a battery-electric version by 2023. The next Mini Countryman and the Rolls-Royce Spectre will also be launched as electric models in the near future.

The entire Mini range is set to become electric by the early 2030s, with Rolls-Royce promising the same from 2030. Even BMW’s urban mobility motorbike range will be electric-only.

Speaking about the one-millionth electrified BMW, Pieter Nota said: “Thanks to our steadily growing product range, we are setting ourselves ambitious sales targets, in particular for fully-electric vehicles.

“In 2022, we aim to double this year’s sales. By 2025, the BMW Group will have delivered around two million fully-electric vehicles to customers. We expect at least one out of every two BMW Group vehicles sold to be fully electric by 2030”.
