Belgium: 50% of newly registered BMWs have a plug!

For the first time in its history, BMW Belgium delivered 50% of its vehicles with an electric motor in August. In other words, half of the new BMWs that went to a customer in our Kingdom last month were either a plug-in hybrid or 100% electric. This is an important stage for the German car manufacturer and shows that Belgians are now prepared to invest in more sustainable mobility, both for private and professional use.

Specifically, 32.4% of the vehicles delivered were plug-in hybrid (PHEV), while 16.9% were fully electric.

A coherent range

The Bavarian brand explains this success thanks to the popularity of its iX3, iX and i4, even though its range now includes rechargeable hybrid and/or 100% electric versions for almost all models. A well-stocked catalog that has placed the car manufacturer in an excellent position in the lease market, where in most cases it is now mandatory to opt for a hybrid or even electric drive because of the tax benefits that come with it.
