The BEV share of total deliveries climbed to 6.0 percent in that timeframe, up from 4.2 percent in the same period of 2021. China remains the biggest driver with 112,700 BEVs – more than twice as many as at the end of Q3 2021.

Hildegard Wortmann, Member of the Extended Executive Committee: “Customers love our brands’ all-electric model range which is the broadest in the industry. Due to the strong demand and ongoing supply constraints, our order bank remains on a high level. However, we reached a BEV share of 6.8 percent in Q3, the highest so far this year.”
