The BMW Group has so far sold over 550 electric vehicles in Romania, said Josef Reiter, general manager of the group.
“Almost half of the 550 vehicles sold by us were purchased by customers in 2019. Demand is very high, and the transition to electromobility is exponential,” said Reiter.
BMW started sales of electric vehicles in Romania in 2016, subsequently starting a series of car sharing projects with local partners.
“We are currently working with E.ON to develop the charging infrastructure for electric vehicles. We want to offer new packages to our customers, consisting of cars and charging stations,” he said.
BMW sold 2,858 cars last year in Romania, which represents a 3% increase over 2018. Hybrid plug-in models were bought by 58 customers in 2019, and the electric i3 model by 229 customers – an increase of almost 55% over the previous year.
