The world’s number one manufacturer of premium vehicles is planning to sell 140,000 electrified vehicles in 2018.

In 2017, the Munich-based car manufacturer sold more than 100,000 electrified vehicles.

The company said on Tuesday that this will help it to maintain its leading position in the premium battery-electric/plug-in hybrid segment.

With sales of BMW i, BMW iPerformance and MINI Electric vehicles increasing by 36.7% compared to January last year, BMW said in a statement that things are well on track to achieve that target.

Worldwide, a total of 7,155 customers took delivery of a premium BMW electrified vehicle in January, the company said.

More than a quarter of all BMW and MINI vehicles sold in Scandinavia were electrified.

“Other very strong markets include Great Britain/Ireland, where electrified vehicles accounted for 11.1% of total BMW and MINI sales and the USA, where the proportion of electrified sales was 5.2%,” said the German car maker.
