Strategic decisions on future model line-up bearing fruit The BMW Group began early with the systematic electrification of its vehicle portfolio. The BMW Group already offers plug-in hybrid models in all relevant vehicle segments and occupies a leading role in Germany and worldwide. Against this background, the company welcomes Germany\u2019s economic package and expects to benefit from this stimulus, especially through incentivisation of electrified vehicles. Production of the fully-electric BMW\u00a0iX3 will begin in a few months. Next year, electrification of the model line-up continues with the fully-electric BMW i4 and the BMW iNEXT. The BMW Group aims to have a total of 25 electrified models on the roads by 2023 \u2013 more than half of them fully electric. The BMW Group has also continued to refresh its model range and presented the new generation of its sporty two-door BMW 4 Series Coup\u00e9 in the premium mid-size segment in late May. The new BMW 5 Series has also been on the market since June, with numerous design and technology innovations that underpin its leading position in the premium upper mid-size segment. THE 5 offers the largest selection of plug-in hybrids in the BMW portfolio, with five model variants. The MINI brand's young electrified product line-up also had a positive impact on sales figures. In the first half of this year, a combined 8,587 units (+4.1%) of the plug-in hybrid MINI Cooper SE Countryman ALL4* and the fully-electric MINI Cooper SE* were sold.\u00a0 BMW and MINI sales in key regions worldwide\u00a0 Germany The BMW Group\u2019s domestic market saw a positive trend in new orders \u2013 in particular, for electrified vehicles \u2013 at BMW, and especially MINI.
