German premium carmaker BMW delivered 392,580 BMW and MINI vehicles in the first half of the year in China, its largest market across the world, up 3.7 percent year-on-year.

The carmaker saw its electric vehicles gain popularity in the Chinese market, with 44,864 units sold from January to June, up 283 percent year-on-year.

BMW is revving its efforts to enrich its portfolio of electric offerings in China. The carmaker said its iX1 and i5 will be soon locally produced at its joint venture BMW Brilliance in Shenyang, Liaoning province.

The German car group's electric vehicles are gaining momentum globally. It delivered a total of 88,289 electric BMW and MINI vehicles in the second quarter of 2023, up 117.5 percent year-on-year.

BMW said all major regions saw significant sales growth for fully-electric models – underlining the wide appeal of these models to customers worldwide.

"Strong sales development in general and especially for our fully-electric vehicles, shows that we have the right products on the market at the right time. The BMW Group will continue its successful ramp-up of electromobility at a high pace in the second half of the year," said Pieter Nota, member of the Board of management of BMW AG responsible for customer, brands and sales.

"We are winning over customers worldwide with our young and attractive product line-up. Due to our diverse offering – ranging from highly efficient combustion engines to fully electric models – we are addressing the wide variety of customer needs around the globe in an ideal way," said Nota.
