BMW was 10 grams per km under its European Union CO2 emissions target in 2021, helped by strong sales of electrified models including Mini vehicles and advances in combustion-engine technology.
Group emissions were 115.9 g/km, BMW said, compared with a regulatory target of 126 g/km in the 27 EU countries plus Norway and Iceland. The figures have not yet been validated by the European Commission.
BMW brand launched two all-new full-electric models toward the end of 2021, the iX SUV and the i4 sedan.
The automaker hopes to double global EV sales in 2022 to more than 200,000, with two new full-electic cars: The i7 variant of the new-generation 7 Series upper-premium sedan, and the iX1, a version of compact X1 SUV. A battery-electric 5 Series is due in 2023.
