BMW expects to sell twice as many electric cars in Belgium next year

German luxury car maker BMW expects to sell twice as many electric cars in Belgium next year. BMW Group Belux CEO Alexander Wehr stated this on Monday at a press conference on the upcoming European Motor Show Brussels.

Achieving that target would mean that by 2023 a quarter of BMWs sold in Belgium would be electric. By 2022, half of all BMWs sold in Belgium were already "electrified": plug-in hybrid or fully electric.

At the 100th edition of the European Motor Show Brussels in January, BMW will present a Belgian premiere with the BMW 3.0 CSL: "a technical masterpiece that embodies the essence of 50 years of passion for motorsport". In addition, BMW's subsidiary, Mini, will present its Belgian premiere Mini Concept Aceman in Brussels, an all-electric crossover model with a material concept that uses no chrome or leather.

The growing popularity of electric cars is not only visible at the annual European Motor Show Brussels. It is also reflected in figures from Statbel. For instance, more and more hybrid vehicles are driving around in Belgium. In 2022, there will be 375,107 of them compared to only 258,916 in 2021 (+45%). The number of fully electric passenger cars also rose by 75% to 71,651. The number of gas-powered vehicles rose to 17,740 (+11%).
