366,400 BEVs were handed over to customers by the end of September despite supply constraints. It is up from 293,000 in the prior year.
In that timeframe, the BEV share of total deliveries was up 6 percent from 4.2 percent in 2021. China remains the biggest driver of BEV deliveries, with 112,700 units, more than twice the units at the end of the third quarter of 2021.

However, we reached a BEV share of 6.8 percent in Q3, the highest so far this year.” said Hildegard Wortmann, Member of the Extended Executive Committee.
