Group Board Member Sales Hildegard Wortmann said the company despite various challenges, especially in the second quarter, the sales of electric vehicles saw success. “Demand continues to be strong and we expect an improving supply situation in the second half of the year. June BEV deliveries showed a clear upward trend already to the monthly levels of Q4 2021. We are working intensively to reduce the high order bank and the delivery times for our customers and are committed to our goal of a BEV share of 7 to 8 per cent for the full year," added Wortmann.
