BMW has hit its global target to sell 100,000 electric cars in 2017.

This is up more than 60% from the 62,255 electric vehicles (EVs) the car manufacturer sold last year.

To celebrate this milestone, the company’s headquarters in Munich has been illuminated to look like four upright-standing batteries.

During the illumination, the company’s 100,000th EV this year was handed over to its new owner by BMW CEO Harald Krüger.

Harald Krüger, Chairman of the Board of Management at BMW, said: “Selling 100,000 electrified cars in one year is an important milestone but this is just the beginning for us.

“Since the introduction of the BMW i3 2013, we’ve delivered over 200,000 electrified cars to our customers and by 2025, we will offer 25 electrified models to our customers.”
