This past weekend, Stevens Creek BMW in Santa Clara, California opened the first full-service standalone BMW i facility which will be used to sell the i3 and i8 models. It’s right next to a MINI dealership (BMW owns MINI) and in a structure that used to house the dealership’s used-BMW sales operations.

While the California-based Crevier BMW has opened the first BMW i showroom, the Santa Clara business also has a service facility for i cars and a staff dedicated to sell electric vehicles.

“Our BMW i facility caters to only the new BMW i3 and the growing electric-car lifestyle in the Bay Area,” BMW i sales manager Tiffani Wyatt told Green Car Reports.

“We have three Level 2 charging stations that are open to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and are free to use.”

“And we have a staff of four BMW i Geniuses who are here to educate and provide extensive product knowledge on what BMW is trying to accomplish with the i3.”

Stevens Creek BMW hopes to sell hundreds of i vehicles a month to influential buyers in the Bay Area.

    Hundreds a month? That would be pretty impressive. My local dealership has sold a total of 6 i vehicles since last May.

    Could we also stretch this news into something hopeful.. perhaps they also know something about the timeline of future “i” models that made them want to open a dedicated “i” dealership ASAP? :)
