At the end of the first half of 2015, the BMW i sub-brand has cracked another important mark: Over 30,000 copies of the BMW i3 and BMW i8 have been sold since their market launch.
Even though the two innovative vehicles with carbon fiber passenger cell are still not available in all planned markets planned, the sales have been nothing short of positive. The fully planned market launch will be completed in August. The BMW i sales figures in June 2015 amounted to a total of 2,017 vehicles, around 65 percent higher than the same month last year. In the first half of 2015, 12,500 BMW i vehicles were sold – last year only 5,405 were purchased.
BMW i3 made its debut in Germany in November 2013 and was introduced over the next few months in various markets.
Worldwide, there were 26,205 BMW i3 electric vehicles sold; 9,846 i3 units in the current year.
The highly popular BMW i8 had a great start as well. 4,456 units of the plug-in hybrid sports car have been reported sold worldwide, with more sales expected as soon as production ramps up.
