Major milestone for BMW i division

BMW has popped the champagne corks after passing the significant 100,000 vehicle milestone with its i series of electric cars.

The milestone comes up after just three years of production with the majority of sales being for the BMW i3 electric car.

The recently upgraded four-door EV has now accumulated sales of more than 60,000 units.

The sporty BMW i8 has achieved more than 10,000 global sales since it was launched in 2014.

The balance of the 100,000 vehicles primarily being plug-in hybrid versions of the BMW X5 SUV and the 3 Series.

While BMW is moving ahead with more i series models including the new plug-in hybrid MINI and 7 Series.

“BMW i remains our spearhead in terms of innovation and it will continue to open up ground-breaking technologies for the BMW Group,” says BMW Chairman, Harald Krüger.

“When it comes to electric drivetrains, we’ve already successfully managed to put this technology transfer on the road.

“The next technological advance we will address is automated driving, where the BMW iNEXT will set a new benchmark.”
