Today almost all over the world meet to BMW i. It submarca dedicated to them vehicles electric was released there by November of 2013, by which celebrates its third birthday. The objective always was the of foster the mobility sustainable, but to day of today also is postulated as a new philosophy for the company German. Part of guilt it have them BMW i3 and BMW i8, those vehicles torchbearers of the submarca.
In addition to the three-year BMW i, the BMW Group celebrating that they have already sold more than 100,000 electrified vehicles, i.e. adding electric and plug-in hybrids. The BMW i3 is the most successful and it only reaches 60,000 units. On the other hand, from the sporty BMW i8 have been delivered 10,000 units, a not insignificant figure. To these will be added other 30,000 units of the plug-in hybrid models of the brand.
Remember that hybrids are located under the name iPerformance and that there are already several models such as the BMW 330e, xDrive40e or 5 X the series 2 Active Tourer 225xe. The strategy of the Group seems to follow that runway, since the week last could meet to the MINI Cooper S E Countryman All4, the first hybrid plug-in of this brand. A series of releases that will strengthen this type of mobility is expected in the next few years
Probably one of which more is has spoken is of the BMW i8 Roadster, that it seems that finally will come in 2018. In the following years, there will be two big releases that will mark the guideline. In first place, in 2019 will be the first MINI 100% electric and later, in 2020 will assist to the launch of the BMW X 3 electric.
