Whether the motivation for buyers is saving on fuel expenses or lightening their environmental impact (or both!), sales of EVs are steadily increasing in the United States. This fact is not being taken lightly at BMW. The German carmaker has ordered up extra units of the i3 and i8 to be shipped across the pond. They can barely keep BMW EVs on the shelves!
The i8 is BMW’s plug-in hybrid sports car. So far, 280 units have been bought up. BMW may have to increase production to keep up with the public’s desire for it.
In the entire world, 130,000 people have visited a dealer and taken the BMW i3 for a test spin. The portion of those test-drivers who were American went on to buy 10,000 units. That’s incredible, considering that the i3 has only been available in the States since this summer!
We at JMK BMW are not surprised at all about the high demand for these models. We think they’re great and we believe you will agree. Stop by and test drive one today!
