BMW i3 Reaches 10,000 Sales

Launched in 2013, the BMW i3 has become the best-selling compact electric vehicle in the premium segment with BMW UK recently reporting its 10,000th sale.

Sales have grown significantly since its launch with 1,220 vehicles being sold in 2014 to 3,458 in 2017. BMW expect these numbers to continue to grow, in no small part due to the introduction of the sporty BMW i3s.

New vehicle registrations alone, of course, don’t tell the full story as the BMW i3 has been awarded many accolades since entering the market including Car of the Year in 2014, Best Electric Car of the Year in 2017 and Best Zero Emission Car by Fleet News this year.

Graeme Grieve, Chief Executive Officer BMW UK, commented: "This is an important moment for electric cars in the UK. With the electric vehicle market growing at astonishing pace, I am proud that the BMW i3 has played such a major role in promoting EV ownership."
