Almost 6% Of BMW Car Sales In U.S. Are i3, i8
BMW quickly reached a significant level of plug-in car sales in the U.S.
After delivering 1,000 plug-ins a month, the BMW i3 (with small support from i8) accounted for 4.8% of all BMW passenger cars sold in the U.S. in August and 5.7% in September.
This is even more than Nissan LEAF at 5.1% of all Nissan passenger cars sold in the U.S.
The reason for the high ratio (compared to other brands) is, of course, that BMW sells less cars, but anyways at almost 6% and potential for more, it seems obvious that plug-ins are here to stay.
