BMW i3 Hits the Stage in Detroit – BMW Confirms May 2014 For US Launch – i3 Orders Exceed 11,000
The BMW i3 has hit the stage at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.
With its appearance comes new news.
BMW boss in charge of sales and marketing, Ian Robertson, has confirmed to InsideEVs two points of significant interest.
First, US deliveries of the i3 will kick off in May 2014.
Second, BMW has 11,000 orders worldwide for the i3. These, as Robertson tells us, are actual orders logged in BMW’s system, not them fake hand-raiser orders.
We suspect then that BMW is working hard to fulfill these existing orders.
As a refresher, the BEV version of the i3 has a base MSRP of $41,350.
The REx version starts at $45,200.
A fully loaded REx i3 comes in at $56,025.
