BMW i8 Added To Automaker’s European Delivery Program

MAY 6 2017 BY MARK KANE 4

BMW has expanded its European Delivery Program at the Welt with the BMW i8, an experience which was previously was limited to just more conventional petrol models.

It could be an interesting option to not only purchase the i8 (or an iPerformance model), but also combine the buy with a trip to Europe and visit BMW’s Welt operations.

Customers picking up vehicles at Welt operations are presented with a “staged experience” waiting on their vehicles in a glass-walled hall, with their cars lifted up from lower levels on elevator platforms; and while their, why not check out BMW HQ and museum?

Better still, is that customers can save up to 5% off the base MSRP (details are available through dealers) at the same time.

BMW i3 still isn’t included in the European Delivery Program.

“The hidden gem in BMW’s buying process has been and still is, the European Delivery Program. BMW, as well as many other German car makers, offers a European Delivery option when ordering a brand new Bimmer. Many people don’t realize that this program exists, otherwise we feel like there would be significantly more Americans doing it.

It’s a wonderful program that allows the customer to not only get a significant discount on their car but a trip to Germany and other European countries as well as an experience to remember for a lifetime. Compared to the Americans, European customers often have to pay an extra fee – up to 500 euros – for the wonderful delivery experience.”

Was curious how much the MSRP was when selecting EDP, not on BMWs site yet…

Do people actually pay more than 95% of MSRP here in the US? Been awhile since I have noticed but I used to see big discounts on the i8.

This is for people already planning on a European vacation and purchasing a new BMW. The idea is you can tour Europe in your new car then ship it back to the USA. I might be wrong on this point, but I think the shipping is included in the price.

As a German the articles use of “Welt” sounds awkward to my ears. The German word “Welt” just means “world” and BMWs “BMW Welt” is a name for something which means rather “world of BMW” maybe. AFAIK is the “BMW Museum” just next to “BMW Welt”.
I’d suggest to always write BMW in front of “Welt” of you aren’t talking about the real world in which we all live in, no matter which car brand we like or if we own a car at all, or a drivers license for that matter…
