It’s not often we come across verified worldwide figures for a single plug-in electric car, but when we do we are sure to share the numbers with you.

In this instance, we’ve stumbled upon cumulative worldwide sales figures for both the BMW i3 and the BMW i8.

Here are the numbers:

  • Combined cumulative sales of i3 and i8 exceed 30,000 units worldwide
  • BMW i8 sales total 4,456 units globally since its launch
  • BMW i3 sales total approximately 25,544 worldwide since its introduction in November 2013

Wikipedia usually list global sales for cars. Here’s what they have for the i3.

Sales inclide backlog. The table probably counts only registrations.

Not bad for a car that Eloon declared as “ugly” last year! If BMW was not production constrained, it could sell thrice these numbers.

I still haven’t seen an i8 on the road. I’ve seen plenty of i3’s.

I’ve seen 3 i8s here in the GTA. (Greater Toronto Area) Probably seen less than 10 i3s.

I just saw one yesterday. Coincidentally, only about 1 mile from Tesla HQ.

I actually saw one while driving through East Lansing, Michigan (aka Not Detroit). I was very surprised. Don’t see many luxury imports in general, let alone an i8.

I’ve not seen either model on the roads here either, but when I test-drove and i3, the salesguy said that they had sold a couple of i8s and leased several i3s here.

I live in West Tennessee also… without that bit of information, my comment doesn’t make a lot of sense. haha

Looks like Canada and Switzerland are the big movers right now both selling more in Q2 2015 than all of 2014.
