An i3 Rolls Off The Line (all automated of course) At BMW's Leipzig Facility, Headed To A German Customer In November

Earlier this week we learned that BMW was considering more production capacity for the i3, as the German auto maker had received more than 8,000 pre-orders for the car - not including the upcoming demand in the US.

First Deliveries To The US Won't Happen Until

First Deliveries To The US Won't Happen Until "The Spring," But You Can Order Your Own i3 Next Month!

But what of US ordering?

Currently orders are being taken throughout Europe with the first consumer deliveries scheduled for November 16th in Germany.  BMW has priced the i3 in the US from $41,350 in "all-electric" trim version, and from $45,200 with the range extender option.

Now comes word from Jacob Harb, who is the Head of Electric Vehicle Operations at BMW USA, on when order books will open for US customers.

 "We'll take orders in November and deliveries will start in the Spring"

Now the only question left is "will you being signing up for a plug-in BMW?" 

(Well, that and what the heck is the actual EPA range rating on the i3)
