BMW i3 - What Will the Global Sales Volume Be?

BMW i3 - What Will the Global Sales Volume Be?

We've got forecasted global sales figures here for both the BMW i3 and BMW i8.

BMW i8 Sales Globally Will be Strong Given Its Substantial Price Tag, Says IHS

BMW i8 Sales Globally Will be Strong Given Its Substantial Price Tag, Says IHS

Courtesy of the analysts over at IHS Automotive, we present what we believe to be the first projected sales figure for BMWs pair of "i"s.

Car and Driver reports the following after speaking with IHS:

"IHS expects global sales for the i3 to amount to 21,416 units next year and 22,480 in 2015, with 1,932 i8s expected to find homes in 2014 and 5,085 the year after."

Those are global sales figures, not just for the US.

In terms of i3 sales, we see IHS as being spot on (30,000 units annually is basically max production volume for BMW in regards to the i3).  i8 sales are much more difficult to predict though, so we're not so certain of the IHS' forecast for that particular model.

What do you think of these IHS predictions?  Too high?  Too low?
