First 9 US-Bound BMW i3s - Scheduled to Arrive in New York on April 2

First 9 US-Bound BMW i3s - Scheduled to Arrive in New York on April 2

Several BMW i3 buyers are now tracking shipments of the i3 from Germany to the US.

Why track them?  The answer is simple: These i3 are headed here for delivery to those buyers.

Among the future BMW i3 owners is InsideEVs contributor George Betak.

Some clever sleuthing by Betak has led to a few discoveries.

  • Asian Emperor is US-bound (California) with BMW i3s on board
  • VIN numbers are listed for each i3 on the ship
  • Approximately 50% of the i3s currently shipping to the US are earmarked for California buyers
And lastly, the BMW i3 REx to BMW i3 BEV ratio for US buyers is, as of right now, 4:3 in favor of the REx.

BMW i3s are hitting both coasts for delivery in the US.  As some arrive in California, others will land out East.

Of note is that the EPA has not yet issued final figures for the i3, so initial buyers are without official range and MPGe figures for now.
