From idea to real deal.

When a new plug-in vehicle makes it to production, we like to take a look back at where it all started.

In this case, we found video of two plug-in BMWs, both of which went from idea to reality.

The BMW i3 is already on sale in countries around the globe.

The BMW i8 will begin deliveries to buyers this June.

From two wild concepts years ago to two production plug ins.

Enjoy this look back from the beginning to where these vehicles are today.
