We presented the BMW i8 when it hit the stage at the 2014 New York Auto Show, but we figured video from the show floor of both the BMW i8 and i3 would be worth sharing, especially since the BMW i3 is now just weeks away from officially launching in the US.

The BMW i8 isn't far behind, with deliveries expected to begin in the US perhaps as early as July.

Uniquely, BMW will go from zero plug-in vehicles offered in the US to 2 plug ins on sale in approximately 3 month's time.

For BMW, its first venture into mass-produced plug-in vehicles comes after most other automakers, but still ahead of some of BMW's strongest competitors.

It'll be interesting to see how BMW fares when its German competitors launch their own US plug in vehicle offensive.
