BMW UK is celebrating a significant milestone as the 10,000th BMW i3 is sold today.  

Launched in 2013, the BMW i3 has evolved to be the best-selling compact electric vehicle in the premium segment. With updates to the BMW i3 and the addition of a new, sportier variant in the BMW i3s, success is set to continue.

Thanks to the latest BMW eDrive technology, both the BMW i3 and new BMW i3s offer emission-free driving with instantaneous power delivery, efficient use of energy and an increased range.

This strong market position is not isolated to just the UK. In 2017, BMW Group sold more than 100,000 electrified vehicles and both BMW i and BMW iPerformance became the best-selling Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) brands worldwide.

BMW i vehicles are now sold in 74 countries and charging has never been easier with 130,000 ChargeNow accessible charge points worldwide with more than 6,000 in the UK alone .

In addition to successful vehicle registrations, the BMW i3 has been awarded many accolades since entering the market, further cementing the groundbreaking zero emission car's status. This includes winning titles such as Car of the Year in 2014, Best Electric Car of the Year in 2017 an Best Zero Emission Car by Fleet News this year, to name a few of many.

Graeme Grieve, Chief Executive Officer, BMW UK commented: “This is an important moment for electric cars in the UK. With the electric vehicle market growing at astonishing pace, I am proud that the BMW i3 has played such a major role in promoting EV ownership.”

CO2 emission information.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
