Default Like the Successful Toyota Prius Prime, BMW i3 Sales Drive Accelerated EV Plans

With the German automaker's global plug-in sales set to surpass half-a-million by 2020, all indicators point to BMW ramping up its electrification efforts, as Toyota did last week.





Would it surprise you to learn that BMW Group, comprising BMW and MINI model vehicles, has racked up more than 400,000 plug-in EV sales globally, since beginning production of the BMW i3 way back in 2013?

It certainly gave us pause for thought, as the electric offerings from the German automaker to date are something of a mixed bag.

While the i3 has lined up as a popular option for buyers who want a refined electric drive without going all-in on Tesla, the minuscule electric range on models like the BMW i8 and MINI Cooper plug-in hybrid is less impressive. The latter has caused many EV enthusiasts to question BMWs commitment to the cause.

The history of the BMW i3, however, offers much more cause for optimism.
