The first ever EV to be developed by the Munich-based company was sold in November in over 400 units in Western Europe, making for a slower start than expected, according to InsideEVs.com. However, we should point out that sales started on the 16th of the month meaning the i3 had only 2 weeks to prove its worth last month.
To be more exact, in November, 121 new i3 registrations were recorded in Germany and 469 on year-to-date basis. That means that over 300 units were sold outside Germany, in countries like the UK, France and Netherlands that also received the electric car last month.
Even though the numbers might seem worrying, considering BMW decided to start off with a slow ramp-up in production, to make sure all cars respect the highest expectances in built quality. Recent reports show that the demand is so high that if you order an i3 right now, you might have it delivered by April. If you want one with the range extender, you’ll be waiting till July.
