By now, if you’re interested in BMW’s new EV offering, you probably already heard that the i3 is selling pretty good, the Germans reporting over 10,000 units have already been ordered, forcing them to increase carbon fibre production at Moses Lake.
A new report done by Car and Driver says that things are even better (or worse, depending on which side of the barricade you are). They claim that they talked to the German dealers that can actually take orders for the new EV and they said that if you were to order one right now, you’d probably have to wait until April to take delivery.

That’s a lot of waiting time. Furthermore, the Munich-based company is apparently planning to hold ceremonies for each i3 delivered in until March, making sure every customer will feel better about himself once he leaves the dealership with his own EV.

The worst news is for those looking for a car fitted with the range extender feature. It seems like deliveries for that model could be postponed until July.
