BMW to Reconsider a Wider “I” Range of Electric Cars

Rumors stated that due to the first model which managed to surpass expectations of selling more than 11,000 units worldwide since November, the BMW automaker is said to expand the range of the i-branded electric range.

But the production chief at BMW, Harald Krueger, said that the company won`t be adding a third model to the i-branded range until higher demands will be on the roll.

The i-series has been trademarked by the i9 version, but Krueger also stated that it has no plans to add it to the i3 and i8 plug-in hybrid cars, going on sale this spring.

But the BMW`s compact MPV was just spotted wearing a 225i badge, which is a confirmed statement that the vehicle will arrive under the new 2-Series range.

The BMW i5 highly dependent on i3 success

For a while now, BMW has been circulating news about a third name for their brand new i sub-branch, namely the i5.

But while they have already confirmed plans for this model, they have yet to green light its production.

The reason behind this is the fact that the German car maker is not yet sure of the complete success of their first two green cars, with a greater emphasis on the small i3. They have invested heavily into developing the technologies that went into making the model, so the safe thing to do is wait until they know for sure that the i3 will sell.
