BMW i3 production comes to an end.

BMW stops the production of the i3 after eight and a half years of its launch.

BMW has stopped producing its premium compact electric car, the i3, after making more than 250,000 units. The BMW i3 was launched in September 2013, eight and a half years ago.

A few days ago, BMW rolled out the 250,000th unit of the compact e-vehicle from its plant in Leipzig, Germany. With being sold in more than 74 countries worldwide, the i3 is the world’s most successful electric vehicle in the premium compact segment.

For the BMW Group Plant Leipzig, the farewell to the BMW i3 is linked to the start of a new chapter in electric mobility. BMW will start manufacturing e-drive components and high-voltage battery modules at the Leipzig plant. Also, BMW will use the electric mobility expertise of the workforce to manufacture the MINI Countryman at the same location from the next year.

Milan Nedeljković, Member of the Board of Management for Production at BMW AG, said: The BMW i3 is a true pioneer and the epitome of pioneering spirit. Thanks to the BMW i3, the Leipzig plant became the birthplace of e-mobility at BMW. With the expansion of the production of e-drive components, the Leipzig plant will remain “electric” in the future. It will become the hub for electric mobility and supply our production network worldwide with components.
