BMW i3 Goes Interstellar
Just when you thought Tesla had the Denmark EV Market covered, that's when BMW goes ballistic and registers 407 i3's!
Putting those numbers in context, that's 74% of all EV's registered last month, obliterating the previous monthly record for a single model (180 units, made by the Tesla Model S last March), with the Bavarian
In other news...There's only the fact that the Model S surpassed the Audi A6 in YTD sales and became the best selling car in its segment, ahead of the BMW 5-Series, Merc E-Class and the aforementioned A6.
The rest of the competition continued in holidays, selling in small numbers, with no significant performances or position changes.
Oh, and by the way, BMW i3 jumped to Second Place and is the only model close to give Tesla a fight for the leadership.

I think this explains...ReplyDelete
I think this extreme performance comes as a result of a car sharing program in København that ordered 400 i3 cars: http://cleantechnica.com/2015/08/14/400-bmw-i3-electric-cars-head-to-copenhagen-carsharing-program/ReplyDelete
That are all Carsharing i3 drive now in Kopenhagen.ReplyDelete
While the Tesla sales a most private !
BMW added 400 i3 to its drivenow fleet in copenhagen in August...ReplyDelete
Any chances that this was the first batch of x coming?Delete
Doubt it, i expect the X to arrive in significant numbers to Europe next year.Delete
Oh, with X i meant X (as unknown numer) cars of the i3. Sorry for poor wording. But thanks on the info about the model x ;-)Delete
Are there more i3 coming in september for the car sharing, maybe? I don't think so because it's already a huge number, but one can hope... maybe? Any infos from the danish readers?
Thanks for the explanation!ReplyDelete
Ok. During one minute I thought that the BMW i3, inspired by Tesla, have passed in "Ludicrous Mode"... :)ReplyDelete
Ha ha ha, that's a good one!
And of course, with wind power providing such a high percentage of generation in Denmark electric cars here are much "greener" than those elsewhere in the world!ReplyDelete
As the number of order I'm seeing in the google spreadsheets in TMC (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1XZiDkogRyBqHMEnlWJT4HA8BKxYjR5J-z5TPikra8gQ/edit#gid=456592867), the Tesla will pass in Ludicrous mode until the end of this year. The end of the tax rebates must have to do something with this.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the input!Delete
