The end of June, marked the end of an era for BMW when the last BMW i3 rolled off the production line, some eight and a half years after it was launched into the market.

BMW described the i3 as a source of inspiration, a driver of innovation and a pioneer of locally emission-free driving pleasure.

It added that their i3 started as an exotic specimen in the barely tapped market for electric vehicles in 2013 but developed into a classic with unmistakable charisma. The i3 will go down in the company’s history as a pioneer of sustainable mobility and with more than 250,000 units built, it is the world’s most successful electric vehicle in the premium compact segment.

While not compatible with many longer-range EV’s today, the BMW i3 was a visionary technology standard-bearer from day one, and not just because of its electric drive. With its ‘Life-Drive’ architecture, it also set new standards in lightweight vehicle construction.

BMW says that the last BMW i3 units remain available for purchase from BMW retailers and are expected to sell out in the coming weeks.
