BMW UK reveals sales network for electric sub-brand

At launch, the network is focused on areas of high population with sites located as far afield as Plymouth and Aberdeen, and each is fully equipped to work with the vehicles’ high voltage batteries. This will be extended to include a network of service centres with a wider geographic spread.

The BMW i range will launch at the end of 2013 with the i3, the camaker’s first fully-electric production car, with the i8 plug-in hybrid supercar to follow. Owners will also be given access to a range of mobility solutions, including access to parking spaces, charging points, ‘smart’ navigation systems, links to other forms of transport and on-demand use of other BMW vehicles if required.

To date, 6,000 customers have registered an interest in the i range via BMW’s website.
