BMW EV Sales Increase by 80% in 2015

BMW UK sold over 3,000 electric vehicles as its dedicated BMW i brand saw sales of the i3 and i8 grow by more than 80% compared to 2014. BMW has also expanded its range of plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) with the introduction of X5 PHEV and 3 Series PHEV models. Neither of these has contributed to the dramatic sales increase but BMW is confident they will be popular amongst customers who value cheap running costs and high reliability without adversely affecting performance.
