The BMW i3 is sold in more than 74 countries, and BMW just assembled the 250,000th i3 unit. BMW says that in all its years on the market, the i3 converted a lot of new customers - 80% of all i3s were sold to buyers from other brands.

To BMW, the i3 is the most successful EV in the 'premium compact segment'.
