Welcome to the official i Series Register.


BMW Project i is a sub-brand of BMW founded in 2011 to design and manufacture plug in electric vehicles. The company's initial plans called for the release of two vehicles; the i3 a five door zero emission urban electric car and the i8 a plug-in 2 door sports coupe hybrid. Concept versions of these vehicles were shown at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show.


The BMW i3 European launch took place in November 2013 followed by the BMW i8 In June 2014. Both cars are based on carbon-fibre reinforced polymer tubs with many new sustainable materials and most advanced production techniques available for low weight and excellent performance with economy. An all electric BMW i5 SUV will join the line up in 2017.
