Leipzig. The #bmw Group continues to build on its leading international role in the field of electro-mobility, as the 100,000th #bmw #i3 rolled off the production line at the company’s Leipzig plant today. The #bmw #i3 has played a major part in making the #bmw Group one of the most successful suppliers of electrified vehicles worldwide. Harald Krüger, Chairman of the Board of Management of #bmw AG, and Plant Director Hans-Peter Kemser celebrated this milestone with Saxony’s Minister-President Stanislaw Tillich, other guests and plant employees. At the event, Krüger and Kemser also presented the next member of the #bmw i family, the #bmw i8 Roadster, as a camouflaged prototype; series production of the #bmw i8 Roadster will begin in 2018. A further highlight was today’s official commissioning of the #bmw Battery Storage Farm Leipzig, which will connect up to 700 #bmw #i3 high-capacity batteries. The large-scale battery storage system at the Leipzig plant will give batteries previously installed in #bmw #i3 cars a second life and put them to profitable use in a sustainable, energy-based business model.

“We are proud of the 100,000th #bmw #i3 built by our plant in Leipzig. The #bmw #i3 is the original, a true technological pioneer. With #bmw i as our spearhead, we intend to remain the leading premium supplier of electro-mobility going forward. We are now looking ahead to the next member of the #bmw i family, the i8 Roadster, which will expand our leading position in the field of electro-mobility. In 2025, we will offer our customers a total of 25 models with electrified drive trains,” said Krüger. “In the interests of sustainability, today we are also presenting a concept for the second use of #bmw #i3 high-voltage batteries. With our Strategy NUMBER ONE > NEXT, we are looking far beyond the car itself and driving change in our industry with totally new approaches and business models.”
