46 UK dealerships to handle sales for BMW i sub-brand

Article by Anita Panait, on May 20, 2013

Forty-six sales agents across the United Kingdom will comprise the network of dealers that BMW UK has tasked with supplying and supporting its new BMW i sub-brand. Each sales agent will have specialist technical capabilities that will enable them to repair the vehicles’ high voltage batteries. 

BMW UK is planning a wider service network that will offer extended coverage for the general service, maintenance and repair of BMW i vehicles, which feature electric drive systems and premium mobility services. BMW initially confirmed two BMW i cars for production -- the full-electric BMW i3 and the plug-in hybrid BMW i8 sports car.

The BMW i3, the carmaker’s first full-electric production car, will be available in the UK in late 2013. Like the i8, the BMW i3 features an all-aluminum chassis combined with a passenger cell made from lightweight carbon-fiber reinforced plastic.

According to BMW Group UK Managing Director Tim Abbott, customer inquiries on the BMW i are already “extremely high,” with over 6,000 people indicating their interest.Abbot remarked that with the announcement of the BMW i retail network, they are now open for business and “taking deposits on the i3 and i8.”

He noted that BMW i dealerships are located in areas with “highest concentrations of population.” Prospective buyers can register their interest with BMW i agents or online at www.bmw-i.co.uk. Aside from the electric vehicles, BMW i also offers a range of premium services for mobility intended at optimizing parking spaces, recharging infrastructure, ‘smart’ navigation systems, intermodal route planning and access to other BMW models on an ‘on-demand’ basis.
