Bmw trademarks ‘Bmw i’ brand for its future electric vehicles

Article by Christian A., on December 23, 2010

BMW is considering its options on the likely alternative production sites for the model that will be developed by Project i. Earlier this year, BMW announced that the majority of the Megacity line of vehicles will be built in Germany, at its Leipzig plant where the ActiveE and Vision Efficient Dynamics will also be made.

BMW is currently preparing the facility to receive the assembly lines. It’s believed that this facility would not be enough to satisfy BMW's needs.

German magazine Wattgehtab, said that it’s possible that the model would get a dedicated production line in China soon after its launch in 2013. No specific details were provided.

However, BMW's Chinese head, Christoph Stark, confirmed that the close launch date for the model will enable BMW to examine the Chinese suppliers and resources, necessary for its production of the model there.

Before the first Megacity vehicle is officially launched, it will make an appearance at the 2012 London Olympics, an event where BMW is an official automotive partner.

There were also reports that BMW has registered the names for the future range of Megacity vehicles, namely: the i1, i2, i3, i4, i5, i6, i7, i8 and i9. [via e90post]
