FRANKFURT — German luxury carmaker BMW presented two electric models on Friday, signalling its arrival to a segment that is key to the industry’s fortunes.

The all-electric i3 is aimed at the urban car market and should hit dealerships in 2012. The hybrid i8 is due for delivery in 2014 and is more geared towards high-performance auto enthusiasts.

“This is an important new milestone in BMW’s history,” chief executive Norbert Reithofer declared as the vehicles were shown to media.

“As the leading premium auto manufacturer in the world, we wanted to offer clients automobiles that were made to order, with an electric motor,” he added.
