BMW Lifts i3 Electric Car Production 43% on Higher Demand – Bloomberg

Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW), the world’s largest maker of luxury vehicles, has increased production of the i3 electric city car 43 percent to meet demand that has exceeded the carmaker’s initial expectations.
The premium manufacturer in recent weeks has raised daily output to 100 vehicles from 70 previously at the factory in Leipzig,Germany, where the model is assembled, Harald Krueger, BMW production chief, said in an emailed statement to Bloomberg.
BMW has already built more than 5,000 i3s since the start of the year, Krueger said. The current production rate translates to about 20,000 vehicles for the full year, almost twice as much as BMW’s initial sales forecast.
BMW began rolling out the i3 last November and will begin bringing the i8 hybrid sports car to market in June. Both vehicles have a carbon fiber chassis to cut weight and improve fuel efficiency. The Munich-based automaker said in February that it’s building a second production hall at a jointly run plant with SGL Carbon SE (SGL) to boost assembly of the material.
