Highlights in brief (keep in mind, BMW does not announce any surprise concepts in these press releases).

World premiere for the new BMW X4 (See Official Thread): New edition of the first Sports Activity Coupe at the premium end of the mid-size class, of which more than 200,000 have been sold worldwide; expressive, now even more unique, design; premium interior ambience is striking in a sporty way; state-of-the-art driver assistance systems and latest BMW ConnectedDrive functions; significantly enhanced driving dynamics thanks to equipment including M Sport suspension, variable sport steering and M Sport brakes; two BMW M Performance models with six-cylinder in-line engines and M Sport differential in the line-up.

Show premiere in Europe for the new BMW X2 (See X2 News/Features): Compact Sports Activity Coupe with standalone design combining sporting elegance with the rugged character familiar from BMW X models; efficient engines combine with six-speed manual gearbox, seven-speed dual-clutch Steptronic transmission or eight-speed Steptronic transmission; sporty suspension set-up; latest BMW ConnectedDrive Services, wide range of driver assistance systems and BMW Head-Up Display with projection onto the windscreen available as options.

European premiere for the new BMW M3 CS (fuel consumption combined: 8.5 l/100 km [33.2 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 198 g/km): Limited-run special-edition variant of the high-performance sedan with increased output, bespoke suspension details and exclusive equipment; BMW M GmbH builds on its 30-year tradition of alluring special-edition models based on the BMW M3 and with particularly strong motor sport inspiration; six-cylinder in-line engine with BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology and 338 kW/460 hp, M Driver’s Package, Adaptive M suspension and cup tyres fitted as standard.
Show premiere in Europe for the new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer and new BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer: extensively updated premium compact models in the Sports Activity Tourer segment; precisely modified design, further developed powertrain technology, innovative connectivity technology from BMW ConnectedDrive; successful vehicle concept combines spatial functionality and comfort with the brand’s familiar sportiness; BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer can also be specified as a seven‑seater, BMW 2 Series Active Tourer also available in a plug-in hybrid variant.

Show premiere in Europe for the new BMW i8 Roadster (fuel consumption combined: 2.1 l/100 km [134.5 mpg imp]; power consumption combined: 14.5 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 46 g/km) and new BMW i8 Coupe (fuel consumption combined: 1.9 l/100 km [148.7 mpg imp]; power consumption combined: 14.0 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 42 g/km): Captivating appeal of the pioneering and world’s most successful plug-in hybrid sports car can now also be experienced with the roof down; BMW i8 Roadster features specific suspension set-up, gullwing doors, a windscreen frame made from carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) and an electrically operated soft-top; both models feature further developed BMW eDrive technology delivering enhanced dynamics and an even more intensive electric driving experience.

BMW i has a fine record of success: More than 100,000 vehicles with either pure-electric or plug-in hybrid drive systems from the BMW i, BMW iPerformance and MINI brands sold in 2017; BMW i among the global leaders in electric mobility; BMW Group tops the registration rankings for electrified vehicles in Europe with a market share of 21 per cent; BMW Group has a worldwide market share of 10 per cent and is also one of the global leaders; BMW i enjoys a standout position as a successful systems supplier and provider of mobility services across the electric mobility sphere.

Yep, and there was already talk of a concept vehicle of some sort, allegedly an M vehicle. Hopefully something exciting is awaiting us next month.

Jason I thought this was a BMW article, more than half the photo is of ceiling grids...

Bimmerpost needs to send Dackelone down there to shoot some decent photos!

+1 They've been teasing the 8er for a while and now they suddenly revealed the x4 so it'll be weird if they keep the 8er under wraps.

I already saw the x2, i8 roadster, M3cs and the 2 series active/gran tourer at the Brussels Motorshow. Why do they call it an European Premiere?

The Geneva show is one of the largest in the world - perhaps *the* largest.

I would expect to see every model in the lineup represented, including all of the M models.

I thought the BMW booth @ Chicago was underwhelming - you couldn't even sit in the M cars, for example.

Hope they put on a better show in Geneva.

are you looking for worldwide figures?

there are US figures in this thread.. looks like approximately 9 thousand i3 and i8 were sold in 2016 and around 7 thousand in 2017...

http://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho....php?t=1453830

I will say.. that results postings are definitely spotty... Searching BMW group within bimmerpost yields the following..

BMW at Geneva auto show
BMW Group achieves best ever January
BMW Group US reports increased January sales
BMW Group US reports December and year end sales
BMW Group increases sales in November
BMW USA reports November sales
BMW group sells 2 million vehicles YTD
BMW group US reports October Sales
BMW EV sales tops 10K per month
BMW group US reports September Sales
BMW group achieve best ever August sales
BMW group US reports August sales
BMW group has best July ever
BMW group achieves best ever June and first half year
BMW US reports June Sales



AWOL - (absent without leave)

BMW Group December and year end sales
BMW Group October Sales
BMW group September sales etc..
BMW Group US June Sales

Back to your point... it sure seems that BMW (AG) certainly hides the actual number of FULLY electric BMW i vehicles within other numbers.

we are def going to try. I believe we have a forum member that requested one already whenever anything comes available. Could be a low allocation item you never know. I am one who really likes the i8! Its one of my favorite BMWs, when I saw the roadster I was in love!
