BMW's i5 electric SUV won't hit the showrooms earlier than 2021

Attached Image Last month, patented images of BMW's third i model leaked online, showing off the model's SUV-like body shape. However, it is not due anytime soon.

Said to be more than five years away from reality, the i5 won't launch until 2021 to allow it to make full use of an improved electric powertrain and the most advanced autonomous technologies, according to Autocar's interview with Ian Robertson, BMW's Head of Sales and Marketing.


Attached Image Roberston added on that the i brand is still very new and there are opportunities that take time to build up, from i cars to i Performance products to i kit, such as an electric scooter.

The article then went on to suggest that an SUV for the next i model bodes well for the company since the demand for SUVs are still strong.
