BMW saw a massive growth in China – 87% – and since the green market is heating up, they probably thought best to release an electric version of their hottest selling sedan.
In 2010, the BMW Group sold 169,000 BMW and Mini vehicles in Chinan, In 2011, the group will introduce at least three new models into China through imports – the new BMW X3, the new BMW 6-series and the Mini Countryman.
