BMW is putting an end to its i8 sports model, after a short six-year run.
The production version of the i8, the German automaker’s first plug-in hybrid model, was first introduced at the Frankfurt auto show in 2013, and first entered the American market in 2014.
In 2018, BMW refreshed the i8 coupe and introduced a roadster version.
Last year on the large U.S. market, the model did see its sales increase by 43%, to 1,102 units. The increase was even stronger in Canada, where the i8 went from a measly 18 units sold in 2018 to 264 last year.
