BMW hasn’t announced how many examples it will build, but the automaker has said the cars will be sold exclusively in China.
BMW will also use this year’s Beijing Auto Show to launch its eco-friendly i brand on the Chinese market, with sales of both the i3 electric car and i8 plug-in hybrid sports car to start there later this year.
