BMW executives are now talking about shelving plans for both vehicles because the governments in many countries where the models will be sold are pulling back on plug-in incentives. To further complicate matters, electric-vehicle charging infrastructure isn't as far along as expected. Automobile adds that BMW also put plans for the i1 city car and i5 van on hold.

BMW getting cold feet with i3 and i8 electric vehicle plans?
Not a chance...way too much invested by BMW into the i Brand ...I already know who will be running the i brand dept for BMW NA so it's full steam ahead

...the infrastructure is in's just a matter of plugging into the power grid
