BMW to delay future i models until they can better anticipate demand - report

Rumors about a BMW i5 have been swirling for years but BMW's production boss has revealed the company won't introduce any new i models until they have a better grasp on demand.

While the i3 is off to a successful start, Harald Krueger told Bloomberg "We need to see how demand for the cars develops." There's no word on when a determination will be made but it will likely come after the model has been launched in key markets like the United States.

As we have previously reported, the i3 was launched in Germany last November. Since then, the company has received more than 11,000 orders which has resulted in a waiting list of up to six month.
