BMW i3 ends the nine-year-long journey with limited HomeRun Edition

German luxury car brand BMW has ended production of the i3 compact electric hatchback after a nine-year-long run. The automaker reports that a total of 250,000 units of BMW i3 have been built. To celebrate the nine-year-long journey of the company, BMW introduced a limited batch of HomeRun Edition of the i3. This comes as a sendoff to the BMW i3 electric compact hatchback. BMW i3 came as a competitor against rivals such as Nissan Leaf and Tesla Model S. However, none of these were direct competitors against i3. BMW launched the i3 at a time when there were only a few electric cars on the market. It is sold in a total of 74 countries across the world.
