Chairman says BMW will make 100,000 electric vehicles a year by 2020

The last I knew, BMW was averaging only roughly around 10,000 each for 1-Series, 6-Series, and 7-Series per year in the US. Even if only one third of these i3's got sold in the US, this would represent a significant number of sales by BMW's standards. Considering how few real "green" cars BMW sells in the US, these would most likely represent quite a few net-new customers for BMW, attracting customers away from other brands, like Toyota (Prius), Chevy (Volt), and VW (TDI). In the automotive world, these kind of conquest sales are considered the biggest wins. Yet I still get the feeling that BMW is resisting all of this anyways.
