If you visit The Peninsula Shanghai, you can now experience the excitement of the BMW i8 for yourself after the five-star hotel added the award winning, innovative sports car to its luxury fleet. This move is part of BMW Group’s efforts to promote electric mobility in China and comes after the company handed over a BMW i3 to the Kempinski Hotel Beijing last year.
Rolls-Royce, BMW and MINI vehicles are used as limousine service cars at each of The Peninsula Hotels worldwide; the addition of BMW i to the line-up underlines the continuing successful partnership between BMW Group and the luxury hotel group.
Since its launch in June 2014, the BMW i8 has proved to be a highly sought-after vehicle with well over 4,000 delivered to customers worldwide. It is the world’s most sustainable sports car and the first plug-in hybrid from the BMW Group.
The BMW Group also encourages the construction of public charging networks in China by working with major Chinese state and local enterprises such as the State Grid, Shanghai Electric Power, Expo Shanghai Group, Vanke Group and Swire Group.
