I know, it seems strange to us too! But in a short and to the point article posted by Reuters, BMW says the i8 has sold out for next year.

Ian Robertson, global sales chief for BMW, said the BMW i8 plug-in hybrid sports car, due to be introduced in mid-2014, has sold out of its first year availability. Robertson didn’t comment on how many BMW was planning to sell in that first year.

At the LA Auto Show, Robertson also mentioned that BMW has nearly 10,000 orders (we’re assuming globally) for the i3 electric vehicle that is set to go on sale in North America in the second quarter of 2014.
