If they ended a year before these figures...I'd expect zero sales. How are there 3 new sold?

There hasn’t been 3, the 3 was from August 2017, when BMW sold 498 of them YTD that year. In 2018 there’s been 2 total, and I’d bet those were BMW company cars or leftover dealer loaners.

My guess is low dealer inventory and no new factory orders from March or April. I tried to order one a few months ago and finally picked up my 2019 230i on August 30. They're just starting to hit the dealer lots.

Sad to see these low 2 series numbers. It's an awesome driver's car, usable back seat, and still offers manual transmission, 6 cylinders and rear drive. The relatively small size keeps the car pretty zippy

Read that as well. Impressive by Tesla but the numbers are very different in terms of stock, dealer lots and the Tesla having a lot of buzz because it's been very tough to get ahold of
