The first undressed image of the BMW i3 was taken at a recent photo shoot. While much of the styling of the front remains-there are some differences in the production car from the more recent i3 Coupe Concept we have seen.
Range anxiety; it\'s what holds many back from buying an electric vehicle and why BMW has done some serious R&D into a range extender for the i3. Truth be told, this is the car we are interested in adding to the stable and not the pure electric model and its not because of range anxiety- it\'s the being prepared mentality we religiously follow.
We\'re back with a quick recap and news and then a look ahead. The Geneva show is hours away and it serves as the perfect backdrop to talk about what BMW will be up to for the rest of the year. Here\'s a quick look at the topics of BimmerCast #69.
The range extension option on the BMW i3 will come from BMW\'s Motorad division as expected. Confirmed via Autonews.com by Herbert Diess, BMW\'s head of R&D, the option should allow the i3 to have a total range of around 250 miles.
The i3 Coupe is such a new shape it can be hard to come to terms with how it will actually look in the real world. That\'s what makes this video so interesting - seeing the little electric car on real roads and among real traffic gives you a good indication of size and proportion.
The i3 Coupe has been somewhat of a revelation for us at BF. Where the previous i3 four door concept was futuristic and compelling in a technological sense, the new coupe is almost sexy. There\'s a aggressive done to the belt-line and front-end that the previous concept seemed to hide. And it\'s also much easier to see a production vehicle behind all the orange paint.
The LA autos how held a couple of surprises for the industry and one for BMW. While i3 Coupe debut has been covered here already, we thought a quick look at the show as a whole (not necessarily focusing on BMW) was worthwhile. So click through and enjoy.
Today is the day that BMW is taking the wraps off of it\'s third BMWi concept - the i3 Coupe. Based on the previous i3 concept, the coupe represents a sportier take on the carbon fiber monocoque concept. Production feels like a real possibility given the design and technology overlap with the existing i3 four door. That said nothing has been officially mentioned around marketing timing. Read on for the full official release.
