As these leaked images show, BMW's first electric offering from its sub brand BMWi remains almost the same as the i3 Coupe Concept in terms of interior and exterior styling features.

The i3 consists of a carbon fiber reinforced passenger cabin, known as the Life Module and an aluminum chassis housing the drivetrain/batteries dubbed the Drive module.
