While we have only seen design sketches, concept prototypes and the occasional spy photo, BMW has just announced pricing on its premium, all-electric car. Set to make its world premiere on Monday July 29 in New York, London and Beijing, this compact urban mobility vehicle will be priced at $41,350. Federal and state electric vehicle incentives may reduce the actual purchase price.

Designed specifically to be an all-electric vehicle, the i3 develops 170 HP and a very healthy 184 lb-ft of torque so getting off the line and up to speed should be no problem. The 22 kWh lithium-ion battery package is expected to provide at least 80 miles of range per charge. It features a first-of-its-kind carbon fiber reinforced plastic passenger cell mounted on an all aluminum frame for lightweight strength and rigidity with the same amount of interior space as a 3-series sedan.

The vehicle will come with a home-charging station and can be charged at any Level 2 SAE J1772 public charging station. At a public fast-charging station, a fully depleted battery will be able to be recharged to 80% in just 20 minutes.

We will have more images and information after the the i3’s unveiling on Monday and bring you a driving impression as soon as one is available for testing.
