Smaller than the Mini? Called City? Green and BMW? Awesome!
It turns out BMW has more alternative fuels brewing than just clean diesel and hydrogen. BMW is also working on Project i–a code name for a tiny electric car that will launch in 2012 and be smaller than the Mini Cooper, according to Car and Driver. For now, the production version is tentatively named “City.” Essentially, the City will be a three-door hatchback that’s specifically designed to meet California’s ZEV (zero-emissions vehicle) requirements, which kick in beginning in–you guessed it–2012. – from Good Clean Tech
