We’ve mentioned the BMW i a few times, but this is the first time that BMW has unveiled the new sub-brand… Here’s the very first look at the BMW i, which was unveiled at the Frankfurt International Auto Show.
Above is the BMW i3 and the BMW i8 in a concept study form, providing the first glimpse of the styling of two vehicles which could prove very significant. BMW board member Klaus Draeger calls it a “revolution in automotive design.”
The i3’s concept city car design currently offers a range of approximately 150 kilometers using a 125 kW electric motor, said BMW, with four seats and a 200-liter luggage compartment.
Designed as a luxury sports car, it offers a top speed of 250 km/h and a 0-100km/h time of under five seconds, although at a more temperate speed the i8 will run for up to 35 kilometers on all electric drive before the hybrid system kicks in.
