BMW this week released the first images of the small, four seat, all-electric car it plans to produce by 2013. The car is part of BMW’s urban mobility project, called “Megacity”.
Adrian van Hooydonk, BMW’s design chief, said the design would be sporty and stylish —and that it would not resemble the Toyota Prius.
Expect a 134-horsepower electric motor, providing a top speed of around 90 miles per hour.
The Megacity is BMW’s first vehicle intended for production, rather than prototype testing.
