Production BMW i3 Makes Video Debut [Video]
The all-electric i3 is described as a huge step not for BMW but for the automotive world, the reinvention of the urban mobility car.
Following the numerous photos released together at the simultaneous three-pronged reveal event, BMW has also filled us in as to what the i3 looks like on the move.
The five-door hatch has rear-hinging "coach" doors and is built with "naturally treated leather, wood, wool and other renewable and recycled raw materials." Under the skin, BMW has made its first aggressive more into carbon fiber technology.
“Innovation drives change. The i3 is more than just a car. It’s a revolutionary step towards sustainable mobility. It is purpose-built around an electric power train to serve the needs of our megacity customers,” said Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Norbert Reithofer, at the world premiere in New York earlier today.
We'll hold off our verdict on the i3's looks until it's revealed in Frankfurt. But the first impressions are definitely favorable.
