Europe: BMW i3 Electric Car To Have 100-Mile Range, $35,000 Pricetag: Report

Development of BMW’s all-electric i3 hatchback, the car formally known as the Megacity Vehicle, is well underway as we saw last winter when these prototypes were spotted. Apart from a few initial details, such as a four-seat layout, carbon fiber construction and an electric drivetrain, there’s little else known about one of BMW’s most important models of the decade.

Starting off with what we know, the BMW i3 will be a zero-emission urban car for the world’s metropolitan regions. When it comes to the choice of materials, the company is broaching entirely new territory. This is because weight plays a pivotal role in the range achievable by electrically driven vehicles. Not surprisingly, there will be plenty of lightweight carbon fiber in its construction–you may recall BMW is building a new carbon-fiber plant together with composites expert SGL Group specifically for the i3.
