USA: Spotted: BMW i3 Coupe on the LA streets

At the 2012 LA Auto Show BMW debuted a new concept in the i family: BMW i3 Coupe.

The new concept is built atop the i3 four-door variant shown around in the last couple of years at various events around the world, and for the first time, we have a very close look at how the production version of the i3 would look like.

Thanks to the innovative LifeDrive architecture, the development process of the i3 Coupe was shorter than the original i3. The architecture renders the BMW i3 Coupe Concept light, safe, spacious and dynamic, core elements of the new i design language.

The i3 Coupe is propelled by an electric motor which develops a maximum output of 125 kW/170 hp and peak torque of 250 Newton metres (184 lb-ft), and channels its instantaneous power delivery to the rear wheels via a single-speed transmission. The electric motor draws its energy from the lithium-ion storage cells under the floor. Positioning the battery units here has the effect of lowering the centre of gravity considerably, which further adds to the vehicle’s sensationally agile handling.
