BMW i3 Electric Car: Motorcycle Engine Range-Extender For 250 Mile Range

If you’re a fan of electric cars, there’s a fair chance BMW’s i3 urban electric car is one of the vehicles you’re most looking forward to in 2013.

When it goes on sale in the fourth quarter of 2013, it’s set to be one of the most advanced vehicles on the road–not least for its lightweight carbon-fiber reinforced plastic chassis.

BMW is also releasing further details on the range-extended option for the i3, allowing drivers just that little extra range for longer trips.

The company hinted a while back that the gasoline-aided version of the i3 would use a twin-cylinder motorcycle engine.

The tiny unit, expected to be an inline-twin of around 600cc, will have no mechanical connection to the wheels, and will be used to turn a generator, extending the car’s range once the battery has reached a lower limit.
