BMW i3 electric car details revealed, 0-60 in 7sec, 100+ mile electric range

Finally released details of the BMW i3 show show it’s a zippy little electric car, with advanced driver assist features.

The BMW i3 is that companies first official foray into electric cars. The BMW ActiveE and the Mini-E before it were both experiments in electric cars, leased to customers to gain real world data that’s supposed to be folded into the i3 and other future electric and plug-in hybrid cars BMW is developing. On Wednesday, BMW unveiled specifications and pictures of the BMW i3 ahead of its debut later this year.

The BMW i3 is the company’s first car designed from the ground up to be electrically powered. They claim it’s the first ever “premium car” to be designed explicitly as an electric, but we think Tesla might want to quibble about that claim. The vehicle architecture is based around a carbon-fiber reinforced plastic passenger cell. The electric motor, power electronics, battery pack and related components were developed by the BMW eDrive team. It also has BMW ConnectedDrive driver assistance and mobility services.
