After last month we had the opportunity to get in touch the first official details on the new BMW i sub-brand, today, we have the first photos of the new BMW i3, the first model bearing the i badge which will enter the market in 2013.
Benefiting from the LifeDrive architecture, the new BMW i3 promises innovative features such as a a carbon fiber-reinforced plastic cell together with an aluminum chassis and other components, all focused on lightweight and efficiency. For the beginning, BMW plans to build around 30,000 vehicles in the first year.
The first “Born Electric” i model was caught in these spy shots somewhere in a frozen land while BMW was filming most probably a video teaser for i3. These spy shots are very important as are the first pictures that give us key details on the shape and features of the new German eco-friendly model.
The new BMW i3 will be built at the Leipzig factory and the price of the new German model is expected to be around €40,000.
