BMW released further details on the new models within the i range, a press release issued today telling us that the models would get an additional internal combustion engine. These statements were also made at the Innovation Day held in Munich, today.
The additional internal combustion engines that follows to fit the i models will play the role to provide an extended driving range, the first models to benefit from this feature following to be the i3 and i8.
These statements have been made within the event held in Germany by a BMW official, namely Dr. Christian Schmidt, head of the electric department. Moreover, Schmidt stated that a variety of powertrains will be available for the i range, even if we talk about the plug-in hybrid supercar based on the Vision EfficientDynamics, known as i8 or the electric i3.
We all know that the main problem of the eco-friendly vehicles even if we talk about full EV or plug-in hybrids is the driving range, using an internal combustion engine to get extended autonomy being a clever decision indeed.
