The Germans at BMW announced their plans for the upcoming electric and hybrid models part of the i range. We talk about the i3 and i8, models which will hit the market quite soon, the BMW i3 being actually scheduled to go on sale this July.
BMW will sell their new models through a wide network of dealers, a total number of 46 only in the UK.
The new BMW i3 will be priced from £35,000 and will be available in two configurations. The first one represents a pure electric model while the second one benefits from a 0.65-liter engine which will act like a range extender.
The sportier BMW i8 will be a more exclusive model carrying a price tag of around €150,000.
It will benefit from a gasoline engine alongside an electric unit, a setup good enough to ensure a 0-100 km/h acceleration time of less than five seconds.
