Along with the launch of the i3 in Sofia, the official ordering guide is available for all the US costumers. The basic price of the 2014 BMW i3 starts at $41,350 and all of you looking for the i3 Rex (Range Extender) will have to shell out $45,200.
At the exterior, the Arravani Grey and Capparis White colors are standard, but if you want some special metallic colors like Ionic Silver, Laurel Grey, Andesite Silver or Solar Orange, you will pay an extra $550.
