Luckily, previous videos, of spy shots and numerous auto appearances by i3 concepts means built up quite a knowledge on the i3 already, so a video of depressingly people jumping up and down in a shoot isn’t all we have to go on.

we know is that the i3 is the first mass-production electric car by BMW, knowledge gleaned from the E and BMW ActiveE field tests.
