2014 BMW i3 First Drive on

A Pure Electric Hatchback From Munich

The electric car has long been touted as the future of personal mobility, but its evolution has been anything but straightforward. Held back by battery technology for decades, electric cars have, for the most part, failed to deliver on their nirvana-like promise of zero emissions for the motoring masses.

Other than the outstanding Telsa Model S, no recent electric car conceived for large-scale production has managed to live up to the hype and sales expectations heaped upon it at launch. Think Nissan Leaf, Mitsubishi MiEV and the Renault Zoe in Europe.

The 2014 BMW i3 hopes to change this trend in much the same way Apple altered the mobile telephone landscape with the launch of the iPhone. Read more

BMW i3 spotted during final testing Autocar

BMW s i3 city car caught on camera during final testing, before going on sale in October

BMW s i3 city car has been spotted during final testing in Germany before hitting showrooms in October.

The five-door hatchback, which will be offered with either an all-electric or range-extended powertrain, is expected to cost from £35,000 when it goes on sale later this year. BMW showrooms have already had several models of the i3 on display for customers, and the car was recently seen at London s Motorexpo, but BMW is still giving the car a final shakedown.

This test mule was spotted in southern Germany with minimal camouflage. Most of the design of the i3 is already known. including the fact that the clear doors shown on early prototypes have been replaced with more standard options, but in these pictures the side window line is disguised, suggesting ongoing development.

Order books for the car will open towards the end of this month, with the range-extender model getting a significant price premium over the pure-electric version, at £38,000. Such a cost will place the i3 at a price point above rivals like Nissan s Leaf and the Chevrolet Volt. Based around BMW s Life Module concept, the i3 has a carbonfibre reinforced plastic body structure and rides on a chassis made of almost pure aluminium.

The production version weighs 1270kg, with dimensions to rival the Mini One. The electric motor in the i3 is a 168bhp unit with 184lb ft of torque. BMW claims the i3 can acheive 0-37mph in 3.9sec and 0-62mph in 7.9sec.

Maximum speed is limited to 93mph.
