BMW’s Push into Electric Cars The company is developing an all-new electric vehicle under its Project i. But will battery prices fall enough to make the car a success? Frankfurt — For years, BMW resisted building hybrid cars, believing that more efficient gasoline or diesel models were a smarter bet. But as the hybrid gives way to the all-electric vehicle—at least in the eyes of optimists—the German automaker aims to be at the front of the pack. BMW is spending more than $1 billion to develop a small car for urban drivers that will include an electric-powered version.

2014 BMW i3 Review Small lightweight cutting-edge electric car Styling The all-electric BMW i3 is a marvel of lightweight aerodynamic design and electric efficiency. But, in order to succeed in the marketplace, cars have to appeal on a visual and emotional level. Opinion is divided on whether or not the i3 achieves the level of appeal granted to most Bimmers. Hannah Elliot, Forbes staff writer, said, “It’s not exactly ugly but it doesn’t exactly offer the taut, sporty appeal of a M3 or a Z4, either.” Historically, designers have had a hard time finding an attractive design for a small electric city car—as evidenced by the design of cars like the i3, Spark EV, and Scion iQ EV.

Carbon Fiber Cars BMW’s Electric Automobile Revolution SPIEGEL ONLINE

Carbon Fiber Cars: BMW’s Electric Automobile Revolution Carbon Fiber Cars: BMW’s Electric Automobile Revolution Cars may have conquered the world, but they didn’t do it overnight. Decades after its invention in 1886, the passenger car was still too expensive and too impractical to be anything more than a rare sight on the streets. Gas stations didn’t even exist in those days. The spread of electric cars in the 21st century seems to be proceeding at a similar slow pace. The first models from major manufacturers are now hitting the market, but as a form of transportation, these vehicles face much the same acceptance problem as Gottlieb Daimler’s horseless carriage ...

Related Content BMW s i3 may not be the best looking car around but it s nicer than most Electric cars aren t cool, with the exception of the Tesla Roadster, they are boring to look at and offer a dull driving experience but can the i3 change that? Electric cars aren’t cool. That’s a statement that was true until the introduction of the Tesla Roadster. A sleek and powerful sports car that proved electric power has its place with mainstream performance vehicles. But the thing is, how many will be able to afford one?
