Famous American actress Anne Hathaway has been recently spotted in a BMW i3, around Los Angeles.
Electric and hybrid vehicles are “thing” when it comes to celebrities and the trend was opened by the Toyota Prius a few years ago, only to be soon replaced by the Tesla Model S. Now, owning a BMW i3 if you’re rich and famous seems to be the right choice and Anne Hathaway didn’t think about this too much, as she was spotted on the passenger’s seat of such a vehicle. The i3 was being driven by her husband around Los Angeles. We’re not sure yet if the couple has bought the model.
The BMW i3 is powered by an electric motor, with 170 HP (125 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque, which is mated to a single-speed transmission, sending power to the rear-wheel drive. The driving range stands at 130 – 160 km (81 – 99 miles) and this can be extended through a 650cc two-cylinder petrol engine, which is providing an extra 34 HP. The final production version of the BMW i3 has been officially unveiled to the public during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, in September.
