BMW has recently launched the brand new i3 to Hong Kong, where its future customers will have to pay HK500,000 before they will be able to get their hands on the “green” model.
The fact that the BMW i3 has received only a four-star safety rating during the latest Euro NCAP test session didn’t seem to affect the sales of the vehicle as this is enjoying more success than ever. The newest market to receive the BMW i3 is Hong Kong, where the cheapest version of the vehicle will set you back for HK500,000, or the equivalent of 64,000 USD.
The new BMW i3 has been officially presented to the public during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, back in September, in its final production form. The model in question is getting a 170 HP (125 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque electric motor, mated to a single-speed transmission, which is sending power to the RWD. This can be backed up by a range extender, a 650cc two-cylinder petrol burner, which will provide an extra 34 HP. You can check out the new BMW i3 in the photo gallery posted below. Keep in mind that the images have been taken during its Frankfurt unveil, a few months ago.
