BMW has recently announced the official starting price of the new i3, once it will be introduced to Australia in mid-November.
Australians looking into the new BMW i3 will have some waiting to do because the model in question will become available for order in mid-November, in the Pacific country, for a starting price of 63,900 AUD. The BMW i3 has been shown in Sydney for the first time, along with the more expensive i8 “green” sports car, and, even if its Australian launch may seem delayed, thanks to its popularity, people wait up to six months in other markets before getting their hands on this model.
As you probably remember, the BMW i3 has been officially presented to the public back in 2013. The model in question is the company’s smallest “green” vehicle and it’s already available for order on the Old Continent and in the North American market. Power is being provided by an electric motor, which is producing 170 HP (125 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque. This is mated to a single-speed transmission which is sending power to the rear-wheel drive. The electric motor can receive a range extender, in the shape of a 650cc two-cylinder petrol unit.
