BMW has released new images with a prototype version of the i3, which is being tested in cold weather.
The BMW i3 is probably more awaited than the new M3, along with its sportier “brother”, the i8, and after making its way to the most automotive events in concept form back in 2012, the model is now entering our news once again, this time with the help of some official spy photos. Yes, it’s not a mistake, BMW released images with a prototype version of the i3, which is being tested in cold weather. The model in question has camouflage on its body so its new lines aren’t visible just yet.
Additional details on the BMW i3 prototype in question remain unknown for the moment but as a quick reminder, the concept version of the model came with an electric motor, generating 170 HP (125 kW) and 250 Nm of torque (184 lb-ft), which is allowing the “green” vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.9 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 150 km/h (93 mph). The model can travel up to 160 km (100 miles) on a single charge.
