The final production version of the BMW i3 is expected to cost around 35, 000 GBP, once the model will make its way onto the market in November.
A production version of the BMW i3 is no longer a surprise for anyone and the announcement was also made just recently by the company’s chief executive, Norbert Reithofer, who also tlked about the new X4, a smaller version of the X6, based on the X3. According to the guys at Auto Express, the final production version of the BMW i3 will cost around 35,000 GBP, once the model will hit the market in November.
The BMW i3’s price suggests that the model will be more expensive than its rivals like the Nissan Leaf, priced from 28,490 GBP, or the range-extender Ampera, which is available at 34,995 GBP. Our source doesn’t say whether the 35,000 GBP price includes the 5,000 GBP deduction thanks to the plug-in car grant of the government.
As a quick reminder, BMW i3 Coupe has been officially unveiled a few months ago, during the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show. The model has a different front fascia, a new rear end, restyled doors and some other tweaks, compared to the regular version. The i3 Coupe Concept is powered by an electric motor with 170 HP (125 kW) and 250 Nm of torque (184 lb-ft). The total range stands at 160 km (100 miles) on a single charge.
