The BMW i3 Coupe Concept was officially presented to the public at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show.
After it started its public life a few weeks ago when the German based automaker has announced its debut at the North American automotive event, and with the model being unveiled in some official images yesterday (November, 28), the first live images with the BMW i3 Coupe Concept brake cover and reveal the model in its new element. The BMW i3 Coupe Concept is getting a modified front fascia, a different rear end, restyled doors and some other minor tweaks, compared to the regular version of the i3.
The cabin of the i3 Coupe has received brushed aluminum accents, leather / wool seats, eucalyptus wood trim, a digital instrument cluster, the iDrive infotainment system and two individual rear seats. Power to the model is being provided by an electric motor generating 170 HP (125 kW) and 184 lb-ft of torque (250 Nm). The lithium-ion battery pack is allowing the i3 Coupe to achieve a range of 100 miles (160 km) on a single charge. The BMW i3 Coupe Concept is 3,964 mm long, 1,555 mm tall and 1,768 mm wide, riding on a 2,570 mm wheelbase.
