[VIDEO] BMW i3 gets a tricky commercial image

BMW has released a new commercial video with the i3 which is showing the electric city hatchback in a whole new light.

The German based automaker BMW has managed to place the i3 into the spotlights once again, this time with the help of a new commercial, which is rather tricky. The “green” Bavarian hatchback is being presented as a perfect city car which has enough power to make you go faster and faster. But things aren’t always what they look like, so you may be in for a surprise. We won’t be spoilers and tell you all about it so you should scroll down and click the play button.

The BMW i3 has been officially introduced back in 2013 and it has what it needs to become the next “Toyota Prius”. The model is taking its power from an electric motor, which is producing a total output of 170 HP (125 kW) and it has a peak torque of 250 Nm (184 lb-ft), sent to the rear wheels through a single-speed transmission. If range is what concerns you, know that BMW is also offering a two-cylinder petrol engine, with 650cc, providing an extra 34 HP, which is acting as a range extender.
