The German based automaker BMW has recently released another teaser with the final production version of the i3, which will be officially presented to the public on the 29th of July.
The newest creation signed by BMW will enter the company’s new “i” range for electric and hybrid vehicles and it’s named the i3. The model in question is being teased today, probably for the last time, and the carmaker is also announcing its official unveil, in the final production version, which has been scheduled for the 29th of July. The model in question is based on the concept car with the same name which made its debut back in 2011, during the Frankfurt Motor Show.
The final production version of the BMW i3 is expected to receive shorter rear doors, different front and rear bumpers and a new design for the headlights and taillights. The model in question will be powered by a rear-mounted electric motor, for handling purposes, which will produce a total output of 170 HP (127 kW) and 249 Nm of torque (184 lb-ft). The range of the hatchback should stand at 130 km – 160 km (88 – 99 miles). A range extender version will also be offered, with a 0.65 liter two-cylinder motorcycle engine, which will act as a generator. In this version, the total range will increase to 300 km (186 miles). Prices for the i3 are expected to start at 29,000 euros in Germany.
