2014 BMW i3

 Still wearing some camouflage to hide the lower window shape, mostly.
But this is the best view I've seen so far of the new all electric BMW.
A range extender small 2 cylinder engine will be available as an option.
As you can see, they stayed pretty close to the 2nd concept. Even though that one had only 2 doors.

A lot's been lost in translation, and now it just looks goofy/dowdy.

One would have to be a special kind of BMW 'loyalist' (read: stupid) to pay anywhere near some 50k for this thing.

paying 50k for this BMW is not Quite as stupid as paying $30k for a Prius or Nissan Hybrid (assuming this HANDLES like a BMW and not as sloppy/choppy/noisy/stiff as a Toyota Prius.) Given BMW's "free maintenance for the first 100k miles" it will no doubt be MUCH cheaper to keep then the problem-laden Honda or Toyota Hybrids-- or the Prius electric for that matter. I wonder if replacement batteries will be in the Prius's $5k-$7 range???

These cars would make great learner cars in Milton Keynes because the seat position is high and visabilty of the road ahead is good/

These cars would be great for teaching driving lessons in Milton Keynes as the seat position is high, so the pupils view of the road will be greater.
