BMW i boss said that a front-drive EV is on its way and that you shouldn’t expect a direct replacement for the i3.
BMW’s focus going forward will reportedly be on PHEV derivatives of current models as well as all-electric new models.
The defect only concerns the high-voltage system, which means the 12-volt-powered steering and brakes will still work.
The new all-electric Mini would be underpinned by BMW’s flexible FAAR platform that allows for a number of different configurations.
Both limited edition i models feature custom exterior and interior touches and will be produced in just 1,200 units.
In addition to these two, Munich is also getting ready to unleash an armada of all-electric i models to the world.
There is no power increase to go with this BMW i3s’ beefier appearance, unfortunately.
The BMW i2 could replace the i3 or even be sold alongside it as an entry-level EV.
Other celebrity attendees include renowned composer and music producers Hans Zimmer.
Of the five EVs tested, the BMW i3s had the biggest range drops at both low and high temperatures.
The days of long recharging times for electric vehicles is slowly coming to an end.
Ironically, the range extender is rendered useless by the thing that made it necessary in the first place: the battery pack.
