Recently we showed you a video of the new BMW i8 (previously known as the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics) undergoing some cold winter testing. We now have a video of the new BMW i3 (previously known as the BMW Megacity) also undergoing some winter testing and by the looks of it the i3 will be a fun electric-vehicle.

The BMW i3 will make its market debut in 2013. So far, BMW said it plans on producing 30,000 units annually.

According to reports, the BMW i3 will be powered by a 35 kWh lithium-ion battery, which will fuel a 150-hp electric-motor that will turn the rear-wheels. On a full charge, the BMW i3 is expected to allow a driving range of 100 miles with a top speed of 95 mph.
