New reports have just provided some more info on their latest effort, the i3 electric city car. As of course, we already know that the i3 will have a rear-mounted electric motor with the batteries strategically placed under the floor. But now, a source deep inside BMW HQ in Munich decided to released some more figures.

The new i3 will have a base sticker of around $35,000 and will offer 150 hp fully electric. Also expected is a range of about 160 miles and top speed of 100mph.

Luggage size was also released and is said to be larger than expected at 14.1 cubic feet combined with both front and rear compartments.

BMW said that it will produce 40,000 i3s per year from the new plant in Leipzig and will feature extensive use of carbon fiber to keep the weight down.

To complement BMW’s efforts in sustainable motivation, they’ll also be introducing a new wireless recharging network that will be released this upcoming June starting in Berlin.

    I have to disagree with Amirshan, i think this car has potential, looks very spacious, and I am expecting soon, so the extra room would help

    It’s going to be a great commuter car, however they have the range wrong, it will have a 100 MPC range, not 160.

    looks similar to the fiat 500

    Great to have such a toy electric, a hybrid version definitely makes sense as well to expand range
