BMW releases photos of its i3 city car undergoing winter testing via Facebook

BMW recently had decided to build more anticipation for their latest sustainable mobility model, the up and coming BMW i3 city car.

No additional details were shared, other than the fact that BMW is still testing its i3 car, as can be seen in the shared photos of the i3 motoring about on a winter test track.

From what is known so far, the i3 will feature a plug-in electric hybrid powertrain that consists of a 170hp electric motor that also churns out 184 lb-ft of torque. 0-60 passes by in 7.9 seconds while the i3 is estimated to travel around 80-100 miles on a single charge.

To alleviate the concerns with range anxiety, BMW will also offer an optional range-extending engine that’s supposedly a carryover item from one of BMW’s two-cylinder motorcycles.
