Based on the BMW i3, the i3 Coupe drops two doors but carries the same powertrain. The system, which sits on the rear axle, produces 170-hp with a maximum torque of 184 lb-ft. That should give the BMW i3 Coupe Concept the ability to go from 0 to 37 mph in under 4 seconds and from 0 to 62 mph in less than 8 seconds. On a full charge, the BMW i3 Coupe Concept can travel a total range of 80 to 100 miles.
