Yesterday BMW officially launched its first pure electric car, the four seater i3, in London, New York and Beijing.
As of November the BMW i3 shall be sold in Germany, costing EUR 34,950 as a pure electric car, and EUR 39,950 with a range extender that extends the range from 160 km to approximately 300 km.
In view of Germany’s electromobility target of having one million electric cars on Germany’s roads by 2020 and the fact that only about 8,500 electric cars circulate on German roads today, the new i3 may play an important role in getting closer to that target.
