Leaked: Bmw i3 patent drawings hit the Web

Article by Christian A., on June 30, 2013

The first photos with the Bmw i3 patent drawings emerged on the web showing the production version of the small car. As you can see from the photos, the design is similar to the one seen on the i3 Concept that made its debut back in 2011 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Still there are some differences, such as the absence of the see-through door panels, new headlights and taillights.

The new Bmw i3 is expected to make its debut in September at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show and the vehicle will be sold as a full electric model and with a range-extending engine. The rear-mounted electric motor will generate 170 hp (127 kW) and 249 Nm of torque (184 lb-ft).

The i3 will have a range between 130 km and 160 km (88 miles or 99 miles). The range-extending model will use a 0.65 liter, two-cylinder motorcycle engine that will offer a range of 220 km (136 miles). Still, Bmw needs to reveal the official numbers. Pricing will start at around 40,000 euros.
