BMW's i3 Concept Coupe has made its European premiere in Geneva, showcasing a very ambitious vision of the future of driving. The vehicle highlights the German car manufacturer's commitment to crafting high-performance and powerful motors that are all at once environmentally friendly.
Constructed using BMW's innovative eDrive technologies, the concept car's powertrains, which are comprised of an electric motor and lithium-ion battery, help make this a unique driving experience.
BMW said that this model's technology was a "response to the social, ecological and economic challenges of our times".
One of the highlights of this concept car is its bespoke high-voltage lithium-ion battery. Specifically, it is not as affected by variations in temperature as other similar batteries.
"The technology behind this is an intelligent heating/cooling system which always keeps the battery at an optimal operating temperature," BMW explained. "This improves the everyday practicality, stable performance and life expectancy of the battery."
It is certainly aimed at addressing one of the biggest challenges facing electric vehicles – a short driving range, which is to say, they need to be regularly recharged.
