Futuristic BMW i3 electric car comes to London

BMW’s highly advanced, all-electric city car, the i3, went on show in full production specification in London recently, in front of high-ranking and influence guests, including Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin MP.

The compact, ultra-modern BMW i3 may be quite small on the outside, but it’s still big enough on the inside to carry four passengers and their luggage, for a distance of over 20 miles, and that’s pretty much perfect for most inner city commutes, and more than enough zero emissions range to get across London.

The new i3 uses state-of-the-art technology to achieve a good level of on-road performance, as well as extending its range between charges, most notably its construction from carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP), which is both very light and very strong.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: “We have to get the conditions right to ensure motorists can comfortably take up the option of electric vehicle motoring and this latest innovation should help to make zero-emission vehicles a more common choice for consumers. In the capital we’ve also introduced Source London, a city-wide public charging network, to make the transition to electric even easier, helping to drive down pollution and improve quality of life.”

The all-new BMW i3 will be delivered to UK customers in November 2013.
