BMW i3 will do 220km a charge
BMW is claiming that its i3 electric compact model will have a range of up to 220km on a single battery charge.
And it will have a range extender – an optional two-cylinder motorcycle petrol engine and generator – which will boost the range to 350km.
The i3 will make its production debut at the Frankfurt motor show in September and is expected to go on sale by the end of the year.
No word on pricing yet but BMW is quoted as saying it has already received several hundred advance orders.
