Love this model and was very excited to see what they have in-store for the 2015 model year! The BMW i3 has been officially released as of today, simultaneously worldwide in London, New York City and Beijing.
The city car is powered by an electric motor producing the equivalent of 170 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. The rear-wheel-drive, 2,635-pound car can sprint to 62 mph (100 kph) in 7.2 seconds and can achieve a range as high as 118 miles. An optional 650cc two-cylinder gasoline engine is available as a range extender for a combined 186-mile range.
