Official launch is set for next week
If you follow the automotive world, BMW, or electric vehicles in particular you may be familiar with the
. This car set to make its official debut next week, but ahead of that official debut a slew of images have now hit the internet. Images of the car have been seen online in the past, but those vehicles wore camouflage to disguise some of the lines of the vehicle.
The new images that have leaked are of the car sans its camouflage. We already know that the car will start at $41,350 for the full electric version when it goes on sale in the United States next year.
BMW will no doubt pitch the vehicle as a more upscale alternative to other small, electric-only vehicles like the

The reason why a lot of folks consider the Volt as an EV is because for months on end it drives like an EV. The last time I filled up my 2013 Volt was sometime in May! If you can keep your daily trips under 40 miles then a tank of gas will last an entire year. (Volt will burn through the entire tank at the 1 year mark to avoid gas from going stale, if you're smart you gradually use up the gas over a year with some slightly longer than 40 mile trips) The car will also burn about 1/2 cup (I'm not kidding) of gas every month to keep the engine from seizing from non-use. My current last fill-up would have been from April if I hadn't taken my car on a 5,000 mile cross-country trip back in May. This is why I really like this car. It's an EV in regular use around town (keep it under 40 and it's full electric) and without a second thought I can take it across the country by fuelling it with gas.
