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 BMW i3. 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 Ford Focus Electric ($35,200) and the Nissan Leaf ($27,700).


The little electric car has a 168 hp synchronous electric motor and a top speed of 93 mph. There will be a range extended version of the car with a gasoline engine, but pricing has been unannounced on that version.

The thing that annoys me is there's no place on the dashboard where you can put your smartphone where it won't slide off when you're driving. That would give your smartphone a much better place to transmit and receive from when you're using the voice navigation to get somewhere.
