You’ve heard about the Nissan Leaf.

You’ve heard about the Chevy Volt.

And you’ve now heard about the Mitsubishi i MiEV.

But have you heard about BMW’s electric cars? Let’s chat about them.

The video above is for the BMW i3 and i8. It’s a little bit Euro-overblown, so it makes me chuckle, but the cars themselves are darn cool.

I’m going to talk about the i8 in my next post, so let’s focus on the i3 for now.

Here is the a video specifically about the i3. It has no audio and it’s somewhat action-free, but it gives you a good look at the design.

Here is what Wikipedia has to say on the i3:

The BMW i3 is an urban electric car under development by BMW. The i3 is part of BMW’s “Project i” and is being planned as a new brand, BMW i, sold separately from BMW or Mini. The i3 is expected to go into mass production in 2013. The i3 is expected to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2011. BMW plans to showcase a BMW i3 prototype during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

The i3 will be BMW’s first zero emissions mass produced vehicle, and BMW also expects to be the first company to launch a volume production vehicle on the market featuring carbon-fiber reinforced plastic to improve the vehicle’s energy consumption. The BMW i3 is expected to be priced in the U.S. at around US$35,000.

The range is about 100 miles–same as the Nissan Leaf’s. The price does not seem too crazy, either. All in all, this car could be quite a contender in the EV market in the US. It’s like a nice family car but quite stylish at the same time.

The BMW i3 is a concept car, and thus there are very few units in the US at this time. Should you happen to have one you’d like to transport, however, we will be very happy to ship it anywhere in the 48 contiguous states with our enclosed auto shipping service. It’s the best in the business!
