New version of BMW i3 electric car to be introduce in 2017

Monday, 28 November 2016


FRANKFURT: German luxury carmaker BMW plans to launch a new version of its i3 electric car next year with a longer range and revamped design.

BMW will rework the front and rear of the i3 and equip the car with a new battery to increase its range substantially beyond the current 300km maximum, the paper said, adding that the increase would be below 50%.

BMW has been torn about whether to accelerate development of new electric cars given its expensive early investment has only resulted in lacklustre sales, with 25,000 i3s delivered last year.

To help improve sales, BMW has already increased the battery range of its i3 city car by 50% this year.
