Curious what happens when the brand known for building the ultimate driving machine gets into the electric car business? Then you’ll want to watch the world premiere of the BMW i3.
The unveiling of the production BMW i3 will take place exactly two years after the BMW i3 Concept was revealed in Frankfurt, prior to the International Motor Show (IAA). The BMW i3 will launch simulatenously in three continents, presenting a global electric vehicle that’s been purpose-built from the ground up to offer refined BMW performance in an EV.
In each of the three metropolises, BMW Group board members will present the BMW i3 in a live transmission, explaining the development history and technology of this innovative model and showing what form a global solution to the challenges of personal mobility could take. Powered by an electric motor with 170 horsepower, the BMW i3 will have an approximate range of 80 to 100 miles. The BMW i3 will make its public auto show debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
The live stream begins at 7:00 AM EST on July 29, 2013. You can watch it below.
