    First time I hear about this potential 2019 addition to the BMW range of a 100% BEV: a 4GT with a 70-90 kWh battery pack. 500 kms/310 miles of autonomy (NEDC. certainly..) for a price targeted under €50k (remember, in EU this should be ~20% included...) to be competitive with Model ≡...

    Intriguing, no? (sorry the article is in French)

    Any of you Model ≡-expecting, i3-owning friends interested, in the interim? ;)

    Weird... I either missed this one month ago, or for some reason I did not register the iNext program was solely hydrogen-based...
    Maybe because it does not much sense to pursue the 'fool cell' path (as Elon calls it) ?! :confused:

    As much as I historically liked BMW, this exemplifies why I don't believe in PHEVs... 9 kWh battery, 16 miles of range... this is essentially a 'fossil' car with a little juice... :rolleyes:

    2018 i3... nice wheels and nice interior (IMHO) for this traditionally BMW aficionado... yet still can't get over that odd exterior design and range, even with rEX, still not up to par... :rolleyes:

    Just saw this in Wired. Not sure that a BMW concept car unveiled at a motor show is '...at Elon's gates' just yet. And the 200mile range i3 is a hybrid rather than a pure EV. Albeit an electric-petrol hybrid rather than a petrol-electric.

    "BMW...revealed the i Vision Dynamics, a four-door electric car it says will offer a range of 373 miles and performance specs that rival Tesla’s (a top speed of 120 mph and a 0 to 60 mph sprint in four seconds)"
