World premiere of the BMW i3 Concept
and BMW i8 Concept at the IAA in Frankfurt
BMW i3 Concept
Frankfurt - At the Frankfurt Motor Show
(IAA), the BMW i brand will present two very special vehicle concepts:
the BMW i3 Concept, which was dubbed the Megacity Vehicle during the
development stage, will be presented as the first purely electrically
powered production car within the BMW Group, targeting the future
challenges of mobility in urban environments, and as the first premium
electric vehicle it interprets the pioneering attributes typical of the
BMW brand. The BMW i8 Concept will be presented as a member of the
latest generation sports cars: progressive, intelligent and innovative.
Its unique plug-in hybrid design combines an internal combustion engine
and an electric drive, resulting in an exceptional driving experience –
with extremely low fuel consumption and emissions.
BMW i is a synonym for visionary vehicles
and mobility services, inspirational design and for a new interpretation
of the premium concept, strongly defined by a commitment to
sustainability. With BMW i, the BMW Group is taking a holistic approach:
with its customised vehicle concepts, sustainability across the entire
the value chain and additional mobility services, BMW i is rewriting the
concept of individual mobility.
