Report – BMW i3 Will Offer 100-mile Range

BMW Megacity Vehicle

According to the guys over at Car and Driver, the BMW i3 (formerly known as the Megacity Vehicle) will offer a 100-mile range. The company’s first production all-electric vehicle will have a price tag of around $35,000. The car is set to go on sale in Europe sometime in 2013 and later on in North America.

It will feature a rear-mounted electric motor that generates 150 hp (112 kW), enough for a top speed of 100 mph. If the 100-mile range won’t be enough for you, BMW is also reportedly working on a range-extended version that will come with a conventional internal combustion engine that will act as a generator.
