i3 videos leaked

BMW i3 Spy Shot Video

BMW has leaked “spy shots” of its all-electric i3. The German car manufacturer is resolutely serious about bringing the electric car and its plug-in hybrid sister, the i8 into the US, ahead of its local German competitors.

It’s funny looking back to a few years ago when German car manufacturers wholeheartedly booed electric cars preferring hydrogen and fine-tweaking diesel. A few years later, Audi introduced its stunning e-tron, Mercedes developed the A segment to carry batteries and more, but the real surprise came from BMW. BMW quietly developed the i3 and i8 after a few stints asking AC Propulsion to modify some MINIs and now testing a few ActiveE Series 1 electric cars.
