BMW has created a three-door coupe version of its i3 electric car to help expand its i-family of models.
The i3 Concept Coupe is powered by a BMW electric motor mustering 125kW, equivalent to 168bhp, while peak torque stands at 184lb ft. Although many BMWs will soon be front-wheel drive, the i3 will be RWD. The engine is powered by lithium-ion batteries stored under the i3's floor and it has a potential range of 100 miles.
Like the hatchback, the i3 coupe is again built around a so-called 'Life' module, aka a carbonfibre passenger cell while the mechanicals are held in the 'Drive' module, made out of aluminium. It's so rigid that BMW has been able to do away with a B-pillar.
A production version of the new model is likely to go on sale before the end of next year.
