Now that spyshots
of the BMW i3 have been plenty, it's not difficult to imagine what the production i3 will resemble. That's what Car and Driver's
artist has done here, in this render of an i3 which they call "Scion xD meets the scoundrel pigs from Angry Birds."
The render is somewhat believable, based on current spy photos and the original Megacity render released by BMW (posted below for reference).
Despite being an all electric vehicle, the BMW i3 will have sporty intentions. It's been confirmed to be RWD and "mid-engined" and has all along been advertised as using extensive use of carbon fiber to keep its weight down while maintaining structural rigidity. It will be the world's first volume production car made of lightweight carbon fiber
and is to be built in Leipzig. BMW expects to have the cars produced in "Significant volumes" by 2013, targeting 30,000 annual sales at the get-go.
