New BMW Megacity Renderings

From homepage:
Quote:
Andrei Arvarvarii has produced this rendering of the future all electric BMW Megacity Vehicle. Based on the official BMW released Megacity concept image, this interpretation seems to inject some production practicality, such as a higher roof, door handles, smaller wheels, and antenna. But overall, it stays true to the BMW teaser image.

source http://www.topspeed.com/cars/car-new...e-ar94497.html

I like how the rendering looks in the second pic

Based on this render released by BMW

2007 BMW M-Roadster Sounds like the old M-Coupe, but a bit more refined and doesn't loose its rear end for no reason
2008 BMW 135i My favorite of my BMWs currently. So far very happy to leave it bone stock.

I could pimp that back and forth to work during the week...

Looks like an angry Mini. I'd drive a Mini if it wasn't so "cutesy" makes me want to throw up.

Well they've managed to make it look like a Kia. Does "production practicality" mean take a relatively sleek design make it stubby and cheap? Just look at the fenders for example and tell me how that's an improvement.

...will the Megacity definately be branded a "BMW" ... I have a feeling they will bring back the iSetta as a stand alone brand? maybe for the e-city line..

Not bad.


I feel though that if my wife and I were to have a small efficiency minded car, I would need a H2 as a second car just to get the stuff done I would want.


No runs to Home Depot in that car.

Doesn't exactly scream BMW to me. Kind of confused as to what it is...
