Frankfurt a.M. / Munich, Germany - July 29, 2011

The BMW Group showcases its visions of future mobility in the shape of the BMW i3 Concept and BMW i8 Concept studies.

Unveiled for the first time, these concept vehicles provide a glimpse of the first electrically powered production cars from the new BMW i sub-brand, due to be launched as the BMW i3 in 2013 and the BMW i8 in 2014.

“We are marking another milestone in the history of the BMW Group. As Chairman of the Board and an engineer myself, I am very proud of this project,” declared Norbert Reithofer, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, at Friday’s premiere of the two vehicles in Frankfurt.
“As the world’s leading premium car manufacturer, our aim is to offer customers purpose-built electric-drive cars as well,” he added.

With its zero-emission electric drive and a range of approximately 150 kilometres, the BMW i3 Concept
has been specifically developed for use in an urban environment, its dynamic 125 kW electric motor and rear-wheel drive ensuring BMW-style dynamic handling.

Thanks to its innovative LifeDrive architecture featuring a carbon passenger cell, the BMW i3 Concept combines an extremely low weight of 1,250 kilograms with optimal interior space and the highest crash safety levels.

With four seats and a 200-litre luggage compartment, this vehicle is fully suited for everyday use.


Draeger: a revolution in car design


“This vehicle will mark the launch of the first volume-produced car featuring bodywork largely made of carbon. It’s a revolution in automotive design,” stressed Klaus Draeger, Member of the Board responsible for Development.

The application of this new CFRP technology allows a weight reduction, compared to a conventional electric car, of between 250 and 350 kilos, and that means more dynamic handling coupled with a greater range.

The BMW i3
does the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in less than eight seconds, while a high-speed charger achieves an 80% battery charge in just an hour.

Thanks to the emission-free drivetrain and a value added chain designed to be sustainable all along the line, life cycle emission figures for the BMW i3 are at least a third lower than for a highly efficient combustion-engine car.

If the BMW i3 is run on electricity from renewable sources, the figures improve by well over 50%
.


BMW i8 Concept: new-generation sports car


The BMW i8 Concept goes from 0 to 100 km/h in less than five seconds and boasts fuel consumption of under three litres per 100 km.

Its plug-in hybrid drive with a system output of 260 kW allows a range of up to 35 kilometres in electric mode
– sufficient for most everyday journeys.

For more dynamic driving or out-of-town routes, a high-performance three-cylinder petrol engine also comes into play
.

“The BMW i8 Concept is the sports car for a new generation – pure, emotional and sustainable,” Draeger underlined.

The BMW i3 dynamic, high-performance electric motor offers an entirely new level of emission-free driving pleasure. Electric motors can rev much higher than combustion engines, achieving RPMs of more than 12,000 without strain.

, as reflected in the fact that it has been the supersector leader in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes for the sixth year running.
