BMW certainly wasn’t first to get into electric cars and electric bikes, but it’s good to see the powerful company getting into them a bit now. Recently, BMW unveiled an updated version of its coming i3 electric car, as well as a new i Pedelec electric bicycle (both just concepts at this point).
“The updated i3 is based on the original concept that was unveiled at last year’s Frankfurt International Motor Show, but with updates to the interior,” Marc Carter of Inhabitat writes. “The i Pedelec (Pedal Electric Cycle) is set up as the perfect complement to the BMW i3. It can be folded up almost in the blink of an eye and there is room for two of them in the trunk of the BMW i3.”
