The BMW i3 electric car, which we’ve been eagerly anticipating, is supposed to hit US shores in January 2014. The BMW i3 price is said to be €34,950 — or, in the US, $46,126 (before the federal tax credit, which is up to $7,500, and any other state or municipality EV incentives).

“In addition to a pure-electric model, there is a $2,000 option that will include the range extending two-cylinder 600cc engine,” Gas2 adds. “The engine will work only as a generator and have no direct contact with the drive axle. That is a fairly cheap ‘range doubling’ option.”

Just the other day, we shared approximately 1,001 details about the BMW i3. Jump over there if you want to know everything about the BMW i3. But if you just want a quick summary of the key features and specs, the BMW i3 has:

  • a range of 80 – 100 miles (130 – 160 km) in everyday driving; approx. 12% more in ECO PRO mode; and approx. 12% more than that in ECO PRO+ mode (~125 miles)
  • with the range extender, the car’s maximum range in day-to-day driving to around 160–180 miles (250 – 300 km)
  • 0 to 35 mph (0 – 60 km/h) in ~3.5 seconds, and 0 to 60 mph (0-100 km/h) in ~7 seconds
