See on Scoop.itUtilityTree

In a glitzy ceremony that featured a New Years’ Eve-style countdown in three cities around the world, BMW AG unveiled its all-electric i3 this week.

UtilityTree‘s insight:

For those who want more than 80 or 90 miles for their investment, the company also said it is offering a range extender. By mounting a 650cc two-cylinder engine adjacent to the electric motor and above the rear axle, BMW said it could boost the car’s maximum range to nearly 180 miles. The optional range extender is expected to push the price tag to about $45,000.
