BMW i3 and i8 unveiled

BMW launched its "i" series car at Frankfurt today. The range at the moment consists of two model namely i3 and i8. i3 is the compact city car powered by electric and capable of 250km range for single charge. It seats 4 and have 250 litre of luggage space. Meanwhile i8 is the evolved BMW Vision EfficientDynamic concept. It continues to come with electric propulsion coupled to small turbodiesel engine.

Full gallery here of i3 can be found here.

These cars are slated for production by 2013. Looking at the galleries, the cars are still way too futuristic to be implement in their current design. Do expect some tone down for the sake of practicality, safety and cost reason.
