BMW extended his electric ”i” range with another model, based on the future i3, already exposed at the european events. We are talking about the new i3 Coupe Concept showcased at this year Los Angeles Auto Show. The car loses two doors but keeps the same electric engine as the current i3 five-door variant.

“The state-of-the-art, clean-cut and open design showcased by the BMW i3 Concept Coupe represents a pioneering form of urban mobility that makes sustainability awareness an intrinsic part of the premium profile. Beyond this, the three-door model employs the design idiom that has been created especially for the BMW i cars to convey an undeniable sense of dynamism and driving pleasure”
, BMW said in the official launch statement.
The zero emissions engine sits on the rear axle and develops 170 horsepower and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque. It is powered by a lithium-ion battery which enables the model to travel up to 160 km on a single charge. The power offered by the electric engine, may sound poor, but it enables the BMW i3 Coupe Concept to go from 0 to 37 mph in under 4 seconds and from 0 to 62 mph in less than 8 seconds.
The battery can be fully recharged in 6 hours from a standard power socket and can reach 80 percent charge in just one hour with a high-speed charger package.

As its five-door sibling, the new I3 Coupe Concept is going to see daylight.
