BMW has announced the official pricing for its new compact electric vehicle called the i3. The i3 will start at $41,350 in the United States. BMW will also charge a $925 transport fee. The base price for the vehicle makes it 27% more expensive than a base version of the 3-series.
In Germany the car will sell for €34,950 working out to about $46,000. The little electric vehicle will be unveiled officially on July 29 at events held simultaneously in New York, London, and Beijing. The car uses an all electric drive train.
The same weight BMW also uses lots of carbon fiber material. BMW also announced that it will be selling the vehicle via the Internet and sales reps to go to customers homes. Select dealers will also be able to sell the i3 directly.
