BMW officially prices its new electric vehicle

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.

Car Review: 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe

Jul 30 2014 3:03pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

LITCHFIELD HILLS, CT — If one were to judge the people here in this rolling, semi-rural part of New England — with colonial houses and American flags flying from verandas a common sight — solely by the type of car driven, the inordinate number of Subarus seen on the road might suggest they are pragmatic, preferring something sensible for the cold, snowy winters. If these hardy, practical types would like to fly more of a freak flag this coming winter, Cadillac has something e ...

New drifting world record set in Toyota GT86

Jul 30 2014 2:05pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Europe, Videos, Scion, Toyota We have entered a drifting arms race. Last year, BMW smashed the Guinness World Record for the longest drift by hanging the tail out for 51.3 miles around a wet skid pad in an M5 at the BMW Performance Driving School in South Carolina. That beat the previous milestone of nearly seven miles. Now, Bimmer's record is up in smoke as well and is in the possession of a ...

BMW shows how ridiculously fun roundabouts can be

Jul 30 2014 1:33pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Many motorists are somehow confused by roundabouts. You know, those infernal traffic-calming contraptions that involve you going around in circles and checking your blind spots profusely to avoid a collision while making sure you don’t miss your turn? As it turns out, if you block off the flow of traffic and you’re in the right car, they can be especially fun. Just ask BMW, which did exactly that in one roundabout in South Africa. The end result? Plenty of drifting, burnt rubber and the dist ...

BMW seems excited about its new M235i. The automaker wants you to be excited about the car as well. Since we're dealing with a powerful, rear-wheel-drive coupe, it makes sense that to get you excited about the car, it might want to show one getting extremely sideways. BMW is think ...

Video: BMW M235i Coupes Gather for a Driftmob in Cape Town

Jul 30 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

BMW’s teaser showing what appeared to be a high-performance version of the 2 Series coupe turned out to be nothing more than an M235i, and not the M2 we were hoping. Fortunately, the photo was actually previewing a two-minute video showing BMW’s latest driftmob in Cape Town, South Africa. What’s a driftmob, you may ask? Well, it basically consists of several vehicles, in this case M235i coupes, drifting together based on a spe ...
