This car is an updated version of BMW’s three-year-old electric hatchback. The car’s overall look is sportier now and it promises more power, range and comes fitted with an upgraded wheel and tyre package.
This car will be the first of four models that will make their public debut at the upcoming Frankfurt motor show. The more powerful synchronous electric motor now makes 184hp and 270Nm of torque.
There’s more equipment on the inside too. In the Sport driving mode, you have much more freedom with adjusting the steering and throttle. The same 94Ah lithium ion battery, with a capacity of 33.2kWh, will do duty in this car, but it is claimed to provide both models with a maximum range of between 234km and 253km.
The Car comes fitted with a new front bumper, lights that feature a new thin line of LED units that act as blinkers, a black roof, revised sills, lightly altered tail lamps graphics and a revised rear bumper. The upholstery inside is new, along with a new 10.3 inch infotainment display featuring a new tile-based operating system.
