BMW i3 and i8 at the IAA 2011
BMW has (me ia) the Concept models BMW i3 and BMW i8 as well as the BMW 1 Series .
The smaller BMW i3 Concept has racy 125kW and drives purely electric. Rather than city E-mobile thought. Optionally gives a range extender (REx) on the i3 Concept to increase the range. Details on the BMW i3 page.
The rather slippery BMW i8 Concept is a plug-in hybrid with 164 kW and 35 km of purely electric mobility. Details on the BMW i8 side.
Both - i3 and i8 - concept cars remind me a bit of a sports shoe design. That may be because I once had such a similar running shoe. But I still think it's stylish. Through the many glass surfaces you can see and see a lot. I'm curious when the two concept cars will be turned into real cars and if the bold color design will remain. Because right now you can not say you have a silver or black car, which is optically distributed fairly evenly with blue accents.
I'm disappointed with the new "one", BMW 1 Series . The two featured colors do not like me at all, that may affect me in addition. The 1 Series, which I used to like to drive as a replacement car (predecessor model), unfortunately became too boring in the rear end. Rundgelutscht, no character in the pants. On the one hand, the headlight eyes have become slit-eyed, on the other hand, he looks like a Japanese frog-eyed cartoon character in the area.
