Watch the BMW i3 City Car on ice

BMW’s new i3 city car is a zero emissions electric vehicle set to be released in 2013. It was caught on video recently, and it is definitely a must see. The video shows the car’s rear wheel drive architecture and large but aerodynamic wheels handling snowy roads with surprising ease for such a compact and efficient design.

The i3 city car pushes the solid yet lightweight carbon fibre reinforced frame 0-60 in about 10 seconds, getting 100 miles per charge. The video was taken in Scandinavia, which is where BMW is filming for their “Born Electric” campaign. This sharp looking vehicle is just the beginning for BMW’s new “i” sub brand which will also be featuring the release of the i8 supercar. Not just smart when it comes to quality, handling, and emissions, the i firm is investing in mobile connectivity, with the hopes of radically transforming the way people utilise and interact with transportation by providing smart navigation and parking tools that assist with all aspects of an on the move lifestyle.

This car and those released by the i sub brand are something to keep an eye on. Aside from the i3 city car being a well designed automobile worth looking into by itself, it seems that electric cars like this one will be paving the way for a smarter future on the pavement for the auto industry as a whole.
