    BMW’s next gen i3 will come in 2017 with a design refresh and up to 50% more range, sources say

    At a time when almost all automakers are announcing upgrades to their mid-range electric vehicles under their 2017 models, like VW with the e-Golf or Ford with the Focus Electric, you will not hear about an upgrade to BMW’s i3 since it was actually announced earlier this year – when they introduced their new 33 kWh battery pack upgrade.

    It was a welcomed upgrade, but not the next generation design refresh that people have been waiting for. Now sources say that the German automaker is working on a design refresh for the 2018 BMW i3 to be released next year and it will again feature a range increase – up to 50%. more…

    Amusing to see I beat Elektrek by almost 24 hours reporting the news from the Welt am Sonntag article on the new i3... LOL... :)

    More of the same... don't mean to offend those among you who like the i3... (plus, remember, I have long been a fan of the 'Freude am Fahren' Bavarian brand...) but isn't the '...even sportier' a tad far-fetched...? Or did the writer confuse it with the i8?... :p
    Anyways, again, all steps in the right direction... 2017 will be THE year of the BEVs...
