THE world premiere of the BMW i3 Concept Coupe at the Los Angeles Show saw the company’s vision for sustainable high-end motoring with zero local emissions.
The clean-cut and open design showcased by the BMW i3 Concept Coupe represents a new form of urban mobility that makes sustainability awareness an intrinsic part of the premium profile. No prices were disclosed.
The carbon-fibre body’s visual impact is largely shaped by the gracefully flowing coupe roof line and the fresh interpretation of the BMW i “stream flow” design that can be seen in the side window styling, and gives an instant impression of lightness, transparency and streamlined aerodynamic qualities.
On the inside, the sense of spaciousness typical of the BMW i brand is combined with an exclusive lounge-style ambience in the two individual rear seats.
Like the BMW i3 Concept, the Coupe is also propelled by an electric motor developed by the BMW Group, which develops a maximum output of 125 kW/170 hp and peak torque of 250 Newton metres (184 lb-ft), and channels its instantaneous power delivery to the rear wheels via a single-speed transmission.
