BMW will reportedly launch redesigned i3 electric vehicle in 2017
In a recent report (via Reuters), German publication Welt am Sonntag has disclosed that bigwig automaker BMW is planning to launch a redesigned next-generation BMW i3 electric vehicle in 2017.
According to the report, the redesigned i3 electric vehicle being planned by BMW for launch next year will boast an updated design of both its front and rear ends, and a longer range as compared to the previous i3 models.
The redesign of the new i3 model has evidently been planned by BMW to attract potential buyers who have seemingly been put off by the somewhat boxy appearance of the company's current i3 electric vehicle.
Moreover, as per the Welt am Sonntag report, BMW's next-generation i3 model will also be equipped with new battery technology, which will essentially enable a longer range of the vehicle.
The report, without specifying the exact range of the next-generation BMW i3 model, has noted that the new i3 will apparently have nearly 50 percent longer range than the current-generation i3 which, on a full charge, can go for 114 miles, extendable to up to 180 miles via a 'Range Extender.'
