BMW is the latest car manufacturer who is interested in producing electric cars, and they have now unveiled two electric concept cars, the BMW i3 and the BMW i8, and whilst the i3 is designed to be like an SUV the i8 will be a hybrid vehicle with an electric motor and a 1.5 liter three cylinder engine.
The BMW i3 will have around 170 horsepower and will have a top speed of 93MPH, so we suspect this one will be designed to be used around town, whilst the i8 will be more of a sports car with a 0-60MPH time of under 5 seconds.
There are no details as when on whether BMW intends to put these two environmentally friendly vehicles into production, but we suspect we will see some sort of electric production vehicle based on these from BMW within the next few years.
