And i8 and i3 uses a new concept of modular vehicle – «LifeDrive». Developer harmoniously and optimally combines three key points that characterize the new concept car 2018-2019 BMW i3.
- Overcoming long distances at no additional charge;
- Sport inherent electric cars driving dynamics;
- Providing superior safety for the driver and passengers.
