Last week BMW showed its vision for the future of motoring as illustrated by its i3 family hatchback and i8 sports car, the first of a range of vehicles that will become its new eco sub-brand ‘i’, and will go on sale in 2013. Both cars are clean sheet designs, designed from the tyres up with the key focus on maximising their potential for environmental sustainability. Built using advanced, lightweight construction methods more commonly utilised in motorsport. The resulting cars are quite unlike any BMW yet seen.
