BMW’s manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) is $41,350, before federal or state incentives, for its all-new i3 electric vehicle. The BMW i3 features a 170-hp hybrid-synchronous electric motor that’s powered by a 22-kWh lithium-ion battery. The vehicle has a range of 80 to 100 miles but the automaker plans to offer an optional two-cylinder gasoline range extender engine, which improves the vehicle’s range to 160 to 180 miles.

The automaker plans to offer a charging station and said the vehicle can charge at any public charging station that uses a Level 2 SAE J1772 charging system. DC fast charging, using the SAE DC Combo-Fast Charger, is another charging option. From a public fast-charging station, BMW said the battery can go from a fully depleted batter to 80 percent of charge in 20 minutes.

The automaker said the vehicle will debut at three simultaneous events in New York, London, and Beijing and arrive in the second quarter of 2014.
