The three-door car will be shown this week at the New York International Auto Show. At BMW they see it completely. “The electric motor contributes to the unmistakable go-kart feeling that the small British car has gained worldwide popularity,” they say. There is, however, bad news: you will not be able to buy this car.
Worse: he can only travel a maximum of 100 kilometers per hour. Well, you could say that this is historically accurate, but even for [MINI] concepts, that is slow. We do not have that much. It is also more a statement with a nice PR-hook, something to indicate that BMW really intends to put in all electric motors. Still a shame: a nice little electric car with a nice range would please many people.
