BMW Opens First i-Store Electric Car Showroom in London
BMW hosted a preview of its first i Store, a London-based showroom that will feature the premium automaker’s line of electric and hybrid vehicles, including the BMW i3 and the i8 sedan.
The event also showcased the debut of the BMW iPedelec, an electric bicycle concept. Constructed in aluminium and carbon fiber, the iPedelec can reach speeds of 25 km/h (15 mph), will have a 40 km (25 miles) range and a battery that can be totally charged in four hours.
The BMW i3 is the first totally electric car conceived by the German firm. Designed to be used in an urban environment, the model is also unique in its use of interior space, which provides an impression of openness and is based around sustainable materials. The airiness of the car design is enhanced by the fact that much of the electric technology is largely out of sight in the lower portion of the vehicle.
