Of all of BMW's recent concepts, none are as daring as their pair of low emission "i" vehicles, the i8 and i3. Both those cars remain in the prototype stages, but Britain's Evo Magazine recently got to take a trip in the i8 on frozen lake in Sweden.
BMW's new sustainable sub-brand will be called "BMW i" and launch with the BMW i8/Vision EfficientDynamics, the smaller Megacity-based i3, and $100 million in venture capital for sustainable mobility projects. What, no iSetta?
BMW will announce the official new sub-brand name on Monday. The project, dubbed "i" since its inception, will focus on electric and small vehicles. The first car will be the Mega City Vehicle, going on sale in 2013.
