BMW has already released the basic images of the vehicle and its i8 cousin, but plans to fully reveal the cars in a few weeks at the Frankfurt Motor Show, so we were excited to see this real-life sneek peak. The i3 is constructed of a record-breaking amount of super-light carbon fiber and aluminum and is said to up the battery range of EVs to 80-100 miles, which is great news for people living just outside city centers.
