BMW Megacity To Cost A Fortune Due To Advanced Technology

A report from Britain's Autocar magazine is claiming that BMWs Megacity electric car will exceed the Nissan Leaf's sticker price of 23,350 (or about $37,000 USD) due to both the advanced technology used on the Megacity and BMWs premium positioning.

The Megacity will have a number of groundbreaking features; an aluminum chassis that will resist corrosion, a passenger compartment made of carbon fiber and an electric motor with a 1-speed gearbox. One benefit of the Megacity is that the significantly smaller number of parts will make production more efficient, but the savings will not be passed onto consumers. "BMW is a premium product and electric mobility will not be cheap," said Autocar's source.
