BMW To Preview i3, i8 On Friday

This Friday, July 29, during a press conference; BMW plans to reveal two cars which will form part of its i lineup of 'green' vehicles.

Although some have criticized the Bavarian automaker for being later to the party when it comes to electric cars, the company is apparently looking to make up for lost time, with a 'dazzling' entrance planned for this year's Frankfurt Motor Show.

The two 'i' models it plans to unveil (shown here in rendered form); are the i3, a plug-in electric city car, first seen around a year ago in the form of the 'Megacity' concept design sketch and the i8, a larger, sporty, plug-in gas/electric hybrid, which will make an appearance in the upcoming film, Mission Impossible 4.

Both cars will utilize aluminum chassis construction, as well as a carbon reinforced passenger cell and will use common propulsion parts including electric motors and lithium-ion batteries. Both cars will be built BMW's Leipzig plant with production likely to begin sometime in 2013.
