Unveiled - BMW i3 Coupe Concept

BMW has unveiled the i3 Coupe Concept before its LA Auto Show debut. Similar to the Bavarian's other i' range of cars, the i3 Coupe Concept has a carbon fiber body with Li-ion batteries under the floor. The chassis made up of CFRP is said to give the car a high level of rigidity. The electric motor has a maximum power output of 170PS and torque of 250Nm. It channels all the power to the rear wheels through a single-speed transmission. Though the wheelbase is identical to the i3, the Coupe has more width to it.

Inside the cabin, the i3 Coupe Concept boasts of wool, leather and wood upholstery. Due to the absence of a transmission tunnel, the cabin looks spacious as well.
