BMW I3 Concept

CAR/Car Design 2011. 8. 14. 00:34 |

First introduced as the “Megacity Vehicle”, the i3 will be BMW’s first series-produced all-electric car, and is expected to hit the market in 2014. 

The side view is characterized by a dynamic wedge shape, underlined by the large greenhouse that tapers towards the rear, the rearwards-rising door sills and the “stream flow” – a dynamic stroke descending from the roof into the C-pillar.

The flowing silhouette and the long wheelbase hint at the generous levels of interior space, while the “coach doors” with opposing construction and no B pillars makes it easier to access the cabin.

“The design reveals the driving pleasure on offer with electromobility. And you can add to that a large and practical interior.” says Benoit Jacob, Head of BMW i Design Team. 

Extensive glass surfaces and black elements like the window surrounds and door sills give the vehicle a feeling of lightness and, together with the exposed carbon structures, draw attention to its low weight.

At the same time, the lack of B-pillars ensures a seamless transition between the two doors.

The result is a large, homogeneous glass surface, which gives the car’s flanks a very transparent look.

Large, narrow 19-inch wheels add further impact to the dynamic side profile of the BMW i3 Concept.

Their slim construction allows them to reduce the car’s drag and rolling resistance, and to avoid encroaching into the interior. And that means more space for the passengers.
