Last week, BMW CEO Norbert Reithofer , confirmed one more time that Project i received a green light. By 2015, BMW will build an all electric city car with two engines available, one will be a very efficient internal combustion engine and the other will be a purely electric model.

The two-powertrain vehicle will be electric powered and it will represent the ideal solution for congested city motoring.

The felows at Autocar UK are following the steps of other publications that hurried to come up with computer generated images of the BMW’s electric car. The first ones to adventure into this CGI game, were the folks at Autobild, who came up with this interesting concept.

Not a bad rendering, but now let’s see what the UK felows came up with:

Quite different, isn’t it? While the second rendering seems to be closer to reality than the first one, mostly due to its size, I can’t help not to favor the first concept. Of course, these are just speculations and it will take at least another 4 years until the final design will be approved.

So, which one do you like most?
