BMW Megacity vehicle is less than three years away, but the rendering game has already begun. Courtesy of Autoexpress UK, we have the first rendering of what they label as BMW i10. Part of a new BMW sub-brand, the Megacity lineup will be focusing mostly on electric vehicles, including two and three-wheeler models.
The vehicle in the drawing gets its inspiration from the 1-Series, but it could be mistaken for a miniature X6. The i10 is expected to use a powertrain very similar to the ActiveE concept that was show at the Detroit Auto Show back in January. The five-seater will be similar in size to the VW Golf, but the rear-wheel-driven car will be fully electric.
A lot of development on the Megacity vehicles will take place at the recently announced BMW plant in Moses Lake, Washington.
As part of the marketing plan for the 2012 London Olympics where BMW is an official sponsor, the transportation provider is likely to be some prototype versions of the new i-range.Autoexpress ]
