Later this year, BMW’s i3 electric car will receive a technology facelift. But that’s not all BMW has in store for the i3. On the roadmap presented by BMW Chief Harald Krueger, we’ve noticed a potentially new color for the i3 – Protonic Blue. In addition, the small photo supports the information from our sources that the BMW i3 will be updated without an optical facelift.

By expanding the color palette of the i3, BMW is giving every year – essentially – a new update to their customers.

Just recently, the Bavarians also unveiled the BMW i8 Protonic Red that gives the hybrid sportscar a new identity clearly distinguishing it from all versions previously available.

Last September, BMW announced their first colors refresh for the i3. For Model Year 2016, BMW i3 received a new set of colors. When it launched in 2013, BMW’s first fully electric car was available with two non-metallic paints – Arravani Grey and Capparis White – and four metallic colors – Ionic Silver, Solar Orange, Laurel Grey and Andesite Silver.

This year, only three of the six colors have made the cut: Capparis White, Ionic Silver and Solar Orange. The new paint jobs offered are Fluid Black, Platinum Silver and Mineral Grey.
