More than a month ago we reported on BMW’s green, electric concept car, the i3.
Now, finally, the day has arrived that we get to show you real life photographs of the car, as it was shown off at the Frankfurt Auto Show.
The i3 marks a break through for the German car manufacturer, as it is their first electric car. It is estimated that the i3 will be able to travel approximately 80 – 100 miles, or 130 – 160km on electric power, before it would need a recharge.

These include reinforced carbon fiber plastic, while the i3′s chassis is composed of aluminum and magnesium. It is the first mass-produced car with such attributes.
