The eco-friendly Bavarian novelty, which is rumored to be positioned as a replacement for the 5-door i3 hatchback, will receive a starting price of less than $ 34,000. The official presentation is scheduled for 2024.

According to representatives of the German brand BMW, their new “green” i2 model will be completely different from the current electric hatchback i3. As part of his recent interview with foreign publications, Klaus Fröhlich, a member of the board of the BMW AG concern, hinted at the creation of a new model by the BMW i division, which is engaged in the development and subsequent production of all-electric or hybrid cars.

It is reported that the novelty will be called i2 and can be launched on the market in 2024 at a price of less than $ 34,000[IP]&ua=[UA]&domain=[DOMAIN]&page=[PAGE]&secure=[SECURE]&language=[BROWSER_LANGUAGE]&bidfloor=[BIDFLOOR]&gdpr_consent=[GDPR_CONSENT]

It is expected that the new car will look more familiar than the current BMW i3, with its futuristic exterior features. The model can get a body type sedan or 4-door coupe. At the moment there is no accurate data on whether the i2 model will become the successor to the i3 or they will be sold together.

BMW is officially working on several new electric models, such as the iX3, i4 and iNEXT. I2, in the long run, is unlikely to be a surprise, but we are not sure whether it would be a good idea to completely abandon i3, especially since the latter’s sales are increasing every year.

I also note that in earlier this month, official representatives of BMW AG announced a collaboration with the concern Daimler, whose goal will be the development of electrical power plants.
