BMW to showcase 5 EVs at LA show

The BMW Group will present 5 EVs at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, including one new production vehicle, the BMW i3s.

BMW recently reported that EVs and PHEVs now account for 5.5% of total sales in the US. By 2025, the company plans to offer 25 electrified models, 12 of them pure EVs.

The new BMW i3s is a sportier and more powerful variant of the i3. The first i3s features an electric motor with 184 hp of power and 199 lb-ft of peak torque, as well as a BMW-developed battery with a cell capacity of 94 amp hours. The new EV does 0-60 mph in 6.8 seconds and has a top speed of 100 mph.

The i3s will be available in US showrooms in November, 2017. Pricing will be announced closer to market launch.

The BMW i Vision Dynamics concept car is an electric four-door Gran Coupe that accelerates from 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds, has a top speed of 120 mph, and offers a range of 373 miles. A MINI electric concept will also be on display at the show.
