BMW has announced new details and pricing for the all-new i3, that will make its global debut on 29 July at parallel events in London, New York and Beijing.
The all-new BMW i3 all electric version will reach first customers in November, with a leasing price starting from £369 a month. Certain terms apply like contract mileage of 24,000miles.
Customers can also buy the BMW i3 outright from £25,680 OTR (including the government grant).
