There have been rumors BMW was developing a fully electrified version of its popular 3 Series sedan. Yes, this already exists here in the US and it’s called the BMW i4. Both vehicles ride on the CLAR platform. BMW, however, felt it necessary to launch yet another CLAR-derived EV.
Meet the China-only BMW i3 sedan, leaked here for the first time via CocheSpias on Instagram. It looks a lot like, well, the standard 3 Series only with blue accents surrounding the signature kidney grilles, new aero wheels, and a rear end missing the tailpipes. There’s also some additional blue trim surrounding the rear bottom lights.
