The opening of BMW’s first dedicated i Store in London was accompanied by the presentation of an updated version of the i3 Concept.
While some have been spreading the word that this particular i3 Concept features a newer interior that is closer to the production model, this is not true.
What BMW’s designers did is simply change the colors of the cabin and add different materials on the seating surfaces and eucalyptus wood trim on the dashboard, nothing more, nothing less.
The exterior of the car also remains the same with the i3 Concept displayed at last year’s Frankfurt Motor Show.
The new i3 will roll off the production line in late 2013 at the BMW plant in Leipzig.
In addition to the i3, the opening of the London store saw the BMW Group presenting for the first time in public the new “BMW i Wallbox” charger which has been specially created for the i models and will be offered via selected BMW i partners.
