Some times, a picture says it all.

In the above shot floating around the interwebs today, we get a good look at what appears to be the first production-ready spy shot of the front of the BMW i3.  We use the term "spy shot" loosely in this case, as there just happens to be a fellow blocking the field of view with a 4' x 8' piece  of panelling, and no other shots seem to be available.

Still, we will take what we can get.

The BMW i3 will be coming to market this fall, with the first delivery to take place November 16th, 2013.  The i3 has an all-electric range of about 150 km (93 miles) and will have an available extended range option that will had a small engine generator in the back, expanding the total range to 200 miles.

BMW says they already have several hundred advance-orders, and the car is expected to have a starting MSRP in the mid-40s.
