Chase Car Tracks Speed Of BMW i3 On German Autobahn

 

The title pretty much says it all.

BMW's i3, which is scheduled to be released in Europe on November 16th, and in the United States by the end of the year, hit the open road (specifically the Autobahn) this week and gave us our first look at the vehicle at high speed.

How fast was it going? At least 153 km/hr at one point (95 mph).

The BMW i3 has an all electric range of a little more than 90 miles and has an extended range option that adds a small 2 cylinder engine, bringing the total range up to about 200 miles.

What one?  Order books on the i3 are set to open sometime in July.
