A German auto mechanic in the town of Schkeuditzer, which is about 12 km north of Lepzig -  where the new BMW i3 is currently in pre-production, says he has seen his fair shake of i3 mules on the road.

Fortunately, he had a camera handy and caught some i3s testing with a lot less camouflage recently.

 "They come here often," says Thomas Vacek to DAZ Online.

The i3's official debut will come in September in Frankfurt, with first deliveries happening in Europe in mid-November and the US to follow shortly thereafter.

The i3 has an all electric range of about 90 miles, which can be extended to around 200 miles with a range-extender option.  Estimated starting price-tag for the i3 is in the mid-$40,000 dollar range.

These new pics do beg the question, "Are you happy with what you are seeing so far from BMW with the i3?"
