The long-awaited arrival of the production version of the BMW i3 electric vehicle is now nearly upon.

On July 29, BMW will unveil the i3 to the world.

Though we've seen prototypes stripped of nearly all of the camo, the world has yet to see the real deal.

That'll all change later this month when BMW reveals the i3.

Vorfreude = Joyful anticipation.

The i3 will go on sale in Europe first (launch date tentatively set for November 16) before heading to the US.

As for pricing, expect a base MSRP of approximately $45,000, with the range-extender option adding $4,000 to that price tag.
