This particular BMW i3 is an Electronaut Edition, meaning its reserved for a BMW ActiveE Electronaut.

According to BMW Blog:

"The Limited Edition “Electronaut Edition” i3 was announced back in December, 2013."

"BMW i3 Electronaut Edition (ZEE) equipped vehicles adds options worth $1,750 and is free of charge to the Electronaut."

This particular i3 is Ionic Silver and optioned with 20-inch wheels.

Here's a look at the price on this i3:

The base price of the 2014 BMW i3 starts at $41,350, but as you can see this example tops $50,000.

Here are some additional pictures of this Electronaut Edition BMW i3 that we believe will be delivered to the actual buyers this weekend after the vehicle has completed prep.

Dealers throughout the US are now in the process of prepping BMW i3s and delivering those vehicles to customers.  The BMW i3 REx is, for the time being, held up at port, so those vehicles won't be delivered until cleared for release.
