The BMW i3 soldiers on into its second year of availability in the U.S. with only two notable changes: CCS fast charge is now standard and base MSRP is up by ~$1,000.

The Model Year 2014 BMW i3 BEV had a base MSRP of $41,350.  For 2015, with the addition of standard CCS fast charge ($700 option in 2014), the base MSRP for the i3 BEV jumps to $42,400.

Similarly, the price of the BMW i3 REX jumps up by more than $1,000 too.  For 2015, the base MSRP for the i3 REx increases from $45,200 to $46,250.

The "World" prices have decreased.  Tera World (top trim) is now a $2,500 option, compared to $2,700 for 2014.

BMW has wisely made heated seats standard for 2015 too.

So, minor changes for 2015 bring price increases to the i3, but useful features have been added.  Basically a wash, but no price drop as we've seen with most other plug-in vehicles in their second year on the market.
