New hints that all-electric BMW iSetta is on the way


From user omolody on Flickr.

We’ve seen the renderings – some fanciful, like the ones above, some unsurprising – and heard the rumors about the new all-electric BMW/iSetta vehicle. If we trust the phrasing in a short story in Global Insight (no direct link, sorry; found the story in Lexis Nexis thanks to the EDTA), then we can celebrate a new development at BMW. The story, written by Tim Urquhart, starts, “BMW will give the green light to an all-new zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) city car that will see the premium carmaker enter an all-new segment.” This fits with the news that came out about a month ago that said that a decision would be made sometime this year. The new EV – which might be called the iSetta or potentially co-branded (?) with Smart – will likely have li-ion batteries. We’re ready for some official confirmation on this one, don’t you think?
