From BMWBlog .com - To find out more interesting BMW news and stories, visit their site here.
Automobile Magazine and Autobild both report that BMW is preparing two additional models for the i sub-brand and they will be out by 2016. Rumor has it that these models will be named BMW i1 and BMW i5.
The i5 is said to be a high-roof, long-wheelbase five-seater wagon/MPV hybrid. In 2011, a prototype was spotted equipped with electric wheel-hub motors at the front, and running on very narrow tires without electric motors at the rear. This might be the BMW i5 model, but it can also be a test for range-extended electric drivetrain.
Rumor also has it that the BMW i1 will be a two-plus-two-seat city car and will have a very short-wheelbase. city car coming in 2016.Cheers,
