BMW sales and marketing boss Ian Robertson has confirmed the soon to arrive EV Sports car which is one of the many variants of BMW’s Megacity Electric four-seater cars. More of such variants is also expected from BMW in near future.
Different formats of the Megacity would be launched in 2013 as per Robertson. The completely different design that the sports car beholds with its Vision Efficient Dynamics would make this car a pure electric sports car, he has stated. It would he stated sport and be sold under the BMW badge. Name of the vehicle is yet under consideration but would be an aggressive one. The Megacity itself is made of carbon fiber and about 30% weight reduction has been achieved by this instead of using aluminum which once again is lighter by 30% when compared to steel body cars. Megacity has been set to achieve high targets but it would not be low priced given the high development costs that it has gone through in its making.
