BMW to create an all electric city car?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

A few bits of information have been leaking out here and there about BMW's plans to create an all-electric, lithium-ion two-seater for the European and American market. It seems to be possible that it will be a re-incarnation of BMW's tiny Isetta...but there are also indications that it will be co-branded with Smart.


BMW has made it clear that they'll be deciding whether the U.S. will be getting a zero-emissions vehicle sometime this year. But BMW has yet to confirm any rumors concerning the Smart branding, or the Isetta platform. Of course, that hasn't stopped people like Omolody on Flickr from creating some renders of what an updated Isetta might look like (pictured.)

Do it, BMW.  Do it!

I'm all about a BMW EV, but I think I'd prefer something that didn't look like a miniaturized VW Bus from the front and a Micromachine from the side, ha.

Haha...yeah.  That mock-up doesn't really follow the sleek lines of their other series vehicles.  But if they're co-branding with Smart...who could say what the look will be.
