BMW to Make i5 People Carrier


BMW People Carrier

Purists are going to scoff at BMW making a MPV. A report in Germany’s Autobild magazine states that, a new i5 MPV will complete the i3 and i8 range of electric cars. Slated for launch in 2015, the i5 uses the same lightweight construction material as the other i siblings. Power comes from 125 kW electric motor at the rear, while the 65 kW 3 cylinder petrol motor at the front acts as the range extender. Fuel consumption is rated to be at 3 litres per 100 km.

About Jack Lee

Jack Lee is an unqualified petrol head (some say, to be one, you have to own an Alfa Romeo) who is disappointed with cars which are getting more and more electronics and the lack of interest in cars shown by today's youths in general. He owns an almost 20 year car from Germany, which has almost 50:50 weight distribution, 3 pedals (manual, FTW!) and believes that everyone should spin at the last corner of Sepang circuit at least once in their life. He also holds the distinction in TCG as the person with the lightest right foot, of course, when compared with his colleagues' mutated cast iron right foot.
