    Artist Rendering of the i1

    “As its name suggests, this concept has three wheels and is expected to be included within the range “i” introduced by BMW in 2011,” says Ndiaye.

    “It is of course an electric vehicle that is supposed to put together the experience of driving a motorbike with the safety of a car. That’s the main reason the two front wheels lean when taking corners thanks to a hydraulic system combined with the onboard computer which adjusts the tilt of the wheels depending on the vehicle speed."

    This one seat vehicle has a carbon chassis and is powered by 3 motors located at each wheel. This concept provides a link between the experience gained by BMW in the world of automobile and motorcycles; in addition it also shows that electric vehicles can also be linked to the philosophy of (expensive) driving pleasure of the German brand.”
