BMW Megacity car teaser

BMW has shown a teaser image of the Megacity vehicle, which makes BMW venture into the emissions-free world of electric mobility.

BMW’s Megacity vehicle will be a 4 seater and will be presented in 2013. The Megacity will use a rear-mounted electric motor paired with a battery pack. BMW will make extensive use of carbon fiber reinforced plastics or CFRP in an effort to help reduce weight.

The Megacity will be powered by a motor with over 100 kilowatts, but its top speed will be limited to 93 miles-per-hour since the vehicle is designed mainly for urban use.
