Rumor: BMW i3 to cost between $43,000 and $49,700

According to automobilwoche.de the i3, BMW’s first entry into the EV market will be priced similarly to the current entry level 5-Series, somewhere between €35,000 - €40,000 ($43,000 - $49,700US).

This isn't really a surprise since BMW CEO Norbert Reithofer previously said the i3 will be priced less than a five series. Given the current five series starts at about $48,000, this price range seems in line with those comments. If you look below at my previous post below, you'll see the poll I started that asks "What would you pay for an i3?" It seems the poll results are very close to what I expect the i3 pricing to start at, which is right around $45,000.
