 BMW i3 to gain a fuel cell variant - report

2014 BMW i3 [10th Oct, 2013] [10th Oct, 2013]

Could use the same system as the 2015 Toyota FCV

When BMW and Toyota announced plans to jointly develop a new sports car, they also confirmed the development of a fuel cell system. The latter news was overshadowed by the Supra rumor mill but new details are starting to emerge about BMW’s fuel cell vehicle.

According to Motoring, BMW will use the hydrogen fuel cell system that recently debuted in the 2015 Toyota FCV. Nothing is official but the system will reportedly be offered in the i3 by 2016.

There’s no word on specifications but the Toyota FCV will accelerate from 0-100 km/h in approximately 10 seconds and have a range of roughly 300 miles (482 km).

Pricing also remains a mystery but it will likely be expensive as the FCV is slated to cost approximately seven million yen ($68,076 /€50,874) in Japan.
