It’s only a matter of time before BMW fills in gap between its i3 and i8 green cars, and according to Autocar the next i car will be the i5.
The i5 will essentially be a stretched version
of the i3, making it a more practical family car with more legroom and
cargo space. With the added dimensions, the i5 could gain full-sized
rear doors giving rear passengers easier access to the back seats. The
i3 has an overall length of 157 inches, and Autocar suggests that the i5
will provide an additional 4 inches of legroom and a larger cargo area
than the i3 city car, which currently provides 11.8 cubic feet of space
in the rear and 2.8 cubic feet up front.
