Re: BMW i talks about larger EV, increased i3 range in 2016

I was not talking about a replacement battery pack, but an interim upgrade to production vehicles to take advantage of the new higher density Samsung packs as has been announced by Harald Krueger.

The next model of the i3 will have an even bigger capacity pack giving the hopeful 200 miles, but a way off yet.

ANything's possible, but I doubt they will make that sort of running change except at MY changeover. Almost all manufacturers have a statement on their spec sheets saying 'subject to change'. I doubt you'll get much, if any, advance notice other than the MY change.

Yes, that will be the new model 2017MY....the 200 mile range (if we are lucky, although I'll wager on more like 150).
