A few days ago, an electric version of the BMW 3 Series was spotted in China. It is quite a surprise. However, it fits BMW’s strategy of having 25 electric cars by 2023 and converting old ICE cars into EVs. According to BMW’s naming conventions, it should be called i3, but BMW’s 2013 first EV has this badge. So Chinese media speculate the new car’s name will be BMW i3L. Let’s use it as a code name for now.
