Those headlights are much more clear now! We can easily see the 3 LCI in action as well as the i3!

How much clarity is necessary?

Definitely not the first time the China market only i3L has been seen.

This was already shown without the camo as the electric 3er/i3 for China. You can see the Chinese characters on the side of the vehicle.

I still don't like how all the EVs sit up higher to fit the battery underneath.

What's the purpose of having an i3 when the i4 is already a 3 series or 4 series Gran Coupe? They are just adding more and more confusing models to the extensive model lineup! I remember when there was only 3 series, 5 series and 7 series

i3 is a China only Long-Wheelbase model. The Chinese market favor sedans with large backseats and there is no LWB variant of the 4-Series.

That's correct. This i3 is for China only. "Our" and "Your" Electric 3er will begin with the Neue Klasse 3er in 2025.
Our Electric D segment model is the i4.

Will the new i3/Electric 3'er have the same transmission tunnel and massive in-usable hood as the i4?

Never understood why electric or electrified cars were given "i" designation.

Did you forget about the 6-series which actually came before the 7-series?
