BMW released a few more details about the MegaCity electric car. They are showing up in several on-line articles.

To go on sale in 2013
Rear-drive 50/50 weight balance.
About the size of a VW Golf.
It won't be cheap.
It won't be sold as a BMW.

Batteries and drive components are mounted on an aluminium subframe. Carbon fiber passenger cell mounts on top of this. Weight to be about the same as a conventional steel car.
