Lease, own or sell back your BMW i3 with 'OwnersChoice with Flex' planby Tim Jones on February 25, 2014 at 04:45:00 PM
With the launch of the BMW i3, the brand’s first premium electric vehicle, BMW Group Financial Services becomes one of the first in the industry to create a financial solution to ownership that provides eligible customers with the options to lower their monthly payment and return the vehicle at the end of their contract term. The financing product called ‘OwnersChoice with Flex,’ provides eligible BMW i3 customers the option to increase their final OwnerChoice balloon payment due at the end of their contract term by up to $7,500. This increased final balloon payment reduces the amount of the customer’s required monthly payment. Eligible buyers of a new i3 may also be able to receive a Federal EV Income Tax Credit. Customers should consult with tax professionals to determine if they qualify for the tax credit as eligibility is complicated and subject to change.

BMW 3 Series eDrive - Plug-in hybrid in the worksby Tim Jones on February 11, 2014 at 06:47:00 PM
At last year's Frankfurt Motor show BMW displayed a plugin hybrid powered F15 X5. The X5 on display was powered by a 4 cylinder TWinPower Turbo engine coupled to a 95 hp electric motor. BMW didn't give a power output for the 4 cylinder engine but we're guessing it was a variant of the N20 found in the 3 series.
Recently BMW has been spied testing a 3 series with the same front fender access door we saw on the X5 eDrive. BMW said the X5 eDrive was a concept only, but we know they've been testing the drive train technology. Could a BMW 3 series with eDrive be in the works?
