The BMW i Vision Dynamics is an all-electric, emission-free four-door Gran Coupe that accelerates from 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds, has a top speed of 120 mph with a range of 373 miles. The BMW i Vision Dynamics combines electric mobility with the core values of BMW – dynamism and elegance – and demonstrates how the product range and design language of BMW i can be further incorporated into other models. The new characterization of BMW i’s iconic window profile is a standout feature of the BMW i Vision Dynamics, offering all passengers equally striking views out of the vehicle to lend a shared driving experience – a factor that will become increasingly relevant as semi- and autonomous driving become closer to commonplace.

The new BMW i3s is a sportier and more powerful variant of the BMW i3, the best-selling compact battery-electric vehicle in the premium compact segment worldwide since it launched in 2014. The first ever BMW i3s provides an even sportier interpretation of silent mobility with zero emissions and features a high output 184 hp electric motor that generates peak torque of 199 lb-ft. The BMW i3s accelerates from 0-60 mph in 6.8 seconds and has a top speed of 100 mph. The BMW i3s uses a lithium-ion high-voltage battery developed by the BMW Group with a cell capacity of 94-ampere hours (Ah). Like the BMW i3, the BMW i3s applies the concept of sustainability throughout the interior and exterior of the vehicle, incorporating recycled plastics, renewable raw materials, natural fibers, and open-pored, unbleached eucalyptus wood in the design. The new BMW i3s will be available in U.S. showrooms in November, 2017. Pricing will be announced closer to market launch.

The BMW M3 CS accelerates from 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds and has a top speed of 174 mph. The BMW M3 CS is available to order in the U.S. starting in May 2018.

The BMW M5 has been regarded as the quintessential high performance sports sedan since its initial iteration launched in 1984. The 2018 BMW M5 marks the debut of the first ever M-specific all-wheel drive system, M xDrive, which allows the BMW M5 to reach new heights of dynamic performance and delivers poise in all driving situations. Thanks to a 4.4-liter V8 engine featuring M TwinPower Turbo technology, the BMW M5 produces 600 hp and 553 lb-ft of peak torque, skyrocketing from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds, making it the quickest and most agile to date.

I thought the i8 Roadster (Spyder) was also supposed to make its public appearance at the LA show?

Odd that the Z4 concept is not in the lineup - it is the CA after all - more vert folk per capita than most states other than perhaps Florida!

86380 pounds? That is $113,000! Does it include carbon brakes at that price?
Anything above $100,000 would be crazy with no OLED and no carbon brakes for an extra 10 hp and a few M performance parts.
Nice paint colors though!

Take off 20% VAT, but GBP to USD is never a straight shot. You could do base M3 GBP to USD as a percentage and then multiply that by the CS price in GBP to get within probably 5% of reality.

Do not forget to add taxes to US prices then. Up to 10% in some areas. Prices include taxes in Europe, not in the US.
Take the example of the M4 gts:
150,000 euros including VAT
$132,500 + taxes here.
Basically same exact price.
Problem is, when the gts was introduced, the euro was worth $1.04. It is now worth over $1.15. That does not help with US prices since those models are still made in Germany.

What about these claims regarding the world debut of a new electric car at the LA show? Or is it the hybrid i8?

https://www.greencarreports.com/news...akes-u-s-debut


- BMW will use media days at the Los Angeles auto show, which begin on November 29, to unveil a new electric car that's never before been seen.

The electric model that will debut in California wasn't otherwise specified in the German maker's announcement, which called it simply "a world premiere vehicle."

It's entirely possible, however, that it might be a concept version of the future BMW X3e, an all-electric version of its next-generation X3 compact crossover utility vehicle.

Wonder how comfortable drivers right arm will be in the CS without an armrest. Given it's a DCT u don't need the room to work the shift action like in a 6MT.

According to the press release (quote below), only three of the five electric vehicles BMW is bringing to LA are currently being named. One of the other two is specifically called a "World Premier vehicle". I suspect a concept version of the upcoming electric X3 (possibly called "iX3").

It's not clear what the further electric vehicle will be. It is highly unlikely it will be another world premier or even North American premier, else I'm sure they'd have said as much. Perhaps it will simply be the non-"s" i3 LCI. Yes, technically that vehicle would also be a North American premier, but the i3 already exists obviously, so perhaps they opted not to include the LCI of the base model in the list of premiers so as not to cheapen the impact of the others.
