BMW Group Ireland has announced the pricing of one of the most anticipated cars in its history.

The new BMW i3 will be delivered to customers in Ireland in November, 2013.

The net price in Ireland will be €33,160 after Government grants (€5,000 SEAI Electric Vehicle Grant Scheme and €5,000 VRT relief) for the BMW i3, the company's first all-electric series production vehicle.

Ian Robertson, Member of the Board of Management, Sales and Marketing BMW, said in Munich: "The BMW i3 heralds the dawn of a new era for individual mobility and for the BMW Group.

"True to a genuine BMW, the BMW i3 has strong emotional appeal, outstanding product substance and a guarantee of sheer driving pleasure. With this leading-edge vehicle and attractive price, we will provide customers with an attractive offer for electromobility."

The BMW i3 made its international premiere on July 29 at parallel events on three continents in the megacities of London, New York and Beijing.
