New Details Emerge About the 2013 Megacity

BMW Chief Designer Adrian Van Hooydonk talked to Wallpaper about the upcoming Megacity Vehicle (MCV) and the future green BMW sub-brand. Here is a link to BMWBLOG about the discussion. The 2013 BMW Megacity car is the first all electric BMW that will be offered for sale. The ActiveE that I am writing about here is basically a test vehicle that will have all the Megacity components in it and people like me will be driving the car for about a year to give BWM real world feedback and endurance-test the components so when they do sell the car, buyers will have an awesome, finished product! The ActiveE program will start spring/summer of 2011 when the MINI-E electric car program that I am currently in ends.


  1. When can we expect to really see what the car will look like?

  2. BMW hasn't commented on when exactly we can expect to see what the car will look like. However it's looking like we may have to wait until the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. They have said they will have the Megacity there, but I do not know if that will be the official unveiling.

    I'll have all the most up to date info here.
