When the BMW i3 electric vehicle arrives this fall, it is expected to be priced around the same price range as the BMW 3 Series, which means that buyers can expect a price tag around $40,000. Ludwig Willisch, CEO of BMW of North America revealed the details to Automotive News.

The BMW i3 will also be offered with an optional two-cylinder, 0.65-liter gasoline engine and an auxiliary generator that will charge the battery, but Willisch did not provide any details on how much that version will cost.

It's expected that the fully electric version of the BMW i3 will qualify for a $7,500 federal tax credit and BMW is still waiting to find out if the range-extender version will also qualify for the same credit.

The five-door BMW i3 will arrive this fall and will be followed by the i8 sports car next spring.
