BMW E1, BMW's first electric car

Matteo the car designer was at the BMW museum today and this tweet caught my attention.

I learned that the E1:

  • debuted at the 1991 Frankfurt Motor Show
  • developed by BMW's Technik division
  • 93 mile range
  • 43 hp
  • aluminum chassis, plastic body panels
  • first prototype caught fire and burned to ground
