A report by Carscoops claims the car has been revealed to Chinese authorities. The 2022 BMW i3 doesn't share anything with the electric hatchback that gets the same nomenclature. The new i3 comes bearing the same sharp LED headlamps as the standard BMW 3-Series. Also, the enclosed grille with blue accents indicates its zero-emission character.

The 2022 BMW i3 also gets aerodynamic wheels, modified front fenders, sleek side skirts. The rear bumper and diffuser also add more style to the stylish all-electric sedan.
