Those do have a similar look, and depending the trim options we see with the Mini EV, we could see more sporty variants similar to the JCW. Though I think it will be important for the first generation to try and keep costs as low as possible.

They should probably take a similar approach to Tesla, and offer both short range and long range models. It looks like BMW is already working on a more powerful powertrain for the i3, and I'm assuming that's the powerplant they'll be using for the Mini EV.

Launching and keeping allocations strong at high volume dealers close to a lot of charging stations is also a good strategy.
It means they can launch ASAP and adjust as they go rather than getting it right and waiting longer to launch.

I'm surprised to hear that BMW is continuing with the i3 considering they plan on electrifying the 3 series. Thanks to depreciation they are an excellent model to pickup second hand, but imo BMW is going to have to radically reduce its price in the next gen.

The i3 just needs a modern interpretation, the idea of an i3 can work very well but it can't continue the way it is. If the next i3 is no more than a facelift and some refinements, i'll be disappointed.
