The 2013 BMW i3 is nothing new to the mainstream automotive press. While BMW has yet to officially unveil the i3 at an international auto show, the company has leaked sketches, videos and photos of its new eco-friendly electric city vehicle. Now it seems like your local TV station will get in on the i3 action because an i3 Concept was recently spotted filming a commercial in Chicago.
This video gives us a very clear shot of what BMW’s i3 Concept looks like on the move. In this short 25-second clip, we see the i3 slowly rolling up a closed off Chicago street as a Ford F-350 camera rig follows and films BMW’s little electric car. The only thing really noticeable about the i3 is the noise – or lack thereof. While the i3 is electric and almost silent, the noisy diesel camera rig drowns out any hint of electric motor whine and road noise from the i3.
