I love the body styling and interior...especially the center console. The side mirrors look over-wrought and contrived...no thanks.

She's got a gorgeous face, but her side profile is questionable; depending on the angle with the proper lighting, and her butt is average.

No way the side mirrors will make it, they are to small for production.

the side mirrors "reflect" the e-lineage.... they kind of look like a lowercase e to me as the car represents

I must be alone judging by previous posts, but I think this looks like a, well... washing machine? LG with a Roundel maybe??? I'd rather walk. This is about as far away from what a manual shifting M dreamer as myself could ever imagine.

Not a BMW I'd look at twice.

Sorry, one more

If you walk around the streets of your average European town, certainly in the UK, the streets are predominantly this type of vehicle. In my town, I'd guess that 60% of all vehicles are small to medium family hatchbacks. Hell, I think I see more F20 1-ers than I do F30 3-ers these days!

At the moment the families with a few extra to spend on a car like this don't have that many choices. The A3 and CT are more akin to the 1-er, the closest thing to this is the A/B from Mercedes, which are quite ugly and FWD.... don't hate the player, hate the game!

looks like a futurist mini-van, until they take off the concept styling in which it will look like a mini-van

WOW some of those design elements are bad. The mirror and the chrome pieces on the front and side in particular. I realize it's a concept, but this thing looks low class.

The styling is very good, but I don't think battery technology is here yet for plug in cars. Just looking at it with a 2 inch (5 cm) boost in ground clearance they could sell it in the US as an SUV.

I seriously think this car has the best front end of any BMW out right now. And yes I know this car is not out right now.

Reminds me a bit of this but all in all, I like it, very sleek car for city driving and if it's got a good range in electric mode - all the better.

God help me, but that may be my next commuter-mobile when the current one crumps. Nice lines, and the promise of MPG just a tad (cough, cough) better than my Jeep. If the interior and roof make it through to production as well .

Nicely executed for such a small space and a new mission.
