The BMW i3 is set to be unleashed upon a highly expectant audience – mostly on YouTube that is – on the 29th July 2013.
BMW are hotting up the much anticipated car by releasing information regarding their coveted smart-phone app which can, “With ConnectedDrive on your smartphone you control your BMW i3 from wherever you want, to start whenever you want.”
The app only has screenshots working on an Apple device, no surprise there then, but we imagine BMW will follow with an Android version at the very least before too long, and providing demand is strong enough, a Windows Phone 8 version too.
A couple of neat little extras feature on the app, such as the ability for those who have obsessive compusive disorder to make sure the boot is shut and the lights are off. Of course, the app will prove itself in the real world whereby the small snag of having to recharge your electric car becomes a reality and something which keeping a helpful eye on is most welcome, and this app should make that task simplicity itself.
We at AutoVolt are very much looking forward to the unveiling of the BMW i3 on 29th July 2013 so watch this space!
