Reports earlier this month suggest BMW could unveil the rumoured i4, believed to be a coupe-like companion to the i3, utilising the same platform and electric drive system.
In concept form, the rear-wheel-drive i3's output is listed at 125kW and 250Nm of torque, with power transferred through a single-speed transmission.
BMW promises a 0-60km/h time of 3.9 seconds and a 0-100km/h run of 7.9 seconds - quite spritely for a city car.
The carmaker says i3 owners - likely to be primarily urban dwellers - can expect to get between 130 to 160km from one charge.
Reports in Germany have also pointed to a new 'i5' model, rumoured to be a range-extended people-mover.
It is reported that power for the i5 will come from a 125kW electric motor mounted at the rear axle, mated to a small 65kW three-cylinder petrol engine that would act as a range extender.
Whatever BMW is planning for LA, keep an eye on TMR next week for all the details.
