Rumour has it that Munich automaker, BMW will introduce their Vision Concept in late 2013 or early 2014. The name that will be given to the vehicle will be i8. This does not come as a surprise to all of us who were aware that BMW had recently registered trademarks on a series of i”number” brands (i2,i3,i4,i5,i6,i7,i8). This was leaked by BMW insiders about a week ago.
Although these rumors are being widely spread throughout the internet….The BMW i8 is simply a rumor that no official sources have been able or been willing to confirm.
Will come back to this when I get more info….
On today’s edition of The Giblog’s “Tuesday Motor Review” I will introduce to you one more alternate energy fueled vehicle for you to consider in 2011.

Designed and engineered in California, the four-door, four-passenger Karma is a series plug-in hybrid that combines the zero-emission benefits of an all-electric car with the full driving range of a conventional car.
