BMW i3 Electric Car Coming With 160 Mile Range And $35,000 Sticker: Report

I know this was reported by Car & Driver yesterday, but as someone close to the program I have to say I think the 160 miles range has been incorrectly reported. I believe the i3's target range is 100 miles which happens to be 160 kilometers. I think the person who reported this for C&D confused miles for km and the car will indeed have a targeted 100 mile range. The $35,000 base price is good news though, as I was expecting something a bit higher. Here is some more info on the i3 powertrain: http://bmwi3.blogspot.com/2011/03/bmw-i3-light-weight-means-less-energy.html
