WOODCLIFF LAKE, New Jersey — The 2014 BMW i3 electric vehicle starts at $42,275, including a $925 destination charge and before any federal or state tax credits, BMW North America said on Monday.

"With this leading-edge vehicle and attractive price, we will provide customers with a compelling offer for electromobility," said Ian Robertson, member of the BMW board of management, sales and marketing, in a statement.

When the $7,500 federal tax credit is factored in, the BMW i3 starts at $34,775.

The BMW i3 is priced above the 2013 Nissan Leaf and 2014 Fiat 500e. The 2013 Nissan Leaf starts at $29,650, including an $850 destination charge and before any federal or state tax credits. The 2013 Fiat 500e starts at $32,600, including an $800 destination charge and before any federal or state tax credits. The Fiat 500e is available only in California.

BMW did not release a price on the optional range-extender engine on the i3, which is expected to start around $2,000.

It also did not provide pricing on home charging stations for the i3, but they are expected to start around $2,000-$3,000 for basic installation.

The BMW i3 is equipped with a 170-horsepower electric motor and lithium-ion battery. The German EV has a range of 80-100 miles, according to the automaker. The EPA has not released official fuel economy numbers on the i3.

The BMW i3 will make its world debut on July 29 and arrive in U.S. showrooms in the second quarter of 2014. The unveiling will take place at three simultaneous events in New York, London and Beijing.

Edmunds says: The BMW i3 gets a relatively affordable price tag for a luxury electric vehicle.
