The upcoming i5 is likely to be the first option for single-car garages. BMW announced they are thinking of a new i model it to attract families. The new model must be capable of being the first car in the household.

BMW is still working very hard on the usage concept which will be defined by the market. The i5 will most probably have a carbon-fiber structure as it seems the most obvious choice. 

Wenders also stated the i-line also has a role to help industrialize new materials and processes. BMW opened the door to innovation with the i3 and now they will take it forward from there. The i5 is expected to arrive by 2020.
