Electric and hybrid cars continue making their way across every manufacturer’s lineup as restrictions on emissions become stricter each and every year. BMW has already jumped on this bandwagon with the introduction of the 2015 i8 and 2015 i3. According to a new report from CAR Magazine, however, the Bavarian automaker is set to unveil a more traditional, three-box i model that it will call the i5 or the i7.

Rumored to arrive in 2018 and rival the immensely successful Model S, the i5/i7 will roll in boasting a gasoline powerplant and a pair of electric motors. Though it seems like a valiant effort, can a range-extended EV like the i5/i7 really challenge the Tesla Model S for alternative-fuel supremacy?
