BMW has revealed the i3 Urban Suite ahead of its debut at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

Although it shares its exterior and powertrain with the mould-breaking i3 electric vehicle, the Urban Suite subs its four-seat interior for a two-seat setup designed to evoke "the relaxed feel of a boutique hotel".

The rear passenger sits in a large, business class seat with a footrest, a screen that flips down from the roof lining, and a 'personal sound zone'.

As with the standard i3, the interior is trimmed in fabrics with recycled materials, combined with responsibly-sourced wood and olive-tanned leather seats.

Only the driver's seat and dashboard have carried over unchanged.

BMW will have the Urban Suite doing laps of Las Vegas during CES. Anyone who wants a one-person chauffeur ride to the show can order a car through an app, and it will come to collect them.
