Certainly sounds like a quiet way to electrify the whole range ... i.e., BMW focus groups say consumers are concerned about the e-tech being unproven or fringe so they're going to condition them that it's always been there.

Certainly seems like a prelude to fully electrifying the whole range, and not just an e-only line. The stealth 45e PHEV would also seem to be part of this ... not an i-line, not fully electric, but more than MHEV.
