Yesterday, the BMW i3 made a surprise appearance in Chicago, and AutoblogGreen reader Jim P. happened to be nearby in a really good position with a high-quality camera. We assume that this is a commercial in progress, but it could be some sort of other promotional video. We haven't heard that this car will appear in a movie, so in-house PR seems most likely. We've asked BMW for more information, but we won't be surprised if this one remains secret for now.
Jim writes, "Saw this being filmed today on Wacker Drive in Chicago. Car looks sharp in person, and of course is totally silent." You can judge for yourself in the video after the jump and read all about the i3 here.
