Range Extender

I just realized that there is two version of BMW i3, the one with Range Extender and without. As I understood, Range Extender adds a 2-cylinder gas engine to your BMW i3. My question is, how it works? When your battery is down, that gas engine turns on or what? Maybe they work at the same time? Also, does that mean that there are two fuel fillers on the body of i3? Can you guys explain a concept of having Range Extender?

I read that owners in the UK have been able to turn it on at will, just a matter of selecting a menu option. If there's anything BMW can do to improve our experience it will be including a feature like that. On the bright side its not just the i3 with the menu option but also the i8
