Apart from revolutionary vehicle architecture, traditional BMW driving pleasure, innovative connectivity and visionary design, this model possesses unmatchable product substance and an amazing character which is sustainable and future-focused.

Economy

The BMW group and ‘project i’ have worked extremely hard on the development of this revolutionary emission-free electric-vehicle, which is likely to gain a lot of appreciation in different parts of the world due to the ever-increasing oil prices. The BMW i3 will consume just 12.9 kilowatt in 100 kilometers (62 miles), which is better than any competitor in the market. On top of that, it offers two-cylinder range, which boosts energy range to around 300 kilometers.

Driving Pleasure

Customers can experience the most outstanding driving pleasure due to the especially developed LifeDrive architecture, customary BMW rear-wheel drive, amazing lightweight design and BMW eDrive technology.

Speed

The car has all the necessary sporting characteristics, with brilliant acceleration and agility. The BMW i3 can easily notch up 63 MPH from zero in merely 7.2 seconds, which is excellent.

Handling

A great combination of extreme comfort and agile handling is achieved through sophisticated chassis technology. Apart from strut front suspension and MacPherson single-joint spring, the vehicle has an Electric Power Steering, which offers very good handling.

Battery Charging

Convenient battery charging at home is provided through BMW i Wallbox. On top of that, customers can also use public charging stations without the need of cash by using ChargeNow cards.
