Due to its unusual shape and distinctive interior, the BMW i3 was either a car you liked or you didn’t.
There was no in between.

The 4-door hatchback offered seating for four and was one of the most practical, yet premium EV.

The potential of the i3 was greatly maximised with its made shell made entirely of carbon fiber, a material that was stronger than steel and lighter than aluminum.

For 2017, BMW introduced a larger battery to improve the driving range. It was available for 2 out of the 3 trim levels available, namely the base and the Range Extender version.

Inside the i3 was a roomy interior, with a comfortable seating position. Quietness defined the i3’s cabin in the all-electric mode, with the only exception being the gas generator running when the battery was discharged.

While lots of storage spaces were available in the cabin, the i3’s cargo area was a small size and loading heavier items was made uneasy with the high position of the trunk.

The i3 was equipped with a standard business navigation. Optionally, a professional navigation was available, with a bigger screen and a hard-drive map data.

An available packaged named Technology + Driving Assistant included adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with collision mitigation. A parallel parking system was available as a stand-alone feature.

After its launch, the BMW i3 evolved and topped the charts among the electric car sales around the world.
It was the most sold premium electric vehicle in the world. In 2017, a new version was launched: the i3s.

BMW sporting heritage is known. The introduction of an electric vehicle in its range was surprising, but when the little i3 was compared from the performance-wise to other electric compact vehicles, it proved to be sportier. The i3s came to add more to the already nimble i3.

The i3s came along with new color options, including a red and black theme. It also featured a new, exclusive, 20” wheel design. There were few other small details such as reshaped bumpers and a sport suspension that lowered the ground clearance by 10 mm (0.4”) and wider track by 40 mm (1.6”). For the headlights, new full-LED units were installed for both low- and high-beams.

Inside the i3s the design and the materials used were premium, eucalyptus unpainted wood. The natural fiber used for the upholstery also were wood-based. The instrument cluster was a full TFT display. The i3s was roomy and provided easy access due to the four doors and the rear doors were read-hinged.

With a bigger power and an adjusted DTC (Dynamic Traction Control) mode that boosted agility at higher speeds and during sporty cornering. And, according to the official press release, it even allowed “mild and safely controllable drifts when grip levels are reduced”.

The i3 is BMW’s first ever mass production electric vehicle, built using data collected during previous EV trials.
It is built around a very light chassis made largely from aluminum and protects its passengers inside a CFRP cell. Power is delivered by an electric motor mounted at the back which has a maximum output of 170 PS sent to the rear wheels. The rear world range is expected to be somewhere between 130 to 160 km, but additional driving range can be added by ordering the i3 with a two-cylinder engine mounted at the back. BMW says this will add another 250 to 300 km.
