Everything about the BMW i3 with eDrive, every detail and every feature, is designed for life in the city. Driven by a locally emission-free electric motor, the BMW i3 guarantees mobility wherever you need it. It’s at home anywhere, from the edge of town to the city centre. Not surprisingly, the BMW i3 also qualifies for a full 100% discount in the London Congestion Zone. Aside from the ecological considerations, the BMW i3 makes a strong impression with its breathtaking acceleration at low speeds or from a standstill, going from 0-60 mph in 7.2 seconds.
BMW i is systematically promoting the development of sustainable electric mobility for everyday use. The BMW i3 allows you to reach destinations up to 125 miles away, making the BMW i3 perfect for the city, but also the ideal solution for the daily commute between home and office – including the occasional detour. If energy reserves are running low, use the time the vehicle is parked to charge it up, either with the standard charging cable from a regular power socket or via the BMW i Wallbox or the BMW i Wallbox Pro.
Most people drive less than they think: on average between 20 and 30 miles per day by car. But the BMW i3 leaves nothing to chance. Software analyses all factors that are crucial for precise range calculation: driving style, topography, temperature, driving mode, route planning, plus the energy requirements of any anciliary systems.
BMW i3’s dynamic and compact proportions hint strongly at its excellent manoeuvrability. The flowing silhouette and long wheelbase give an impression of the spacious passenger compartment, while the short overhangs on the front and rear of the vehicle make parking simple even in tight spaces. The window design and door sills combine to create a dynamic form and the coach doors offer convenient access.
The ‘Black Band’ that runs from the bonnet over the roof to the rear of the vehicle gives the whole car a very light appearance. Typical BMW i streamflow design features are apparent in the way the window surfaces in the tailgate merge to offer an excellent all-around view. Large 19 inch alloy wheels reduce rolling resistance, which, combined with numerous aerodynamic details, create the most efficient drive.
BMW i3’s unique LifeDrive architecture opens up a whole new world of design possibilities for vehicle interiors. The battery is stored in the floor of the Drive Module, so there’s no transmission tunnel to divide the space, leaving more space for you and your passengers. Inside, the carbon fibre Life Module feels innovative and futuristic.
Its unique design means you and your passengers sit higher, giving you a clear view in busy traffic or on the open road. It also makes getting in and out of the BMW i3 simpler - with no central transmission tunnel, you can easily switch sides to exit the vehicle.
