BMW i3 Specifications

Exterior

Close X

The i3’s distinctive, smoothly moulded body (made from super-strong carbon fibre reinforced polymer) really helps it to stand out from the city car crowd. Even its iconic ‘kidney’ front fascia, without the conventional grille, differs from those that are found on the majority of BMW vehicles.

Futuristic style The car’s futuristic appearance extends to 19-inch ‘i’ alloys that feature an idiosyncratic turbine-style design. Naturally, these wheels are sufficiently lightweight that they’re able to contribute significantly to the i3’s super-efficiency.
LED lighting LED lights adorn the rear of the car, specifically dynamic brake lights that form a part of the i3’s rather nifty-looking rear spoiler.
Glossy touches The i3’s wing mirror shells sport a high-gloss-black finish, which, much like the aforementioned rear spoiler, provides a nice contrast to your paint finish of choice.

Interior

Despite the car’s relatively small dimensions, it’s surprisingly spacious inside – and while it might not be obvious at first glance, it features a four-door body, which ensures easy access. There’s plenty of room inside for four, although especially tall rear-seated travellers might find that headroom is a little compromised. The i3 possesses a 260-litre boot space which, with rear seats flipped, increases to a maximum 1,110-litre load capacity.

Versatility Extra versatility is provided by slide-through front seats, which help to make access to the rear compartment even easier. Simply push the seats forward to create a wider entrance/exit corridor.
Heated seating The car features heated front seats, and the driver has the additional comfort-making benefits that are provided by an adjustable position and a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel.
Heat protection The i3’s windows are fitted with green-tinted heat-protection glass, which significantly minimises the effects of bright sunshine by reducing dazzle and maintaining a comfortable cabin climate.

Performance

Close X

A standard-issue lithium-ion 38kWh battery delivers 168bhp, enabling the car to go from 0-60mph in a little more than seven seconds. Since no conventional engine is featured, this is a zero-emissions car – and as long as you drive it, you’ll never need to visit another petrol station. The battery is easily charged using a standard three-pin mains supply – or by taking advantage of rapid-charging facilities. The former option takes approximately 15 hours when using a standard charging cable, while the latter sees the task achieved in a little more than 40 minutes. Once charging is completed, the i3 offers an impressive 188-mile range.
