BMW i3


The 2016 BMW i3 ushers in a new era of EV automobiles, offering up the previously unprecedented combination of superlative efficiency and desirable driving dynamics--it is a BMW, after all. Incredibly strong yet lightweight Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) is used in the construction, allowing not only for efficiency, but surprisingly spry acceleration, as well.<

The traditional i3 serves up a range of 81 miles per charge--perfect for short to medium jaunts in and around the city. Looking for a little more flexibility? The BMW i3 with Range Extender stretches that range to 150 miles.

The 2016 BMW i3 can be fully recharged in just 3.5 hours using one of the increasingly popular and prevalent Level 2 Charging stations, or up to 80 percent in just under a half hour using a DC Fast Charger. Quickly and conveniently check your charge when you sync your smartphone to your car, or use your phone to set automatic charging times.


Inside the 2016 i3, not only will drivers find a cabin that's very much in line with what is typical from the Bavarian automaker in terms of luxurious amenities and tech-savvy features, you'll see that the commitment to sustainability extends inward; in fact over 25 percent of the i3 interior used some form of renewable raw and recycled materials.

Considering the fact that the i3 produces zero harmful emissions, it's truly never been easier to be green.

All efforts to construct the i3 were based on recyclable and "green" materials, as well as "green" power and
every detail of the i3 puts emphasis on sustainability, because sustainability is an attitude.

Natural, renewable, and sustainable: the interior of the BMW i3 features door trim panels and a dashboard made from renewable natural fibres, naturally tanned leather, and open-pore eucalyptus wood sourced from 100% FSC®-certified forestry. Overall, 25% renewable raw materials and recycled plastics were used in the interior of the BMW i3. The textile upholsteries are made of up to 100% recycled polyster, produced using 34% PET. A further 25% recycled plastics are used in the exterior.
