2016 BMW i3 ratings and reviews

As the electric car segment gets more and more crowded, vehicles such as the 2016 BMW i3 need to do what they can to stand out. The 2016 i3 does that through unique styling and a futuristic interior. The electric care comes in your choice of three trim levels, dubbed "worlds" by BMW. The base level trim, Mega, offers LED headlights, heated seats, a navigation system, 19-inch wheels, BMW's ConnectedDrive system (which connects to your smartphone), and a DC fast-charging port, which charges the battery to 80 percent in about 20 minutes. The next level up, the Giga model, includes wood and leather interior, keyless entry system, and a sunroof. Tera models, the top-of-the-line options, have 19-inch wheels and full leather upholstery. The i3 is powered by a Hybrid-synchronous electric motor with a 22-kWh lithium-ion battery. There's the option of tacking on a 650-cc gasoline engine "range extender," which acts as a generator and powers up the electric motor.
