2018 BMW i3 ratings and reviews
The 2018 BMW i3 is a compact hatchback electric vehicle comprised of a carbon fiber and aluminum alloy body structure. As an option, drivers can add in a gas-powered generator to extend the 2018 i3’s range. The new powertrain boosts the 2018 i3’s motor up to 184 hp, churning out 199 lb-ft of torque. Both the base model and the S trim edition include a 33-kWh Li-Ion battery with an approximate range of 112 miles. The new BMW i3’s feature revamped LED headlights and new body styling in addition to a sport drive mode for improved driver assistance. An all-new motor allows the 2018 BMW i3 to shave 0.4 seconds off its 0 to 60 mph acceleration time. For those who opt for the range-extender addition, the 2018 i3 boasts a modest two-cylinder engine which tacks on an extra 93 miles in range. Both trims are built on a 6-speed automatic transmission and feature a rear-wheel drive drivetrain.
