2017 BMW i3 Review

From its aerodynamic styling to its inherent BMW agility the BMW i3 was designed from the outset to be an all-electric vehicle that changes the way you think about driving. You’ll feel its incredibly responsive acceleration from a standstill. In fact the BMW i3 is one of the fastest BMWs off the line. Choose from three models: i3 60 ah say the letters A and H i3 and i3 with Range Extender. With its 33-kiloWatt-hour battery the i3 goes 40 percent farther on a charge than the already stellar range of the i3 60 ah and the i3 with Range Extender adds almost 70 more miles. Your i3 is as green inside as it is under the hood. Over 25 percent of the interior uses renewable and recycled materials. Up to four passengers can enjoy the eco-space or you can fold down the rear seats for an incredible 36.9 cubic feet of trunk space. Customize your i3 by choosing from a variety of exterior colors and interior finishes for a truly unique driving experience. It’s a better way to drive. Take an incredible BMW i3 for a test drive today.
With i ConnectedDrive Services the BMW i3 navigation system makes driving easy and convenient. The available Range Assistant with dynamic range map takes into account your battery charge level driving style traffic and topographical information and shows you the most efficient route. Make every journey an efficient one with the standard integrated BMW i Remote app. Sync your i3 to your smartphone smart watch and other mobile devices; when connected you'll be able to check your battery's state of charge configure automatic charging times and more—all before getting behind the wheel.
Safety doesn’t take a back seat in the BMW i3. BMW’s LifeDrive architecture featuring a Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic passenger-cell Life Module and a lightweight aluminum Drive Module isn’t just ultra-light it’s ultra-safe. And in addition to the i3’s standard safety features the available Technology and Driving Assistant Package adds safety features like Collision Mitigation Frontal Collision Warning Pedestrian Protection and more. The available Parking Assistance Package adds features like Park Distance Control Parking Assistant and a Rear View Camera to make even the most difficult parking spaces more accessible.
Once you touch the Start/Stop button two flat-panel instrument displays spring to life and your all-electric BMW i3 driving experience begins. 184 pound-feet of instant torque is powerfully evident every time you step on the accelerator. With brake-energy regeneration the brakes convert kinetic energy into electrical energy to feed back into the battery for added efficiency. Your i3 can be fully recharged in just four and a half hours using a Level 2 charging station and up to 80 percent recharged in 30 to 40 minutes using a DC Combo Fast Charger
