I3

Starting from £36,025

The new BMW i3 and BMW i3s were designed from top to bottom with sustainability, exceptional looks, outstanding handling, driving dynamics and battery performance in mind. Constant innovation and the drive to progress means that the new BMW i3 and BMW i3s have a common objective: to be class-leading electric vehicles.
 
Design

The new BMW i3 showcases an exciting and sustainable design, while the vehicle remains unmistakably BMW. The eyecatching U-shaped feature line in matt Black on the bumper and standard full LED headlights give the front of the vehicle a distinctively expressive look. With the new BMW i3s the sporty exterior design elements are guaranteed to turn heads. Particularly striking features include the unique i3s front and rear bumper design, 20 inch i3s alloy wheels with wheel arch extensions and lowered Sports suspension all result in a more athletic design.

Interior The interior of the new BMW i3 demonstrates a fresh approach to vehicle design. Depending on your choice of interior, the use of natural fibres and naturally tanned leather, or climate active wool and structured textiles, create an innovative interior experience. The open-pore eucalyptus wood makes a strong contribution here too, bringing the natural approach to life in an entirely new way. The aesthetic contrast in materials combines to create an exclusive and extremely attractive interior, whichever interior world is chosen. The new BMW i3 also keeps you constantly up-to-date from right inside the vehicle. From dynamic range calculation to current charge status or calculating the most efficient route, the BMW i3 provides a range of information to ensure you are always one step ahead. The wide range of BMW ConnectedDrive Services allow you to become connected to the world outside your vehicle by keeping upto-date with friends on Twitter, or browsing BMW Online to read the latest news and weather forecast.

Special Features

Balanced Looks.

The BMW i3 strikes a balance of sharp, sporty lines on the exterior and an open and flowing interior. The external dual-tone colour schemes work perfectly with the tactile fabrics and natural colours used for the cabin. This is all achieved using recyclable materials where possible to support the BMW i goal of sustainable design and production.
 

Green production.

From day one through to final production, sustainability is a core concept in the design and manufacturing of the new BMW i3 and BMW i3s; from the use of materials such as Kenaf throughout the interior to the production line in Leipzig which is powered completely by green wind power. Even once the car completes its service, 95% of the BMW i3 can be recycled and reused for the next range of BMW i vehicles.
 

Always connected.

The new BMW i3 and BMW i3s come with all the technology you would expect from a BMW. Driver assistance systems such as Park Assist (not available on the BMW i3s), Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go function and Traffic Jam Assist help to make every journey as seamless as possible. And with BMW Connected+ you can send route guidance to your car, share live trip status via SMS and control the climate in the car before you leave the house.
 

The power to get you there.

Constantly striving for better performance is at the heart of what we do, which is why the BMW i3 94Ah high-voltage battery has a customer-orientated range of up to 125 miles. Improvements in the charging process, development in the BMW i Wallbox and the increase of public charge points mean the BMW i3 charges faster and more conveniently than ever before.

Customer Feedback

Very good service all round.
