About the BMW i3

BMW i3

With its inherent BMW performance and its undeniable agility, this is an electric vehicle that’s bound to change the way you think about driving. Using extremely strong, yet lightweight Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) as its foundation, this vehicle is truly as innovative as the technology and renewable materials it contains.

The unique construction of the BMW i3 makes it different from any other vehicle on the road. From its aerodynamic exterior to its innovative interior, this is an electric vehicle that was purpose-built to not just perform, but perform smarter.

The BMW i3 is one of the fastest BMWs off the line. Its incredibly responsive acceleration is felt immediately from a standstill with 184 lb-ft of pin-you-to-the-back-of-your-seat torque4 making for an exhilarating and exceedingly fun ride. Surprised? You shouldn’t be. After all, this EV is a BMW.

The open interior of the BMW i3 creates a new definition of luxury and is characterized by the visible use of natural resources. In fact, over 25% of the interior uses renewable raw and recycled materials. Inside, up to four passengers can also enjoy the vehicle’s surprising spaciousness (equivalent to that of a BMW 3 Series) in addition to 36.9 cubic feet of trunk space with rear seats folded flat.

Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic, that is. Unprecedented use of this material in the framework of the BMW i3 makes it one of BMW’s lightest vehicles, setting new standards in construction and safety. It is actually the secret to this vehicle’s remarkable performance and efficiency. Finally, the use of CFRP also contributes to the vehicle’s spacious and airy design.

To make every journey an efficient one, you can use the integrated BMW i Remote app to sync your BMW i3 to your smartphone and other mobile devices.5 When connected, you’ll be able to check your battery’s state of charge, configure automatic charging times, set a comfortable cabin temperature through preconditioning, and even sync destinations, all before getting behind the wheel.
