In recent years, test customers have driven over 20 million km with electric vehicles of the BMW Group. The wealth of experience from this flowed into the development of the BMW i3 drive system, in which the typical commuter operation required a recharging of the high-voltage battery only every two to three days – as the BMW i3has a range of up to 160 km* range, this is more than sufficient for everyday operation. For the BMW i3 with Range Extender, a range up to 300 km* is possible. The dynamic range display shows destinations that can be reached directly in the form of a vicinity outline; depending on the destination, the Range Assistant recommends switching to the ECO PRO driving mode in order to increase the electric range by about 30 %.
* Determined in internal BMW consumption studies. The driving range depends on a variety of factors, especially: personal driving behaviour, selected route, weather conditions, usage of heating/cooling and preconditioning.
