VISIONARY FROM EVERY PERSPECTIVE.

The design of the new BMW i3.

FASHIONABLE, ALL-AROUND.

 

The exterior of the BMW i3 communicates agility from the very first glance. And it declares it in style. Dual-colour painted surfaces and short projecting edges are a model of modern design. The characteristic stream flow of the windows, which makes them appear as though they were a single surface, completes the appearance and provides a spacious panoramic view.

COMPLETE WITH INTEGRATED FREE SPACE.

 

The unique and spacious interior of the BMW i3 is palpable after just a single glance through the opened coach doors. The open, inviting design makes entry and loading simple and comfortable – without disregarding safety, since the closed doors assume the protective function of the B-pillar.

FASCINATING AT THE FIRST GLANCE.

 

The BMW i3 has "dynamic" written all over it. Its standard U-shaped LED headlights flank the symbol of the brand: the closed kidney. Below them, the bumper visually stretches out the front of the vehicle with large design turn signal lights and lends them an extremely powerful expressiveness in doing so.

SPORTINESS TO THE POINT.
 

The diffuser-like rear bumper measures 40 millimetres more than on the previous model and dominates the width of the rear. Positioned on the glazed tailgate, the letterings 'eDrive' and 'i3' are shifted outwardly and furthermore underline the sporty and solid stance. The logo with BMW i blue accents accentuate the characteristic black belt and highlight once more the evident sportiness.

THE GREATEST EFFECT IS IN THE DETAILS.

 

Selected accents round out every appearance. The BMW i3 demonstrates this in its purest form. The A-pillar and the roof pillars in black high-gloss with a trim strip in Chrome matt are examples of these fine details. They emphasise the innovative design of the vehicle and lend it a certain elegance.

BEAMING PRESENCE.

 

The particularly powerful front headlights utilise state-of-the-art LED technology for the low and high-beam headlights, side lights, daytime running lights and indicators. The road is better illuminated and objects at night appear in greater contrast. Headlight range control happens automatically. The side lights and daytime running lights come in a U-shape look. The high-beam headlights illuminate the road extremely brightly and evenly for several hundred meters.

TURN NIGHT INTO DAY.

 

The LED rear lights in the characteristic U-shape BMW i look include tail lights, brake lights and indicators. The light units also ensure good visibility in poor conditions and extend from the flanks right round to the tailgate. Reversing lights, rear fog lights and reflectors are integrated into the bumper on the right and left side.

MORE LIGHTNESS. MORE AGILITY.

 

As part of BMW's intelligent lightweight construction, the carbon roof made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) helps to reduce the car's mass, and shifts the car's centre of gravity lower. This leads to an increase in agility and dynamics when taking a bend, accelerating and braking.
