DRIVE FURTHER, FASTER.
WITH POWER AND DRIVE. 

Range, charging and & efficiency of the new BMW i3.

THE ORIGIN OF ELECTRIFYING DRIVING PLEASURE.

From the chassis to the passenger cell – the intelligent combination of driving and lightwheight components enable the unparalleled dynamics of the BMW i3. Thanks to the fully-electric drive train BMW eDrive, the BMW i3 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.3 seconds, without interruption. The BMW i3s sprints even faster, with 6.9 seconds. The electric engine of the BMW i3 provides with a performance of 125 kW and a torque of 250 Nm emission-free driving pleasure for up to 200 km. The optional range extender switches on when the battery is low on charge, and can extend the range up to 330 km. The Life module describes the modern passenger cell made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP). Also often referred to as carbon, this material is not just particularly light but also stronger and more resilient than steel. The low weight and low-lying centre of gravity boost both agility and range.

 

DYNAMIC, WITHOUT INTERRUPTION.

 

Powerful. Silent. Direct. Thanks to the fully-electric drive train BMW eDrive, the BMW i3 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.3 seconds, without interruption. The BMW i3s sprints even faster, with 6.9 seconds. A slight touch of the accelerator is enough to unleash all available torque instantly to the road via the rear wheels.

INNOVATION TRANSFORMED INTO FORWARD MOMENTUM.

 

With a performance of 125kW and a torque of 250 Nm, the electric engine of the BMW i3 provides emission-free driving pleasure for up to 200 km. The optional range extender increases this distance even more. The 2-cylinder petrol engine switches on when the battery is low on charge, and can extend the range up to 330 km.

LIGHTNESS CARRIES WEIGHT.

 

Life module is the term BMW uses to describe the modern passenger cell made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP). Also often referred to as carbon, this material is not just particularly light but also stronger and more resilient than steel. The low weight and low-lying centre of gravity boost both agility and range.

CHARGE FAST AND EASY, EVERYWHERE.

Never before was charging this simple: The intelligent charging options of the BMW i3 allow flexibility and convenience at the highest level. With digital services, you can plan the charging process more clearly than ever before – regardless of whether you're at home or out and about.

 

If energy reserves of your BMW i3 are running low, you can charge quickly and conveniently with the BMW i Wallbox, the BMW i Wallbox Plus and the BMW i Wallbox Connect. Depending on the version you can charge your BMW i3 in less than three hours up to 80% of the charging capacity. This is possible due to the three-phase charging power of the new BMW i Wallbox of up to 11 kW for the BMW i3. Our installation service would be happy to install the wallboxes for you.

In addition, you have the option to use green energy and solar energy you have generated yourself, for quick charging and even greater sustainability.

There are many reasons for you to be out and about with your BMW i3 – and just as many opportunities to charge it while you are. First, the practicalities: With the BMW i3, you can use public charging stations with either alternating current (AC) or with direct current (DC). This will make you more flexible and will allow you to charge the vehicle as quickly as possible.

This is because at a public DC charging station, the energy is transferred directly into the high-voltage storage in the vehicle battery at a constant current flow rate. This allows the BMW i3 to be charged up to 80% in 39 minutes. If no DC station is available, you can also charge the BMW i3 up to 80% capacity in under three hours at an AC charging station. Public AC charging stations are particularly well-suited for efficient charging overnight or during long periods of the vehicle being parked.
