Electric driving is here to stay. Join the thousands* of drivers who enjoy the revolutionary performance and savings of the BMW i3. With zero driving emissions, an all-electric range of up to 193 miles**, over 14,000 UK charging stations, and annual fuel savings of up to £1,342*** versus a petrol car, isn’t it time you went electric?
Everything about the i3, every detail and every feature, is designed for life in and around the city. Driven by a locally emission-free electric motor, the BMW i3 guarantees mobility wherever you need it. Not surprisingly, the BMW i3 also qualifies for a full 100% discount in the London Congestion Zone.
Ecological considerations aside, the BMW i3 also makes a strong impression with its breath-taking acceleration at low speed or from standstill. It boasts an impressive real-world range of up to 100 miles^ thanks to high voltage lithium ion battery, For further flexibility, the BMW Range Extender adds to the achievable range.
With an emphasis on natural materials and modern design the BMW i3 creates an exclusive and innovative experience for driver and passengers. The pioneering, innovative approach has created a new understanding of mobility that has sustainability at its heart.
The BMW i3 and BMW i3s are both up to 85% recyclable. The battery modules can, for example, be reused as solar energy accumulators, and the excess carbon fibre is partially recycled for use in the production process.
In addition to this, approximately 27 used plastic bottles go into every car. These recycled plastics form parts of the seats and doors.
The BMW i3 produces zero driving emissions, thus reducing air pollution. More importantly, it's easy to charge with "green energy" or with energy generated by your own solar panels. What's more, the carbon fibre used for the BMW i3 is manufactured using half the energy normally required and entirely with hydroelectric power.
Charging is effortless, with easy and convenient charging methods, you can always rely on your i3.
The BMW i Wallboxes - These are simply mounted onto the wall of the house or garage and then connected to the homes electrical system, allowing for 70% faster vehicle charging than with the standard charging cables.
Public charging (AC) - Unlike a conventional household power socket, public AC charging stations have a higher charging performance and can charge the high-voltage battery of the BMW i3 to 80% of its full capacity in under three hours.
Public rapid charging (DC) - A DC (direct current) public charging station enables you to charge your BMW i3 extra fast. The energy is transferred with a constituently powerful current directly to the vehicle's battery. In this way, the BMW i3 can be charged to 80% of its full capacity in under 40 minutes. DC charging stations may be part of the BMW i Public Charging service ChargeNow.
Household power socket (AC) - Charging has never been easier: The BMW i3 can be charged to 80% of its full capacity at any conventional 230-Volt UK household power socket in approximately ten hours. All you need is the standard charging cable. To ensure a safe charging process, the socket should be checked by an electrician beforehand.
The Limited Edition BMW i3 stands out from the crowd with its unique equipment package and finished in an exclusive Mineral Grey metallic paint.
The following features are included as standard:
*10,000 BMW i3 vehicles on the UK roads as of March 2018.
**Figures are for comparison purposes and may not reflect real life driving results which depend on a number of factors including the starting charge of the battery, accessories fitted (post registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load. They were obtained after the battery had been fully charged. The BMW i3 is a battery electric vehicle requiring mains electricity for charging. The electric range was determined according to a new test (WLTP). Only compare fuel consumption, CO2 and electric range figures with other cars tested to the same technical procedure.
***This is an indicative estimation of the costs for electricity for a BMW i3 battery electric vehicle compared to the fuel costs for another vehicle. Calculation based on an annual mileage of 10,000 miles per year comparing a petrol fuelled car running at 40 mpg at a cost per litre of £1.30 to an annual electricity cost of £135 to charge a BMW i3. The electricity consumption of the i3 is calculated on the basis of the figures obtained in the standardised WLTP test cycle. These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. The actual consumption depends on a variety of factors, especially: wheel and tyre sizes selected, personal driving behaviour, selected route, weather conditions, usage of heating/cooling and preconditioning. Electricity and fuel costs are subject to regional variations and change in the future; they account for only a part of the total costs of ownership for a vehicle. Default figures for electricity and fuel prices per unit are the average fuel figures published by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy in March each year.
This calculation is taking into account the following: electricity cost per KW hour is 16.6p, fuel type is petrol, cost of petrol per litre is £1.30, the MPG of the combustion engine car is 40 and that this is compared over a 10,000 mile range.
^Range determined from internal BMW study under normal conditions and is dependent on individual driving style, climatic conditions and route characteristics.
