DESIGN & SAFETY
The i3 is hands down one of the most recognizable cars on the road, thanks to its eye-catching body style. While it doesn’t look like your classic BMW, the i3 still retains BMW’s typical dynamism thanks to the larger diameter wheels and the very short overhangs both on front and rear. The car’s distinctly boxy shape suggests roominess and efficiency on the inside, and a “hey, look at me” attitude on the outside. The i3 further expresses itself through unique design features, including the black bonnet and the side window graphics that go through the rear pillar.If you’re looking to make a statement with your ride, the i3 has got your back. Where the i3 really stands out though, is with its Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic foundation. This material is as strong as steel, but half the weight, resulting in incredibly responsive acceleration, impressive handling, and undeniable efficiency.
COMFORT & CONVENIENCE
The open interior of the BMW i3 creates a new definition of roomy. With no pillar needed between its doors and no transmission tunnel because of the Drive Module below, the BMW i3’s cabin provides a spacious ride. You can even remove the B-pillar and center console to create even more openness. All that room also comes with a view. The driver’s seat of the i3 is located higher to provide drivers a commanding view of the road, while expansive windows offer passengers 360 degree views of the city of Angels. Luxury reimagined is an understatement. Over 25% of the i3’s interior uses renewable raw and recycled materials, so you can look cool and feel good while doing it.This fully sustainable system also comes with a fully comprehensive network. The included integrated SIM allows you to enjoy full connectivity with the outside world. Use BMW’s i ConnectedDrive system to safely navigate to your destination, stay powered up with public charging station location services, and even find an empty parking spot.
PERFORMANCE & POWER
The BMW i3 is one of the fastest BMWs off the line. Thanks to its ultra-lightweight and strong LifeDrive architecture, coupled with an advanced battery system, cutting-edge controls and high-efficiency electric motors, the i3 has a lively 0–60 mph time of 7 seconds. Its incredibly responsive acceleration is felt immediately from a standstill with 184 lb-ft of pin-you-to-the-back-of-your-seat torque making for an exhilarating and exceedingly fun ride.
