BMW German (electric) efficiency

‘Power of Choice’ is BMW’s rallying cry to show their commitment to selling more than 7-million hybrid and pure-electric vehicles by the end of 2030. Their new sustainability plan has already seen the release of the hugely successful all-electric BMW i3, with the i5 and i7 due to headline their ambitious 9 model growth plan (which also includes the MINI electric).

This historic German manufacturer has already sold more than half a million electric cars. If the BMW iX3 SUV and sporty i4 are anything to go by (and the concept iNEXT for that matter), then exciting – and electrifying – days are ahead.


Small yet mighty, the BMW i3 has set the standard for electric superminis. Packed full of tech like active cruise control and Apple CarPlay™, the BMW i3 is a brilliant and reliable electric hatchback.


The BMW i4 is basically a 3-series that’s shape-shifted into a Tesla fighter – still a riot to drive, now with zero emissions. Result! Reasons to buy include that drop-dead gorgeous Gran Coupe body, loadsa space inside (thank you super-slim batteries) and a top-spec version from BMW’s legendary M Division, as in M for motorsport. Blimey! You can scorch from 0-62mph in under four seconds or cruise for up to 366 miles, and the i4 rocks super-fast charging too – those Formula E outings must’ve paid off! Mind you, Formula E racers don’t get version 8.0 of BMW’s fab iDrive infotainment, or an EV soundtrack written by film score genius Hans Zimmer (yep, Zimmer wrote music for a Bimmer, he can retire now).


The iX3 is far more than an electric carbon copy of the X3. BMW’s first all-electric SUV features next-gen tech, brilliant range and a performance that only an electric car can give.

BMW has hailed the iNEXT as the ‘dawn of a new era’. Their next intelligent electric car, if you will. It’s rumoured to top the scale at an eye-watering £100,000 when it finally hits the roads, but this all-electric SUV has more tricks up its sleeve than Paul Daniels.
