We love the cutting-edge design and innovative technology solutions built-into the i3, that pave the way for the new era in mobility. The vehicle is lightweight and strong, thanks to carbon fiber reinforced plastic.
BMW’s Connected Drive technology unlocks some cool Driver Assistance Systems such as Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go function and Traffic Jam Assist, which help make journeys as seamless as possible.
The stylish coach doors on the i3 make it convenient for you and your passengers to get in and out of the car. It definitely stands out among all the other cars in its segment.
BMW’s eDrive drivetrain ensures that full torque is not only available from a standing start, but also keeps coming without delay; unlike a traditional engine, which increases incrementally with the gears.
For the geekier guys and gals, you can personalise your car with tons of apps and services available on Connected Drive! Real time traffic information, Concierge services, Apple CarPlay and much more.
Focus on Sustainability
BMW has created a product that has sustainability as its key defining characteristic. From recycled plastic to using kenaf harvested from Malva plants for interiors to using olive leaves to tan the upholstery, the i3 is truly an authentic product that creates a positive impact.
The luggage compartment capacity is modest at 260 liters as compared to other vehicles in its segment. However, the foldable second row seats offer a maximum capacity of 1,100 liters which would appeal to the more adventurous among you.
3THIS IS JUST AN ESTIMATE: We've taken a vehicle that it more or less comparable. We're not making promises here. It's simply to make the point that you can save money by not spending as much on fuel. Fuel meaning what powers the car. That could be Petrol, Diesel or Electricity. We're not lying or trying to decieve you – so don't hold us to it. It's an estimate.
**How we've calcualated this estimate:** The running costs are estimated based on the selected mileage and the type of fuel that is used to drive the vehicles. In case of electric vehicles, the cost per mile is calculated based on the vehicle’s battery capacity and the WLTP range of the vehicle. The total cost is then a multiple of cost per mile and the annual mileage.
**Electricity cost** = (Battery capacity kWh x UK Average electricity cost 4 £ / WLTP range miles) x Annual Mileage miles
For the combustion vehicle, a comparable model in price and performance is chosen. The amount of fuel required to cover the mileage multiplied by the cost per gallon would provide the total cost.
**Fuel costs = **(Annual Mileage miles / MPG miles/gallon) * Fuel cost per gallon5 £/gallon
The savings is the difference between the two.
