Making its mark as one of the most advanced battery-electric cars on the market, the BMW i3 returns for 2018 with its intelligent design and sharp handling skills.

While the 2018 iteration gains an extra 122 pounds, the BMW i3 manages to retain its quick acceleration, agile handling on the road, while also managing to improve its already impressive braking power. It’s well-rounded as it is efficient, with an electric range of 200 kilometres as well as only 14.3 kWh/100km of electricity consumption. What also helps with its performance is its lightweight carbon fibre body that serves as the basis for its structure and reduces consumption on the vehicle. It’s both design and engineering built towards innovative electric driving.
Despite its compact design, you’d be surprised with how impressively spacious the BMW i3 is inside. You’ll find comfortable seating as soon as you open the doors, along with easy entry and loading because of its wide B-pillar doors. Not only is the inside of the i3 exquisite, but it’s also incredibly sustainable with its mix of high-quality and eco-friendly material making up the interior trim. It’s the amalgamation of both BMW quality and innovation, all for your comfort.
Another outstanding feature inside the i3 is the updated BMW iDrive system that gives you intuitive and easy-to-use controls for all your multimedia needs. For 2018, it also includes Apple CarPlay for a more streamlined iPhone experience, along with the option for you to upgrade to the premium Harman Kardon audio system when you want the best sounds quality for your music. Additionally, the i3 also incorporates an innovative navigation system that’s easy to operate that allows destination input through voice, rotary dial or by touchpad character recognition.
