With its sustainable design and its undeniable agility, this is an EV that's bound to change the way you think about driving. Using extremely strong, yet lightweight Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic as its foundation, this vehicle is as innovative as the technology and renewable materials it contains. From this point forward, the world will follow in your tread marks.
The design of the BMW i3 opens a completely new world of design possibilities for vehicle interiors. By locating the energy storage in the floor of the Drive module, no center tunnel divides the interior. The entire Life module is available as an interior space and offers a completely new feel with an innovative and yet futuristic impression and unique new functionality.
The ample size of the Life module of the BMW i3 allows passengers to sit higher and look out over the interior landscape. This raised seating position is referred to as the 'semi-command' position and also provides for a clear overview in hectic city traffic. It also makes entering and exiting the vehicle more comfortable. Because the interior space is no longer divided by a central tunnel, it is easy to switch sides and exit the vehicle on the opposite side, when necessary, which proves quite convenient in difficult and tight parking situations.

Adrenaline rushes just as fast in kilowatts. The all-electric motor of the BMW i3 boasts 170 hp and a maximum torque of 184 lb-ft. The full torque is available from a standstill giving this EV the high-performance feel inherent in every BMW. Accelerating from 0-60 in approximately 7 seconds, the i3 maneuvers with impressive agility in just about every situation. Equally impressive is its silent driving experience. Efficiency has never sounded better.
