As you might expect from models with energy-efficiency at their very core, the i Range has been meticulously designed to glide along the road effortlessly with streamlining and expert contouring being clear to see. From the compact i3 and i3s which is ideal for city life, to the sporty BMW i8 Coupé and the adventurous Roadster with its futuristic cockpit, every model within the range brings unique, breath-taking and modern style elements.
As a technology-enhanced, forward-thinking BMW series, the i Range promotes eco-friendly motoring without compromising on performance. The i3 and i3s, for instance, have an all-electric range of 193 miles, which means both models can travel from London to Brighton and back again without needing to be recharged. On average, electricity only costs 16.6p per KW hour, compared to petrol which costs £1.30 per litre, so you’ll be saving money as you re-energise your i3.
Hybrid models combine both an efficient engine with an electric motor and battery for a faultless performance. The i8 Coupé releases CO2 emissions of up to only 42g/km whilst exceptionally lightweight materials help to reduce drag and deliver unmatched sportiness. As for the Roadster, this capable powerhouse boasts the latest eDrive technology as well as a three-cylinder engine, which accelerates from 0 to 62mph in just 4.6 seconds
In having an all-electric vehicle powered solely by an electric motor, that is battery-powered, provides a significantly cheaper option than petrol and diesel. It produces zero driving emissions and more energy-efficient than traditional cars due to the reduced body weight.
Electric vehicles have fewer moving parts compared to a combustion engine.
On electric vehicles there are just three components – the on-board charger, the inverter and the motor. The BMW high-voltage batteries also come with eight years, or 100,000 miles warranty, whichever comes first.
