Smart Mobile Integration


To make every journey an efficient one, you can use the integrated BMW i Remote app to sync your BMW i3 to your smartphone, Apple Watch, Samsung Galaxy Gear Watch and other mobile devices.[4] When connected, you'll be able to check your battery's state of charge, configure automatic charging times, set a comfortable cabin temperature through preconditioning, and even sync destinations, all before getting behind the wheel.

On-Board Navigation


The navigation system for the BMW i3, with ConnectedDrive Services, makes driving easy and convenient. At the heart is the Range Assistant with dynamic range map.[5] It takes into account your battery charge level, driving style, the traffic situation and topographical information to show you the most efficient route with the current battery charge. Another revolution in routing: If you can reach your destination quicker using alternative transport such as the subway or rapid-transit train, BMW i Navigation will show you current schedules and guide you to a parking space near the train stop.

The latest BMW i3 has a 114 mile range on a full charge—that's 50% farther than the first generation i3.[1] And with the Range Extender, your total driving range is up to 180 miles. This vehicle's gas-powered, two-cylinder engine generates electricity to maintain the charge of the lithium-ion battery at an approximate 5% level.

Powered By Intelligence


In the BMW i3, the accelerator pedal not only works in the obvious way of propelling the vehicle forward, it also incorporates the innovative technology of brake energy regeneration. The pedal converts kinetic energy into electrical energy to further feed back into the battery for added efficiency.

Stay Charged


The BMW i3 can be fully recharged in just 3.5 hours using a Level 2 charging station, and even quicker - up to 80% in 20-30 minutes - using a DC Combo Fast Charger.[6] At home, drivers can install a home charging station through the BMW Installation Services program. On the go, use the ChargeNow Card[7] that comes with your vehicle to access more than 23,300 U.S. charging stations[8] in the ChargePoint Network, including a growing number of DC Combo Fast Chargers.

Reinforced Plastic


Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP), that is. Unprecedented use of this material in the framework of the BMW i3 makes it one of BMW’s lightest vehicles, setting new standards in construction and safety. CFRP is 50% lighter than steel, but just as strong, and is actually the secret to this vehicle's remarkable performance and efficiency. Finally, the use of CFRP also contributes to the vehicle's spacious and airy design.

A revolution starts with revolutionary thinking. And when developing the BMW i3, engineers did just that by rethinking the vehicle’s architecture specifically for the needs of an electric vehicle. The result: a lightweight two-piece structure that increases agility, driving range, and interior comfort.
