BMW's i3 is a small electric car that has been around since 2013. It's a four-door hatchback with seating for four adults, and it can hold as much cargo as some minivans. With its aerodynamic shape, BMW says the i3 will get up to 124 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent).
You can drive 81 miles on a full charge, and the overall range increases to 114 miles when you include the BMW i3's range-extending engine. The car takes 4-6 hours to recharge on level 2 charging stations.
The i3’s electric motor is capable of producing 170 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque, which is enough to get you from 0-60 mph in 7.1 seconds.
The BMW i3 is a great handling car. It's fun to drive and it's the perfect car for city driving, but not so much on long stretches of highway. The steering wheel feels good in your hands, giving you plenty of feedback about what the road has in store. The suspension does a great job at absorbing bumps and keeping your ride smooth as can be.
The BMW i3 isn't the best car for long-distance driving, The seats are not particularly comfortable, especially if you want to take a nap or relax during your long road trip. In fact, its battery only lasts about 80 miles before needing to be recharged.
And, if you're a city dweller who wants to save money on petrol/diesel and be more environmentally conscious, the BMW i3 is a good car for you. It has an impressive range and will get you through your daily commute with ease. But it won't have the power of some other electric vehicles out there—if driving fast is important to you (or if you live in an area that's hilly), consider another vehicle.
If you’re looking for an electric vehicle that can get you from point A to point B without breaking a sweat, the BMW i3 might just be the car for you. It’s got plenty of cool features and design details that make it stand out from other EVs on the market today.
