BMW’s i3 Hatchback proves that going electric doesn’t mean giving up on power or performance. This stand-out hatchback goes from 0 – 62mph in just 7.3 seconds and combines excellent, near-future styling with sustainable production and outstanding engineering that means you’ll still be able to leave more powerful vehicles behind at the lights – without emitting any pollutants when you do.
The entire i3 hatchback has been designed with electrifying driving dynamics and agility in mind, along with a fully sustainable outlook from design, to production and, of course, driving. The electric drivetrain BMW eDrive was developed by BMW and is exceptionally responsive, quiet, capable and surprisingly urgent, providing an electrifying ride as promised in the brochure. The turning circle makes the i3 notably easy to park and the regenerative braking allows kinetic energy to be harvested and slows the vehicle simply by removing your foot from the accelerator. Like BMW’s other models, the i3 offers a range of driving modes to optimise comfort and performance on any road surface. Comfort mode will support everyday driving conditions for a regular commute or running about town with a range of up to 125 miles, while ECO PRO and ECO PRO+ will increase the potential of your ride.
The i3’s interior is spacious and finished with interesting shapes, textures and materials that have largely been sourced from renewable or recycled raw materials. These sustainable principles are evident throughout the entire process of creating the i3 hatchback – energy from regenerative sources is also used in the manufacturing process. The cabin offers comfort and fun without being gimmicky and really does feel like a little slice of the near future when you’re seated behind the wheel. Heated front seats, BMW’s Professional Multimedia package, sat nav and real time traffic information are just some of the standard inclusions that make the i3’s interior stand out from other vehicles in the same class. ← read less
