Introducing BMW’s First All-Electric Car the 2014 BMW i3
The new 2014 BMW i3 has been the topic of discussion for many car fanatics as of late. With its size and engine type, it is the start of a new era in the BMW automobile group. This 125 kilowatt car (equivalent to 170hp) is fueled by electric technology and is good for 80-100 miles of emission-free driving. That’s an exceptional amount of fuel saved from the 22-k Wh ion battery that helps move this car.
The i3 offers ample interior space considering its size comparable to the BMW 3 series but just on an overall smaller body. At just 151 inches long, the BMW i3 should have no trouble finding parking spaces in downtown urban areas while holding four people comfortably. Performance is also a major highlight of this car. BMW says the i3 can sprint from 0 to 60 in less than 8 seconds and reach speeds around 93mph. They also claim the i3 can charge 80% of its battery in just an hour, or six hours for a full charge on a standard outlet.
Inside the cabin there are 3 screens dedicated to climate, audio, instrument cluster, and other adjustment controls. As far as the remaining interior goes, the i3 is made from the same quality materials as the rest of its BMW family. The 2014 BMW i3 is projected to launch in the winter of 2014 so keep your eyes and ears open for this revolutionary BMW.
