There’s no doubting that the BMW i3 is one of the most iconic cars out there. It looks unique and, in typical BMW fashion, it has loads of styling details throughout the exterior and interior. It was one of the cars which got the electric revolution moving and is still amongst the class leaders in terms of range, performance and driver enjoyment.
Now let's get down to the nitty-gritty stuff. BMW reckon you can stretch your range to 190 miles if you drive carefully. If you have access to a rapid charger, you’ll be able to fully charge the battery in about 1hour 20 minutes or 80 per cent in around 35 minutes. A typical wall charger will deliver an 80 per cent battery boost in about 3 hours.
Power tops out at around 181bhp which means you’ll get lively performance with a 0-60 time of around 7 seconds and a top speed of 93mph. Okay, the i3 is aimed at city driving, but it is equally happy on the quicker stuff. You’ll love punting it around town thanks to having wheels pushed as far into each corner as possible. The ride soaks up lumps up and bumps at town speeds but is sufficiently firm to let you have some fun on twisty lanes.
What about costs? Well at current prices you’ll probably give the BMW i3 a full charge for about £4.62. For the same sort of mileage in a petrol powered car you’d be looking at about £20.
The Wagonex BMW i3 comes with leather upholstery, satellite navigation, rearview camera, parking sensors, LED headlights, and heated front seats. You can even heat or cool the interior remotely by using a BMW app.
