The electric motor of the BMW i3 was designed for use in city traffic and provides 125 kW/170 hp with a torque of 250 Nm. The full torque, which is typical for electric motors, is immediately available from a standstill and does not need to be built up first via the engine speed, as is the case with combustion engines. This gives the BMW i3 particularly high agility in every situation and impressive acceleration values: the BMW i3 accelerates from 0 to 60 km/h in under 4 seconds and to 100 km/h in only 7.2 seconds (7.9 seconds in the version with Range Extender). Equally impressive: the near-silent driving experience.
Redefining mobility means thinking far beyond environmentally conscious and agile driving. The innovative BMW eDrive power system is not only locally emission-free and offers incomparable driving pleasure; it is also a relaxing and near-silent driving experience.
