The BMW i3 was introduced in 2013. It is not only the first BMW with an electric motor, but also the first mass-produced vehicle ever with a carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) passenger cell. Its curb weight is similar to a normal compact car, even with the battery. Many BMW i3 components are also made of renewable raw materials.
 

The electric motor produces 125 kW with full amount of torque immediately applied at the wheels. From 2016 the battery was upgraded to a capacity of 94 Ah. The BMW i3S was introduced in 2017 with 135 kW of power. The introduction of the BMW i3 and i3S with a further upgraded 120 Ah battery meant that the optional range extender (a gasoline engine to charge the battery) was made unavailable since 2018. The range reaches up to 307 km (WLTP*) and the battery can be charged to 80% within 42 minutes at a fast charging station. Well over 200,000 vehicles have been built so far.
 

Production period: 2013 – 2021
Electric motor: 125 – 135 kW, optional range extender available until 2018 (0.65 l gasoline engine, 28 kW)
Length/width/height: 3,999 – 4,011 mm/1,775 mm/1,578 mm
Range (electric): 307 km (WLTP*)

Delivering up to 400 kW** from an electric drive means unparalleled driving dynamics thanks to maximum torque, whatever the speed. The BMW i4 glides along smoothly while the occupants enjoy the comfort of its almost silent ride. And the meticulous, precise chassis and steering design always provide the best possible control. Sophisticated weight distribution and the interaction of the suspension and drive components all play decisive roles. The range of up to 590* kilometers (BMW i4 eDrive40 WLTP*) makes this electric vehicle extremely versatile and ideally suited to everyday use.
 

Production period: from the end of 2021
Electric motor: 250 – 400 kW**
Range: Up to 590 kilometres (BMW i4 eDrive40 WLTP*)
