BMW I3 electric car
When the new BMW i3 electric car was launched, all BMW fans were asking themselves if this electric car deserves the company slogan “Sheer Driving Pleasure”. The answer came fast and everybody was glad to discover BMW I3 features. The weight of I3 is equally distributed on the front and back deck. The engine is capable of 170 HP having a torque of 250 Nm. The engine sends power to the back wheels, so BMW I3 is a RWD electric car.
Even though is an electric car BMW I3 is not a slow car. For this car 7 seconds are enough for reaching 100 km/h from 0 km/h. Unfortunetly top speed is limited at 150 km/h, but for its purpose it’s a fast car. The engine is powered by a Lithium-ion battery and has a max autonomy of 130 – 160 km.A full charge is beeing done in 8 hours, at an average plug. If this features are not enough for you, well you don’t have to think to choose another car. BMW offers you the possibility of having a second engine. The second engine comes as an extra feature and it is an internal combustion engine, capable of 35 HP. When the level of charging drops under a specified level, the internal combustion engine comes into action rising the car autonomy up to 250 – 300 km. BMW I3 is the result of 40 years of researches in the field of electric propulsion.
Design of BMW I3
I3 is a MPV electric car, with enough space for 5 passengers, adapted for city. Its lenght is only 4 metres. With such lenght it’s the shortest BMW at this moment. Even though the frontal grille respects the brand tradition, BMW I3 has a unique frontal apperance. We can’t say the same about the back side. The back part of the car is tight and tall with lights incorporated into the hayon.
The rear doors are smaller than front doors and they have reverse opening. The access into the car is more facile, unlike other BMW coupes, but the inner side doesn’t reflect any sportivity. Even though the interior of the car does not have a sportive look, it has a very hi tech look.
