BMW Releases i3 Electric Car


Fans of luxury, electric cars have a great day today. BMW releases a new technologically advanced electric car: the BMW i3. This vehicle is set to take less than three hours to charge, being able to reach 93 mph. The i3 is released in London, New York and Beijing. The price of this BMW electric car is not as high as everyone would have expected.

The BMW i3 will start from approximately Eur 35.000.

The BMW i3 is part of the company’s “Project i” and will be the first zero-emissions mass produced car launched by BMW. It will be powered by a 170-horsepower electric motor, which will feature a 22 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery. The car impresses both with its spectacular design and with its features. The BMW i3 is expected to be a high-tech, luxurious car that will actually revolution the electric car industry .

Trying to solve the problem of the price, BMW came up with a payment idea similar to that used by the mobile phone market. Every month, the owner must pay a fee that covers the rent, recharging costs and potential updates. In this way, the company hopes to make it easier and more attractive to own an electric car.

The  BMW i3 Electric  is an urban car. Charged, it can be used to travel 160 km. You can recharge the car at special stations and the process takes about an hour. Charging the car, at home, at a wall socket, will take eight hours.

When the car starts running low on energy, a range extender will kick in. It is based on petrol or diesel and will help your car travel up to 300 km.

The lightweight design allows this car to reach speeds of more than 90 mph. It has a range of about 80 to 100 miles and can accelerate from rest to 62 mph in just 7.2 seconds. It uses carbon fiber and reinforced plastics in lightweight aluminum chassis and parts, with the main purpose to reduce weight.

To gain extra range, this car also features an ECO PRO mode.

This is an almost no noise vehicle. In its interior, the electric car is made of all natural materials, such as hemp fibers in door panels and a contoured wood shelf in the dashboard. This gives the BMW electric vehicle a unique and beautiful look.

I3 is an extremely important development for BMW and the image of this company. BMW has become widely known as a luxury vehicles manufacturer, now the company introducing various models of green vehicles to its public.

This BMW electric car will be officially presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. BMW has in production a hybrid vehicle as well, the i8. The famous vehicle manufacturer will probably release two more electric cars in the near future, i4 coupe and i5 saloon.

The BMW i3 will be available in USA showrooms starting with the second quarter of 2014.
