5Series.net First Drive: BMW i3 at Auto Show

By Manuel III

I have a theory about the BMW i3: the you know about it, the more you it. When BMW first announced car, I knew nothing it, and I hated it. I thought the i3 was a nail in the for BMW.

This funky-looking car seemed like a complete from the sporty thinking made BMW great. To me, the BMW i3 represented an of driving pleasure.

I found my about the car were wrong I began to research it. Horsepower: 170 184 lb-ft pretty decent for an car. Weight: 2,800 outstanding especially for an electric Then I began reading the magazines first-drive reviews. and were promising.

In a nutshell, they thought the i3 was a product worthy of the BMW roundel. The specs combined with the reviews got me excited about the i3. I was to think this relatively electric car could be fun.

I drove it.

This is a real The chassis was tight, the ride was the interior was charming, and the power was sensational. For a person of the instant-gratification-seeking Y, there are few things as satisfying as the accelerator pedal on an electric and getting instant response of transmission kickdown.

This car s acceleration is like a and the accelerator pedal is the plunger on the needle. Unless you drive than 80 miles between this BMW offers everything you fun, comfort, and practicality a certain range).

Just driving the i3, I hopped into an A3 e-tron plug-in hybrid: a car at U.S. dealerships early in that will somewhat with the i3 (range-extender model). I did get to the A3 in its gas/electric hybrid setting, but I am this comparison on the Audi s mode.

When powered solely by the A3 e-tron s maximum power is 99 horsepower, but 204 horsepower when with the 1.4L, 150-horsepower gas engine. The Audi s electric feels more powerful its 99-pony rating would darting me through downtown s streets with the authority of a powerplant. It s an impressive car, but more body roll in the and more brake dive the i3.

Both the A3 and i3 s cabins were but the i3 suffered from some rattles likely due to its pre-production

What s the better car? The BMW i3, down. It s more fun to drive the A3, and better-behaved around town; if you think an all-electric car will you range anxiety, the A3 is the better or you could wait for the i3 with the extender, which offers a driving distance of 180 miles. The BMW i3 Range Extender will at $45,200.


U.S. pricing for the A3 e-tron has yet to be

I highly recommend giving the i3 a try it hits U.S. dealerships in the quarter of 2014. Futuristic notwithstanding, this is a fun car. it s also a great value you factor in federal and certain tax incentives that lower the i3 s to a level commensurate with equipped gas-powered BMWs.

I quite a bit about the BMW i3 now, and I it.
