BMW s i3 electric car to have motorcycle range extender for 250 mile

The BMW i3, billed as an all electric urban will have an option for a range extender that offer a total driving of 250 miles.

At the North America Auto Show (NAIAS), BMW a range extender option for the all BMW i3 that adds about 150 of range. The BMW i3 is one of that company’s electrified vehicles, and has been as an all electric car designed for urban The other of those cars, the BMW i8, is a hybrid sports car.

The extender option for the i3 essentially a third model to the BMW i series, a hybrid version of the i3 which is every other plug-in on the market.

The BMW i3 was originally dubbed the MegaCity, away BMW’s intention for the i3 to be driven around town. the majority of daily driving is 40 or less per day and, the BMW i3 has an electric of 60-90 miles (not yet by the EPA). While it is logically that any electric car can handle daily driving with there is the range anxiety causing some prospective car buyers to shy away.

BMW notes with the MINI-E trial, the company placed hundreds of MINI’s under lease customers, over 90 percent of the needs of MINI-E participants satisfied by the MINI-E’s range. At the time some of the MINI-E wanted a longer driving than BMW was willing to install in an BMW.

The solution developed by BMW is a small motorcycle engine from motorcycle division. That is coupled with a generator, not in any way connected to the wheels, and is used to recharge the battery pack if The engine is housed in the trunk and presumably consumes some space.

The added cost of the extender engine will not be until the global launch of the BMW i3, is expected to occur during Q4 BMW began a world tour of the i3 and i8 in May BMW launched phase two of the company’s vehicle field trials, the ActiveE program that a year ago.

Phase one was the Mini-E trials in June 2009.

The point of the extender for the BMW i3 is not to deliver the same level in range extension but to provide a sort of limp mode. The i3’s electric train delivers 125 kW/170 hp, and a torque of 250 Nm (184 lb-ft), but not running in range extender

The i3 will also have SAE DC Charge support that give an 80 percent recharge in 30 minutes. One wonders why, for a car fast charge support, is interest in adding a gasoline This is the length to which BMW to comfort range anxiety

This version of the BMW i3 is unique plug-in hybrid vehicles. So that California has created a category, called BEVx. for the BMW i3 is expected (at this time) to be the qualifying vehicle. Additionally version of the BMW i3 will qualify for the HOV stickers in California, because car has its own category.

This BEVx was approved in January 2012 by the Air Resources Board (CARB). To as a BEVx, the vehicle must at least 80 mile electric and the whole result must be ultra low emission vehicle and zero evaporative emissions and TZEV warranty requirements on the system.

Some automakers proposed to the concept of an all electric vehicle a small auxiliary power (APU). BMW is simply the first one to on the idea.

This is one approach one car has taken to address the range concern. Another model be to offer the APU for rent, as needed, than a purchased item with the car. That way if you you’re heading out for a longer you head to the dealership to rent an APU like heading to the ski shop to ski’s.

Another model is, as Motors has done, to offer battery pack sizes so the car buyer purchases the range desire (85 kilowatt-hour 265 miles. 60 208 miles ). It is up to the automakers to put different in front of car buyers, to see which will gain traction.
