Production BMW i3 revealed

At long last, BMW has unveiled the production version of the brilliant new i3 electric car. Everyone at Elms Cambridge is delighted and excited to be one of a handful of dedicated BMW i dealerships.

Prices start from £25,680, including the government’s £5000 grant for low-emission vehicles. The i3 Range Extender, which uses a small two-stroke petrol engine to increase the car’s range from 80-100 miles to 160-186 miles, is priced from £28,830.

The electric motor generates an output of 170hp, with peak torque of 250Nm on demand instantly. This allows the BMW i3 to sprint from zero to 37mph in just 3.7 seconds and from 0-62mph in just 7.2 seconds. Be in no doubt, this is a true BMW.

Both BMW i3 models include a three-year, unlimited mileage vehicle warranty and an eight-year, 100,000 mile battery warranty. The battery is also included in the price of the car so avoiding any separate lease charge for battery, as is the case for other electric vehicles.


We can’t wait to drive the car ourselves closer to its November on-sale date. If you feel the same, contact the team at Elms Cambridge.
