BMW i3 Review: A Power Packed Luxury Electric Car

The ‘2018’ re-fresh of BMW’s small EV ‘i’ car doesn’t hasn’t undergone so much change but it still has some freshness around it. After all, with just four years on sale, there’s not much need to make overwhelming changes.

Nonetheless the i3 still manages to look forward-thinking and fashionable even in mid-life. Among tweaks we are looking are an enhanced bumper.

Power is still drawn from electric motor with a single gear drawing from a lithium-ion high-voltage battery with a capacity of 94 Ah (33 kWh). This translates to 170 hp and peak torque of 184 lb ft. It is able to rush from 0-6 2mph in 7.3 and a top speed of 93 mph.

The i3 wittingly comes with four passenger doors, with the rear doors being rather small and swing open in the opposite direction of driver and passenger doors. Rear seat might not very comfortably accommodate tall riders as it spots just 31 inches of leg room.

About 15 cubic feet of cargo space is available with the rear seats in place. This gets to nearly 40 cubes with the second row folded.

There are a little more enviable additions including , a black roof swatch, 10 mm lower sports suspension, a 40 mm wider track as well a 20 mm-wider 20-inch wheels and black arches. Then there is Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) that ‘enhances agility and enables controlled drifts’.

The futuristic nature of this small BMW places it at a good sport for marketability going forward.
