THE FIRST GENERATION (i01).

BMW I Series BMW i3 I01 first generation three-quarter front view in lane

The BMW i3 is first introduced into BMW Centres in 2013. It is not only the first BMW with an electric motor, but also the first mass-produced vehicle ever with a carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) passenger cell. Its curb weight is similar to a normal compact car, even with the battery. Many BMW i3 components are also made of renewable raw materials.
 

The electric motor produces 170 hp (125 kW) with a torque immediately applied at full power. From 2016 the standard battery in the BMW i3 increased in capacity from 60Ah to 94 Ah. The BMW i3S, introduced in 2017, offers additional power producing 184 hp (135 kW). The introduction of the BMW i3 with a 120 Ah battery in 2018, saw the removal from sale of the optional range extender (a petrol engine to charge the battery) model in the UK. The range of the BMW i3 120Ah is up to 307 km (WLTP*) and the battery can be charged to 80% within 42 minutes at a fast charging station. Well over 200,000 vehicles have been built so far.
 

Production: 2013 – today

Engines: Electric motor (125 – 134 kW, 170 – 184 hp), optional range extender available until 2018 (0.65 l petrol engine, 28 kW, 38 hp)

Length/width/height: 3,999 – 4,011 mm/1,775 mm/1,578 mm

Range (electric): up to 307 km (WLTP*)
 

*These figures were obtained after the battery had been fully charged. There is a new test for fuel consumption, CO2 and electric range figures. The electric range shown was achieved using the new test procedure. Figures shown are for comparability purposes. Only compare fuel consumption, CO2 and electric range figures with other cars tested to the same technical procedures. These figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including the starting charge of the battery, accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load.

BMW i4.

The first all-electric Gran Coupé of the BMW 4 series sets new standards. Extraordinary performance is combined with excellent comfort and emission-free local driving.

THE FIRST GENERATION (G26 BEV).

BMW i Series BMW i4 G26 first generation three-quarter front view driving

Striking and superior: these are the all-electric Gran Coupés BMW i4 eDrive40 and BMW i4 M50 models. The dynamic, slanted headlamps contribute to the four-door’s expressive character, as do the rear wheel arches and rear side windows which rise toward the tail.
 

Delivering up to 544 hp (400 kW) from an electric drive means unparalleled driving dynamics thanks to maximum torque, whatever the speed. The BMW i4 glides along smoothly while the occupants enjoy the comfort of its almost silent ride. And the meticulous, precise chassis and steering design always provide the best possible control. Sophisticated weight distribution and the interaction of the suspension and drive components all play decisive roles. The range of up to 589 km (BMW i4 eDrive40 WLTP*) makes this electric vehicle extremely versatile and ideally suited to everyday use.
 

Production period: 2021 - today

Engines: Electric motor (250 – 400 kW, 340 – 544 hp)

Range: up to 589 km (WLTP*)

The fuel consumption of a small car with the performance of a sports car – the BMW i8 has it all thanks to its hybrid engine. With electric front-wheel drive, the coupé travels at up to 120 km/h, and the three-cylinder TwinPower Turbo engine powers the rear axle. The system delivers 362 hp (266 kW), and since 2018, 374 hp (275 kW), ensuring a driving dynamic that combines the best of both worlds. This pioneering vehicle is also the first production vehicle to offer optional laser light headlamps. From 2018, the BMW i8 is also available as a roadster, with more than 20,500 units built.

Production: 2013 – 2020

Engines: 1.5 liter hybrid drive (170 kW, 231 hp), 3-cylinder + electric motor (131 – 143 hp, 96 – 105 kW), combined performance 362 – 374 hp, 266 – 275 kW

Length/width/height: 4,689 mm/1,942 mm/1,289 – 1291 mm

Range (electric): 37 – 55 kilometers (NEDC*)

2021 sees the electric drive BMW X3 in the showrooms. The electric car is immediately recognizable from the outside thanks to the unique BMW i kidney. The interior boasts its own design features with, for example, the blue start button and the standard ambient light, preset in BMW i blue.
 

The vehicle’s technology is just as innovative and modern. The 286 hp (210 kW) engine allows for the dynamic handling typical of a BMW. Additional sustainability is ensured by manufacturing the drive system without using rare earths. The recuperation level can be adjusted to one of four settings depending on the comfort needed and this contributes to the 454 km range (WLTP*). On the go the battery can be charged to 80 percent at high-power charging stations in about 34 minutes.

BMW i Series BMW iX I20 first generation three-quarter front view driving

The purist form of the BMW iX with minimal but characteristic lines and seamlessly integrated details that boast a pioneering spirit. What’s more, there is the front T-shape with the slimmest headlight strips ever built by BMW, combined with the expressive, upright double kidney. Recessed door handles, frameless doors and the generously rectangular contours of the wheel arches unite to create a confident, modern aura.
 

But the BMW iX is also technically impressive with two powerful electric motors and the BMW xDrive all-wheel electric drive. The BMW iX xDrive40 model produces a total output of more than 326 hp (240 kW) with a range of up to 414 km (WLTP*). The driving experience is heightened to an even greater extent in the BMW iX xDrive 50, with more than 523 hp (385 kW) and a range of up to 612 km (WLTP*). Using fast charging stations (IONITY High Power Charging Stations), the full range can be restored on a charge of less than 40 minutes.
