The 2017 BMW i3

With the Model Year 2017 BMW i3 (94 Ah), BMW i has taken electric mobility to the next level. A new, extended-range BMW i3 is now available to accompany BMW enthusiasts on their daily journey joyrides included.

The innovative BMW i3 is constructed from the ground up primarily from lightweight carbon fiber for maximum range. With an electric motor delivering 170 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque the i3 is quick off the line, and the upgrade lithium-ion batteries for 2017 provide 115 or so miles of emission-free driving. The BMW i3 offers interior space comparable to the BMW 3 Series on a shorter overall chassis. Its low 32.3-foot turning circle and a relatively long wheelbase make it agile and engaging to drive, ideally suited to driving in dense urban areas. As perhaps the most sustainably-manufactured passenger car in the world, the story of the i3's production process is equally compelling as the driving.

NEW BATTERY / RANGE
  • Available in both Battery Electric BMW i3 and BMW i3 with Range Extender
  • 50%+ increased battery capacity of 94 Ah vs. previous generation 60Ah
  • Total battery energy of 33 kWh (gross) / 27 kWh (net) vs. previous generation 22 kWh (gross) / 19 kWh (net)
  • Electric range of approximately 114* miles (combined hwy/city)
  • Battery dimensions remain unchanged despite higher capacity
  • Slightly increased weight due to increased energy density
  • i3 REx offers 25% effective increase in fuel tank size (2.4 gallons vs. 1.9 gallons)

EFFICIENT CHARGING
  • BMW i3 (94 Ah) can charge the 33 kWh battery in approximately 4.5 hours using a Level 2 charger (slightly more than the approximately 3.5 hours required to charge the battery on a BMW i3 60Ah)
  • Standard equipment includes the occasional use cable for connection to a domestic power socket
  • The BMW i3 is equipped with the future-proof 50 kW direct current (DC) fast charging technology. When the BMW i3 (94 Ah) is connected to a DC fast charging station, the battery cells are charged up to a minimum of 80 percent of their capacity in less than 40 minutes. In the BMW i3 (60 Ah) this takes around 25 minutes. This means that the BMW i3 (94 Ah) achieves a charging speed of 2.5 mi/min, which corresponds to 24 minutes charging time per 62 miles of range.
  • ChargeNow DC Fast, offered by BMW in cooperation with EVgo, allows eligible BMW i3 drivers to enjoy 24 months of no cost charging sessions (at participating EVgo stations in select markets). Eligible and enrolled BMW i3 customers can use their ChargeNow card for unlimited 30 minute DC Fast Combo charging sessions and unlimited 1 hour Level 2 charging sessions.

2017 BMW i3 UPDATES
  • Standard profile includes
    • Deka World Interior Design Loft
    • No Cost DC Fast ChargeNow available for 2 years.
    • Advanced Real Time Traffic Information
    • Universal Garage Door Opener

5 greyscale shades and one hard to love color. Lame.

Let's hope the LCI shakes it up a bit.

They are stopping building the 60A pack next month. But, consider that there are people that do not need the additional cost or weight or range.
