2018 BMW i3 LCI spied - Power bump and 'S' model coming

2018 BMW i3 LCI

The BMW i3 is getting a facelift for model year 2018 and we spotted a prototype just outside of Munich in Germany. The visual changes will not be so extreme but we can see a new designed front bumper featuring fog lights in a different shape as well as headlights with new graphics. The rear bumper is also covered so we can expect a few changes there as well.

Inside, the i3's dashboard is expected to be refreshed with an updated infotainment system, most likely some variant of iDrive 6.

But the big changes are under the skin as we believe that the i3 will get a new top model with the i3S. Most likely an upgraded version of the current i3 electric engine giving it some hot hatch performance. The regular i3 version will most likely also benefit from a small power bump and also an extended range.

Expect both versions to make their debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September.

Why? people don't like the CT200h, it's VERY slow, it's a hybrid (not electric), it drives like a Lexus, and has the piss poor Lexus electronics and nanny controls to prevent you from having fun. No thanks... let BMW do it their way.
