The BMW i3 94Ah is an electric car that forms the first part of BMW’s i range of hi-tech electric and low-CO2 cars. It is an EV equally at home in the urban jungle as well as out on country roads and motorways
The BMW i3 can be rapid charged in around 40 minutes, fast charged in 4.5 hours or slow charged (on a standard 3-pin plug socket) in around 10 hours.
BMW’s new ‘LifeDrive architecture’ means this is literally a car of two halves: the aluminium ‘drive module’ at the bottom, and the carbon fibre and plastic ‘life module’ on top. This is the first time carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) has been used in mainstream car production.
By mounting the new car’s liquid-cooled battery – a lithium-ion unit of unspecified weight and capacity – within the central section of the floor, the i3’s centre of gravity is lower than all current 1-series models and handles well.
The new higher capacity 94Ah celled 33kWh battery improves the ‘real world’ range of this EV to 130 miles per charge – around a 50% improvement over the older 66Ah celled battery size.

"I have been driving a Nissan Leaf supplied by DriveElectric for over three years. The car is fantastic, is well engineered and a pleasure to drive. It feels very futuristic and clean and conventional internal combustion cars now seem primitive in comparison, so I will never buy another. I love the way the Leaf's satnav helps me to find charging points and have used it to travel quite significant distances without any problems."
"It's not just a great EV, it's a great car. It's quiet, it's comfortable, and it's spacious. It's safe. The driving experience is fantastic."
"My BMW i3 is the only car I have ever owned that gives me a grin every time I drive it. Cannot fault the service from DriveElectric, this is my second EV supplied by them and I'll be back for my third next year."
"Vicky at DriveElectric was a great help through the leasing process, including helping to organise test drives, putting us in touch with the right people and answering all our questions. As this was for our first electric car it was a great experience to feel relaxed heading into somewhat unknown territory."
