So, where do BMW stand on electric cars?
Here's the lowdown:
- Carbon fibre compartments
The new BMW i3 and BMW i3s feature carbon fibre passenger compartments which are both lighter and stronger than steel
- Enhanced battery
The enhanced 120Ah battery provides you with a driving range of up to 182-188 miles, making it just as practical as its petrol engine equivalent
BMW has rolled out the ‘ChargeNow’ service with over 6,100 public charging stations, as well as the BMW iWallbox for charging at home
- Low running cost
The BMW i3 is more than just the green option. Electric cars have a lower per mile running cost than traditional petrol engines and they’re even exempt from vehicle tax and the London congestion charge (what a perk!).
- Low service costs
With fewer parts to replace than a traditional engine, services are no longer a constant worry or expense.
