BMW offers both the 2018 BMW i3 and the new more powerful i3s as pure electrics or as plug-in hybrids with extended range. Both are sporty, quick and quirky with unconventional styling and advanced technology like lightweight carbon-fiber construction. The i3’s open-space interior concept also separates it from the pack, as does its nearly $45,500 entry-level price tag, which is high for the class.

For 2018, BMW has created the new i3s, which is a more powerful and better-handling version of the i3. Like the i3, it’s available as a pure electric or as a plug-in hybrid. The i3s packs 184 horsepower, which is 14 more than the standard model, and gets wider tracks, larger wheels and tires and a sport-tuned suspension. Prices start around $48,650.
