2018 BMW i3

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.

2017 BMW i3

For 2017, the BMW i3 (94 Ah) receives a new, more efficient lithium-ion battery that extends its range to 114 miles, more than 50 percent over the base i3 (60 Ah). New standard features include no-cost DC Fast Charge for two years (where available), 19-inch wheels and Comfort Access.

About BMW i3

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 gets you a pure electric vehicle with a range of about 114 miles on a full charge. Add the range extender, which is a small 2-cylinder gas engine with a 2.4-gallon fuel tank, and the price goes up to over $49,000. This setup is good for a total range of 180 miles, which is more than the Fiat 500e, VW eGolf and Nissan Leaf, but shy of the range offered by the less expensive Chevy Volt and Bolt or Toyota Prius Plug-in.
