2017 BMW i3 94ah Review - Inside Lane

2017 BMW i3 94ah Review - Inside Lane watch video online


This is the new 2017 BMW i3 94ah Range Extender and it now has a 243 mile range. A new 94ah battery means that it can also be charged from a DC socket up to 80% in just 40 minutes. The electric motor produces 168bhp and it will do 0-62mph in 8.3 seconds. The Rex, or range extender, is a small 2 cylinder engine that acts as a generator when the battery is low. Seating 4 adults, the new BMW i3 has a spacious interior and its silent running is very relaxing. The latest incarnation of iDrive infotainment is easy to use and offers everything from satellite navigation to DAB radio and streaming services. There is also a smartphone app that can be uses as a remote for the car. The 2017 BMW i3 94ah costs from £27,830 (with UK government electric car grant) or the Range Extender from £30,980.

Body design is very reminiscent of the old Audi A2. Separated at birth? Particularly side on...

It's a carbon fibre body for less than 35k

Good car but overpriced!

36k is still allot to pay for a car with only 200 miles range which resembles a shoe box
.
With this money You can buy a BMW 4 series coupe diesel with 900 miles range and use the 7000 pounds saved to run the car for the next 8 years

Best honest review so far, had one for a weekend, and this review is saying everything I thought, even on the 20" rims, thank you you have made my mind up now, i'm going to order one, but after the Frankfurt show on the 14th of September, just to wait and see what the i3S sport version is all about.

Great car and an excellent review!!!

Apologies, I meant to also say that I enjoyed the review and to say thank you.
Still, take that car on a limit handling track and safely see where its weaknesses are and that would open up another debate. How do those pram wheels and tyres handle a bit of work? That's where their safety lies, not pootling around without incident.

BMWs are known as 'driver's cars'. The reason for this, is the way they are balanced and for their geometry. The i3 is not designed to be a driver's car, it is designed to be an average driver's car. The reasons for this are its wheels, tyres and balance. You try putting this space age geek-fest mobile into a progressive bend on any country road and you will not only feel very insecure, you will find yourself rapidly losing speed on the apex of the bend, which is where most driver's and riders find themselves skidding off at a tangent. This being the case, in order to counteract this effect, you would need to lower the car and setup its geometry accordingly and change the wheels and tyres. In short, BMW didn't design a BMW and that is a major miscalculation on their part as if they had, the argument for any other BMW over and i3 wouldn't exist. If I don't enjoy driving it, I won't buy it no matter if it costs me less per mile to fuel than an ICE. Besides all of that, EV depreciation is a deal breaker for anyone without a mysterious income source.

most gas cars do more than 247 miles. you will be more inconvenienced when you need to "fill up" because a conventional gas car takes less than 10 mins to "charge", where this will take hours, unless you can locate a DC fast charger, which are rare.

the REX model is the most versatile configuration.

How is the battery life when using the AC? I live in Las Vegas & we use the AC on high about 6 months.

Great review. One correction: Regenerative braking in the i3 is independent of the driving mode

So they put four moped tires, a moped engine and a bigger battery on a bmw and charge 27.K? Paying that much overall upfront, did you really save alot of money at the pump?

Wonder why BMW didn't opt for a micro-turbine range extender engine.....instead of the two cyl banger. MTs seem to be buzz lately for range extenders lately
