The BMW i3 six years on.

The BMW i3 has been leading a new era of mobility since November 2013: an era of sustainability, driving fun and intelligent connectivity. For more than six years, the BMW i3 has been a key contributor to electromobility’s growing attractiveness.

For this reason, the BMW Group will continue to further develop this vehicle and currently plans to extend production until 2024. “The vehicle concept of the BMW i3 is unique,” says Helmut Neumann, a customer from the town of Titz in Germany. The experience of customers who bought a BMW i3 in the early years of production has also shown that the attainable range only decreases minimally – even in vehicles with the original battery and high mileage.

The BMW Group’s high expectations for its high-voltage battery have been confirmed by the car’s consistent range. The BMW Group has also developed solutions for second use of batteries no longer suitable for high automotive demands. On the grounds of BMW Plant Leipzig, for instance, high-voltage batteries from pre-production vehicles and customers’ BMW i3 taking part in the retrofit programme provide storage for the green electricity produced on site by its wind turbines.

“In the past, I have also tested other electric vehicles, also larger and faster ones,” says Rob van Roon from The Netherlands, “but none of them was as agile and easy to handle as the BMW i3.” “Charging doesn’t necessarily mean waiting,” he adds, “I spend the time doing administrative work or making phone calls, which demands my full attention.” For longer trips, he has discovered the benefits of Ionity’s ultra-fast charging stations, which can already be found at around 200 service areas along Europe’s main long-distance routes.
