Introduction

What Car? says...

Ever since it was first unveiled, the BMW i3 has played a major role in bringing electric cars into the mainstream. With its funky looks, impressive performance and clever carbonfibre and aluminium construction, the i3 has shown buyers that electric cars don't have to be white goods – they can be lusted after. 

Of course, keeping the i3 ‘current’ in a fast developing sector hasn’t been easy. Every few years BMW has taken the opportunity to update its sole fully electric offering by fitting larger, more energy efficient batteries. The latest 120Ah model now offers a claimed range of up to 160 miles in real world conditions and there’s even a sporty i3s variant that’s designed to deliver a more entertaining driving experience.
