BMW i3 Review - Auto Express

BMW i3 review: http://bit.ly/16gv70B Subscribe to our YouTube channel http://bit.ly/11Ad1j1 Subscribe to the mag http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/yt The BMW i3 is unlike any other BMW we've driven before - it's all electric, has a body built from carbon fibre and is the smallest vehicle in the current 'i' line-up. The unique carbon fibre body never ceases to amaze us. It stops the car from flexing too much in the bends and it's resulted in a really low overall weight - the BMW i3 weighs in at just 1195kg, making it 300kgs lighter than the Nissan LEAF. There's no need for a B-pillar as the body is so rigid, meaning accessibility is great. The steering is nice and direct with just a hint of feedback - generally, it's a lot of fun. Albeit the roads on Amsterdam aren't the best dynamic test, but it's worth mentioning that even with all the torque from the electric motor and some skinny low grip tyres, it's not easy to do big slides. But the torque does come in handy - 0-63mph takes just 7.2 seconds, which is Renaultsport Clio territory. We drove the top-spec i3 with the Suite interior trim which is a perfect, futuristic design for this type of car. A special sat-nav comes as standard - this can direct you to a recharging point within the remaining range. Speaking of, the BMW i3 is supposed to be capable of covering 125 miles on a single charge (but that's in super-efficient ECOPRO+ mode). In the world of electric cars, the BMW i3 is definitely a class contender. It's not one of the cheapest options out there - the one we drove cost £25,860 - but it's highly desirable; a true BMW.

BMW i3 Range Extender review
I'm travelling along the motorway in a BMW i3 electric car on a return journey of 140 miles. In any other battery-electric vehicle this side of a Vauxhall Ampera or Tesla Model S, I'd need the AA on speed dial, but not today. So is this electric BMW i3 the car that will change the face of motoring as we know it? Many of the press reviews have been euphoric, with five-star ratings given out like they're on special offer. In fact, it's only really here at the Telegraph that any real caution has been exercised, when in his review of the all-electric version of the i3 Andrew English questioned some areas of interior build quality, as well as pointing out that this is still no replacement for a traditional family car. He gave it three stars.
