The BMW i3 electric car, which we’ve been eagerly anticipating, is supposed to hit US shores in January 2014. The BMW i3 price is said to be €34,950 — or, in the US, $46,126 (before the federal tax credit, which is up to $7,500, and any other state or municipality EV incentives).

“In addition to a pure-electric model, there is a $2,000 option that will include the range extending two-cylinder 600cc engine,” Gas2 adds. “The engine will work only as a generator and have no direct contact with the drive axle. That is a fairly cheap ‘range doubling’ option.”

Just the other day, we shared approximately 1,001 details about the BMW i3. Jump over there if you want to know everything about the BMW i3. But if you just want a quick summary of the key features and specs, the BMW i3 has:

  • with the range extender, the car’s maximum range in day-to-day driving to around 160–180 miles (250 – 300 km)

    There is NO excuse for this car’s pathetic 22kWh battery. The EVs of 1997 and 1998 had a 27.3kWh pack. The Bollore Bluecar has a 33kWh pack. The entry level TESLA has a 60kWh pack and the top of the range TESLA has an 85kWh battery pack.
    This car should have had a 48kWh pack nothing less.

    a range of aound 100 miles is similar to the LEAF, FOCUS EV, SPARK EV and Smart-ED. Not to impressive to a BWM normally know as luxury cars.

      Yes they are ALL made by BIG AUTO that is their PRO OIL EV policy. Only TESLA and BOLLORE who do not make ICEs
      have longer range.
