NOT JUST FOR RACECARS ANYMORE.

Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP), that is. Unprecedented use of this material in the framework of the BMW i3 makes it one of BMW’s lightest vehicles, setting new standards in construction and safety. CFRP is 50% lighter than steel, but just as strong, and is actually the secret to this vehicle's remarkable performance and efficiency. Finally, the use of CFRP also contributes to the vehicle's spacious and airy design.

BMW LIFEDRIVE ARCHITECTURE

A revolution starts with revolutionary thinking. And when developing the BMW i3, engineers did just that by rethinking the vehicle’s architecture specifically for the needs of an electric vehicle. The result: a lightweight two-piece structure that increases agility, driving range, and interior comfort.

BMW LIFEDRIVE ARCHITECTURE

Use of high-strength, lightweight CFRP has allowed BMW to rethink the passenger compartment. With no pillar needed between its doors and no transmission tunnel because of the Drive Module below, the BMW i3’s cabin provides an incredibly spacious experience, while retaining a high level of safety for all occupants.

BMW LIFEDRIVE ARCHITECTURE

The aluminum Drive Module cleverly integrates the BMW i3’s lithium-ion battery between front and rear axles, creating near-perfect 50:50 weight distribution and a low center of gravity for improved stability while cornering. Integrating the battery this way not only allows for agile performance, it frees up considerable space in the cabin above.

ON-BOARD NAVIGATION.

The navigation system for the BMW i3, with ConnectedDrive Services, makes driving easy and convenient. At the heart is the Range Assistant with dynamic range map.5 It takes into account your battery charge level, driving style, the traffic situation and topographical information to show you the most efficient route with the current battery charge. Another revolution in routing: If you can reach your destination quicker using alternative transport such as the subway or rapid-transit train, BMW i Navigation will show you current schedules and guide you to a parking space near the train stop.

SMART MOBILE INTEGRATION.

To make every journey an efficient one, you can use the integrated BMW i Remote app to sync your BMW i3 to your smartphone, Apple Watch, Samsung Galaxy Gear Watch and other mobile devices.6 When connected, you'll be able to check your battery's state of charge, configure automatic charging times, set a comfortable cabin temperature through preconditioning, and even sync destinations, all before getting behind the wheel.

POWERED BY INTELLIGENCE.

In the BMW i3, the accelerator pedal not only works in the obvious way of propelling the vehicle forward, it also incorporates the innovative technology of brake energy regeneration. The pedal converts kinetic energy into electrical energy to further feed back into the battery for added efficiency.

GO EVEN FARTHER.

Introducing the BMW i3 with Range Extender - it approximately doubles your electric driving range so you can breathe a little easier on drives where charging stations are not readily available. With this vehicle's gas-powered, two-cylinder engine, electricity is generated to maintain the charge of the lithium-ion battery at an approximate 5% level.
