EVERY GREAT REVOLUTION BEGINS WITH A CHARGE.

Meet the all-electric BMW i3 and the plug-in hybrid BMW i8. It's time to forget everything you once thought about electric cars and imagine a world powered by performance, design, innovation, and efficiency. This is the world of BMW i.

INTRODUCING THE ELECTRIC SIDE OF BMW.

The future is now the present and we’re living it. You can experience 420 lb-ft of thrilling torque in the plug-in hybrid BMW i8 and launch from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds in one of the fastest BMWs off the line, the all-electric BMW i3. This is pure BMW performance coupled with BMW’s innovative eDrive technology.

INTELLIGENT CONSTRUCTION

CARBON-FIBER REINFORCED.

Rethinking mobility from the ground up, BMW decided to use Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) to construct the foundation for both the BMW i3 and the BMW i8. This material is as strong as steel, but half the weight, allowing for incredibly responsive acceleration, impressive handling, and undeniable efficiency. The use of CFRP in mass-production vehicles is truly unprecedented and speaks to BMW’s pioneering attitude toward the future of mobility.

THE FRAMEWORK OF THE FUTURE.

BMW LifeDrive is a revolutionary architectural concept that was purpose-built for electric cars, designed specifically to reduce weight and increase range. Comprised of two separate units, the Life Module and the Drive Module form the framework for BMW i vehicles.
SMARTER MANUFACTURING

INNOVATION STARTS WITH i.

The process of building BMW i vehicles is just as important as the final result. That’s why the BMW i3 and BMW i8 are assembled in factories as smart as the vehicles themselves. In fact, the BMW i manufacturing facility in Leipzig, Germany is BMW’s most sustainable automotive plant, exclusively relying on renewable energy sources. And here in the USA, carbon fiber threads are manufactured at the Moses Lake, Washington, carbon fiber plant, which is completely powered by locally generated hydropower. Overall, the production of the BMW i3 uses 50% less energy and 70% less water.1

SUSTAINABLE TO THE CORE.

Our promise of energy efficiency goes far beyond our manufacturing process. The very materials we use to make BMW i vehicles, like the open-pore eucalyptus wood in the BMW i3, are handpicked not only for their beauty, but for their commitment to certified sustainability.
