It certainly seems that BMW is in it for the long haul now when it comes to electric cars. It has become evident this is the shared thought amongst many manufacturers, as they invest more money into the infrastructure of electric charging and begin to pump out more and more EVs in the coming years. BMW has announced its plans to release several new EVs in the near future, including a new i8 roadster in 2018, a fully electric Mini in 2019, a fully electric X3 in 2020, and BMW’s autonomous electric iNext concept in 2021.Why is BMW investing so much in electric cars? BMW recognizes the growth in sales, sure. But from a marketing perspective, BMW states that, from experience, they know customers prefer to have choices. And BMW has taken that to mean EVs, so it is prioritizing electrification of its vehicle lineup to meet this demand. BMW currently has eight variations of electric vehicles available for consumers to purchase.Another realization that the manufacturer has attributed to the adoption of EVs is that the vehicles’ usable range is constantly increasing. This could be why BMW agreed to invest in a considerable sum in peppering the nation with more chargers in previously-unutilized spots. With BMW on pace to sell 100,000 electric vehicles in 2017, the charging infrastructure will continue to grow. The luxury brand shifting focus towards electrifying its fleet will only help to push this agenda, as well as help grow the brand’s sales numbers during the upcoming months. Large players like Tesla will continue to push the limits of adoption, as their vehicle offerings compete with an emerging market. BMW has shown its intent to compete in this rapidly changing market by offering more options to consumers.

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

Electrifying driving pleasure actually begins during the charging process. When the battery reserves of your BMW i3 run low, you can conveniently recharge the vehicle at home. Simply connect the BMW i3 via the standard charging cable to a conventional domestic 203-volt socket and the high-voltage battery regains 80% of its full capacity in less than ten hours. Charging is even faster and more convenient using a BMW i Wallbox, which our installation service will be delighted to set up for you. Depending on the design, it will be possible to charge your BMW i3 to 80% of its capacity in less than three hours. This is made possible by the particularly high charging capacity of the new BMW i Wallbox of up to 11 kW for the BMW i3 (94 Ah).

This is why we have designed the entire life cycle of the BMW i3 in line with the principle of maximum conservation of resources and sustainability. With the BMW i3 it’s easy to make sustainability part of your everyday life. Zero emissions at the point of use means less air pollution in urban areas and more fresh air for you to breathe. When you fill up with green power or generate your own electricity with solar panels, you get to enjoy totally emission-free mobility. And driving in ECO PRO mode cuts your power consumption and increases your driving range. Added to which, in your BMW i3 you generate virtually no noise or odours, benefitting both yourself and your environment. Up to 95% of the BMW i3 is recycable.

The BMW i8 is the German automaker’s $140,000 electric sports car that looks like it’s from the future. Newspress BMW claims that it can do zero to 60 in 4.2 seconds and that it has a range of 330 miles when the gas motor is used with the electric motor. When the car’s left on full-electric mode, it has a range of 15 miles.  It’s not one of the most incognito electric cars, but it sure is one of the most special.

Large, narrow tyres, aerodynamic wheel rims and an open design of the passenger cell: The entire exterior of the BMW i3 is geared towards electromobility. Headlights that were specially designed for the BMW i3, the Black Belt and the BMW i kidney grille round off the vehicle’s appearance. Inside the BMW i3 you can experience sustainability at first hand, because a large proportion of the materials used here are sourced from renewable and recycled raw materials. At the same time they underscore the sophistication and spaciousness of the interior.

PUBLIC CHARGING. There are many good reasons to get out and about in your BMW i3 – and even more opportunities to charge the battery away from home. The practical aspect: With the BMW i3, you can use public charging stations with both alternating current (AC) or direct current (DC). This not only makes you more flexible, it also enables you to charge your vehicle as quickly as possible. Because at a DC public charging station, the energy is with a constantly powerful current is transferred directly to the high-voltage battery, enabling the BMW i3 to be charged to 80 % of its capacity in under 40 minutes. If no DC charging station is available, you can charge up your BMW i3 at an AC station to 80 % of its capacity in under three hours. In this way, the public AC stations are particularly suitable for efficient charging overnight or when the vehicle remains parked for a longer period of time.
