Very quick charging 

With an optional level-2 charger installed at home, the 2017 BMW i3 is able to achieve an 80% battery charge in as little as 40 minutes (4x faster than charging with a conventional 110V wall outlet). Level 2 chargers require the same type of electrical connection as a washer and dryer and are readily installed in most homes. In many areas, DC charging stations are available to charge the i3 in even less time. For owners, this means increased convenience and peace of mind. 

Added convenience

The 2017 BMW i3 features the type of convenience features customers have come to expect from the luxury brand. This includes keyless entry with push-button start as standard features for 2017. Ingress and egress are aided by the i3’s elevated seating position and innovative rear door design that creates one large opening for people and cargo. Buyers with smartphones will be happy to find that the i3 has seamless Bluetooth integration for audio, calls, and more.

A new way to drive a vehicle 

One of the 2017 BMW i3’s most innovative features is its regenerative braking system. Once the driver lifts his or her foot off the accelerator, the i3 automatically initiates a regenerative system that transforms the vehicle’s kinetic energy into electricity that is routed to the battery. What this means for the driver is that in most driving scenarios, the use of the brake pedal is unnecessary. In addition to increasing the range of the i3, the regenerative braking system reduces normal wear-and-tear on the disc brake system.

A practical vehicle 

With its compact appearance, buyers may be surprised to learn that the i3 has ample interior space. Designed with practicality in mind, the BMW i3 not only affords the passengers ample cabin space but also makes it easy to get in and out of the car. Large driver and passenger doors reveal the reverse-opening passenger doors that make an entry for passengers and cargo surprisingly comfortable.
