The 2019 BMW i3 is the brand’s only all-electric vehicle, and it has represented BMW’s commitment to renewable materials and clean manufacturing since its arrival in 2013. The i3 carries a unique silhouette that may be too quirky for some, but for others, it aligns with high-tech powertrain and eco-friendly focus. BMW offers a small engine for some range-relief.

What's New for 2019
The biggest update is to the battery’s performance which enables a 153-mile range. Other updates include a full suite of active safety equipment, mobile-device wireless charging, Wi-Fi, and upgraded leather on the Tera World trim. BMW’s latest iDrive infotainment system and navigation are now standard equipment, while the Mega World trim gains an optional brown and gray interior color configuration and last year’s blue exterior color has been replaced with beige.
Choosing Your BMW i3
The lithium-ion battery pack has been improved in capacity and power to 120 Ah and 42.2 kwh without increasing in physical size. The standard i3 is motivated by a 170-horsepower electric motor, while the more powerful i3s features a 181-hp motor that drops the 7.2-second zero-to-60 mph time by 0.4 seconds. BMW claims it will require 6.5 hours to recharge it from zero to 100 percent at a Level 2 (240-volt) charger.
The i3 with Range Extender model includes a two-cylinder gasoline engine to act as a generator and extends the total range to 200 miles. The i3 models are only available in rear-wheel drive.
The 2019 BMW i3 with the Giga World trim with the optional package forms the best example of alternative interior materials, advanced technology, and modern safety equipment.
