2019 BMW i3 Overview

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 starting price of the i3 is $45,445 (all prices include the $995 destination fee) with the standard Deka World design, which features gray cloth seats, dark trim, and blue accents on the seats, steering wheel, and exterior. The Mega World design is an additional $1,400 and brings more renewable materials into the interior as well as leather and cloth upholstery. The Giga World is $1,800 more than the base price and includes leather, a wool-cloth material, and natural wood trim. The Tera World is $2,600 more and receives additional leather material trim.

Standard features include LED headlights and brake lights, auto-dimming and power folding mirrors, 19-inch wheels, and proximity entry. The interior features a 6.5-inch infotainment screen that connects with HD radio, SiriusXM, and Apple CarPlay, while heated seats, rain-sensing wipers, and adaptive cruise control are also included.

The Technology and Driving Assistant Package is available for $2,350 and includes LED headlights with cornering lights, automatic high-beam headlights, stop and go functionality, and an upgraded navigation system with real-time traffic information. Standalone options include a moonroof for $1,000, a wireless charger and a Wi-Fi hotspot for $500, and a park assist feature for $200.


The i3s brings more power, a performance suspension, and an increased top speed to 99 mph for an initial price of $48,645. A black roof and A-pillar, flared wheel arches, and 20-inch wheels add visual interest to the exterior. The four different designs are still available, as is the Technology and Driving Assistant Package.

Ranger Extender

The $49,295 i3 with Range Extender adds in bit of flexibility to the battery-only powertrain with its two-cylinder gasoline engine and 2.3-gallon fuel tank. It acts as a generator when the battery has nearly lost its juice. The standard and optional feature list mirror that of the battery-only i3.

s w/Ranger Extender

The i3s with Ranger Extender starts at $52,495. The added weight of the engine and generator reduces acceleration performance and EV range compared to the battery-only model. The features and options available on the i3s with Range Extender are the same with the i3s.

CarsDirect Tip

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.
