Under the i3's Hood

Purchasing the 2017 BMW i3 will get you an electric vehicle that has an electric motor. A lithium-ion battery pack powers the motor. If you get an available range-extended model then you will have a supplemental 650-cc that acts as a generator. The range-extended models have a fuel tank capacity of 2.4 gallons. Getting the 2017 BMW i3 will provide you with a 114-mile electric-only range. There is an available ECO PRO mode, and also an ECO PRO+ mode. The BMW i3 comes with a single-speed transmission. This is a rear-wheel drive vehicle we have been discussing. If you use a standard 110-volt outlet then recharging the battery takes about 20 hours. If you use a 220-volt outlet then recharging will take you around three hours to complete. This vehicle needs 32.4 feet available to turn around in a circle. The car is equipped with a four-wheel independent suspension and a stabilizer bar.

Design of BMW i3

The vehicle is a unique one not only because of its powertrain but because of its exterior appearance. By looking at the car's side windows you may see the shape of a bottle somewhere in there, with a spout just over the vehicle's rear wheels. Rear passengers will have an easy time both entering and exiting the vehicle because of how the rear set of doors opens outward. This vehicle is 157.4 inches long. Three trims--Mega, Giga and Tera--are available for the 2017 BMW i3. The Mega is the base trim and comes with 19-inch wheels, heated seats, BMW's ConnectedDrive, Sensa-Tec leather-like upholstery and a DC fast-charging port. If you would like a leather-and-wool interior then it's worth trying out the Giga model. The Tera comes with either Light Eucalyptus or Dark Oak wooden interior trim.
