BMW i3 Hits U.S. Shores

BMW i3 Hits U.S. Shoreszoom in

Back in January, we had an opportunity to drive the BMW i3, and thought that they really hit the mark with their enigmatic electric vehicle. At the time, the car was available only in Europe, and U.S. deliveries hadn’t started. That changed this week, with BMW taking the first U.S. shipments of the i3.

To refresh your memory, the i3 is a pure-electric daily driver which can go about 90 miles on a charge, and can be upgraded with a diesel generator range extender option as well. The vehicle’s lightweight carbon fiber reinforced plastic construction helps keep its weight down, and we love its use of unconventional, sustainable materials and its surprisingly spacious interior.

The BMW i3 is available now for U.S. customers, with pricing starting at $41,350(USD) for the base model, and $45,200 with the range-extender.
