BMW’s 2015 i3 Loaded Up With More Features
Irvine BMW is excited to confirm, the dashing electric city car from German automaker BMW, dubbed the i3, just keeps getting better. BMW has added more features to the new 2015 model of its iconic electric city car, the i3, after winning a strong year of sales.
- The new i3 is equipped with standard heated seats for the added comfort of the driver and passengers in cooler months and is now fully compatible with the combined charging system (CCS) as a standard feature.
- i3 is rated as one of the fastest electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions available.
- BMW has reportedly sold nearly 18,000 of its electric i3 and the i8 plug-in hybrid sports car units in 2014, almost twice its own initial projections of about 10,000 units.
With its stubby styling and revolutionary carbon-fiber/aluminum structure, the i3 takes BMW’s driving principles to a new realm. For example: In our testing, it went from zero to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds. Driving dynamics are on hand, too, thanks to the car’s low center of gravity. The EPA estimates the range at 81 miles per charge; it can charge in three hours from a 220-volt outlet. An optional range-extending gas engine provides a total range of 150 miles and helps quell dead-battery anxiety.
Irvine BMW’s helpful and knowledgeable staff, expert factory-trained technicians, state-of-the-art service department, comprehensive parts department and one of the nation’s largest selections of new, used and certified pre-owned BMWs have made Irvine BMW a landmark in Southern California’s automotive landscape.
