The range of the BMW i3 grows with age. Now there is another good serve.
BMW again increases the range of the i3 electric small car. Starting in November, the four-seater battery with 42,2 kWh will replace the previously used version with 33 kWh. The power supply, which has been increased by around 30 percent, measured according to the new WLTP standard, should be sufficient for a journey of up to 310 kilometers. So far it was a maximum of 255 kilometers. BMW specifies 260 kilometers as a realistic everyday range, both for the 125 kW / 170 hp standard version and for the sports model i3s with 135 kW / 184 hp. The electric car, which was largely made of carbon, started in 2013 with a battery capacity of 22,6 kWh. The price remains the same despite the increased range, continues to start at just under 38.000 euros.
