Overview2015 BMW i3

Combining style, comfort, and handling in one convenient package, the 2015 BMW i3 is an electric vehicle worthy of the BMW logo. The BMW i3 comes standard with the BMW iDrive infotainment system, including a 6.5-inch display, HD Radio, satellite radio, Bluetooth, USB and navigation, with a Harman Kardon 12-speaker surround-sound system available. For 2015, BMW adds an optional two-cylinder gas engine to serve as a generator that recharges the vehicle while you drive and thereby doubles its range on a single charge. If you're searching for an EV(Electric Vehicle) that looks good and is fun to drive, look no further than the 2015 BMW i3. U.S. News ranks the 2015 BMW i3 the No. 4 luxury hybrid car of that year.

NOTEWORTHY FEATURES

Fun to Drive

The 2015 i3 adds to an already-impressive line a new standard DC fast-charging port that was made only optional in the 2014 model. Satellite radio and heated seats also come standard in the 2015 model. The i3's electric motor has excellent torque, so the vehicle has quick acceleration for an EV, able to go from zero to 60 mph in seven seconds. With rear-wheel drive, the vehicle handles a lot better than many of its front-wheel drive competitors. With an aggressive regenerative-braking system, the vehicle brakes hard and fast, too.

Ride in Style

The interior of the i3 may remind you of a science fiction movie, utilitarian in its practical functionality yet cutting-edge in its technology and design. BMW then balances this out further with naturalesque materials. The exterior is uniquely stylish, unlike any other vehicle you've seen, with a plastic body reinforced in carbon fiber and a lightweight aluminum battery housing.

Cutting-Edge Tech

The BMW i3 has two large wide-screen touch screens. They're more than just nice to look at. One touch screen sits behind the steering wheel and displays your speed. The other floats over the center of the dashboard and offers a leading-edge rearview camera and top-notch navigation.

ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS

Back Seat Struggle

The rear seat is a bit tricky to enter and exit, thanks to futuristic rear-hinged doors that open outward and a high step into the vehicle.

Pocketbook Crunch

The 2015 BMW i3 is usually on the higher end of purchase prices in its class. What's more, the vehicle doesn't get as extensive a range on a single charge as some of its rivals, consuming more in electricity costs (not to mention your time) for the more frequent charge-ups required. That said, it certainly offers a great deal in return for that sticker shock, including in the areas of efficiency and luxury.

Cargo Stay

One area where the interior of the 2015 i3 falls short is in its cargo space, which is minimal. The vehicle gives you 36.9 cubic feet if you fold down the rear seats and 11.8 cubic feet if you leave them up.
