The BMW i3 is BMW’s first 100%-electric car built electric from the ground up. It is part of BMW’s “born electric” i series. Its price puts it somewhat in the middle of the Nissan Leaf and the Tesla Model S. Despite looking a bit bulky, the BMW i3 is the lightest electric car on the market, thanks to its carbon fiber body. It’s a smooth & sweet drive. Compared to BMW’s overall sales, the i3 is selling very well, making it clear that BMW is one of the auto-manufacturing pioneers in the electric vehicle space. Read my first BMW i3 review here, and/or my second review & comparison with the LEAF & Volt here, and/or my comparison with the Tesla Model S here.

BMW i3 User Reviews

  1. I love the i3, as you’ve likely noticed by now. It is a lot of fun to accelerate in, has a great seating position (in the front — is a bit tight in the back), has a wonderfully open view out the windows, and is on the cutting edge with interior and exterior materials. Loading and unloading kids also seems quite easy compared to other cars. Navigation tech isn’t that exciting, unfortunately, and space in the back & trunk is a bit lacking. But man, it is so torquey and the handling is so much fun! I give it a rare 5 stars.
