Driving Range

1. Broad range for your daily commute and road trips.

The average work commute is 25.6 miles round-trip, according to the Federal Highway Administration1. That means that in a BMW i3, you can take the long road home from work and maybe do some shopping along the way. You could even drive to one of your favorite weekend getaways and recharge overnight or take a day trip to a local destination and back on a single charge. With its higher-capacity batteries fully chargeable in 6.5 hours2, the 2019 BMW i3 is your perfect companion for daily commutes and road trips.

CHARGING TIMES

2. Charging options that are simple and convenient.

While many EV owners charge at home so they wake up every morning with a full charge, there are more than 22,000 charging stations in the U.S.1, with plans for even more. That means you can often charge your BMW i3 where you park while grabbing lunch or grocery shopping – in a city lot or at work, and at many hotels, restaurants and shopping malls.

Note: Time is for 2019 BMW i3 with 42 kWh battery. Charge times are approximate. Range added per hour is from Energy.gov. A colder ambient temperature can make it take slightly longer to charge, particularly when using a rapid charger. Colder temperatures also mean vehicles are less efficient, so less miles are added per time charging.

 

Performance

3. Ultimate Driving Machine performance combined with life-changing benefits.

Enjoying emissions-free mobility doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice performance. The i3 is, after all, a BMW, and with its 170-hp electric motor, 181-hp for the i3s, these models set the benchmark for sporty performance among premium compact electric vehicles. And when you add the fact that you’ll never have to change the oil or fill up with gas, and it’s eligible for HOV lane access, the benefits of driving a BMW i3 can be life-changing.

EV INCENTIVES

4. Easy on your wallet.

The BMW i3 is eligible for a federal tax credit of up to $7,500.

Actual savings from the federal government depend on your tax situation. We recommend consulting a tax professional to validate credit availability and eligibility. While BMW of North America, LLC does its best to keep this information up-to-date, it cannot guarantee the current accuracy or your eligibility. In addition, owners are eligible for many other statewide and local incentives.

Please check energy.gov* for information on eligibility and availability of incentives in your city or community.

The average U.S. resident drives 13,476 miles per year and spends about $1,262 on gasoline. In comparison, the cost of electricity to power the BMW i3 is less than half that. Over the six-year average length of car ownership, that’s about $4,446 in gasoline savings.


We’ve assumed a fuel economy of 30 mpg for a comparable gasoline powered sedan. For example, the 2018 BMW 3 Series and $2.81 per gallon average for all grades of gasoline 13,476 miles / 30 miles/gallon = 449 gallons/year. 449 gallons * $2.81/gallon = $1,262 for gasoline per year or $7,572 for gasoline in six years.


We’ve assumed a combined electricity consumption of 30 kwH per 100 miles for the BMW i3 and the 2018 U.S. average of $0.1289 per kwH for electricity www.eia.gov: 13,476 miles / 100 * 30 kwH = 4,043 kwH/year. 4,043 kwH * $0.1289/kwH = $521 for electricity per year or $3,126 for electricity in six years.
