BMW i is a comprehensive and ground-breaking concept for sustainable mobility. It represents visionary electric vehicles and mobility services, inspiring design and a new understanding of premium that is strongly defined by sustainability. This claim is incorporated in the all-electric BMW i3 and BMW i3s, two locally emission-free vehicles that are sustainably designed throughout as well as the BMW i8 Coupé and the BMW i8 Roadster as pioneering sports vehicles.

Electric and electrifying: every detail, every characteristic, everything in the BMW i3 with eDrive is designed to complement vibrant city life. Powered by its fully emission-free electric motor, the BMW i3 guarantees urbane mobility where a city car needs it most: in city centres with restrictions already in place for certain vehicles. From an ecological perspective, the BMW i3 impresses with its breath-taking acceleration, from low speed or even from standstill – and with a high-voltage battery (lithium-ion high-voltage battery) with an everyday range of up to 260 km, it covers all destinations even in the catchment area of a metropolis. And also allows convenient overland trips without concern about the range.

The most progressive sports car: more efficient – through intelligent lightweight construction with carbon and an aerodynamic design. More sustainable – with recyclable materials in the interior. Without forfeiting dynamics and its sporty appearance. No compromises, but rather the optimal combination of driving pleasure and responsibility. The BMW i8, available as a Roadster or Coupé, is a plug-in hybrid that brings together the advantages of electromobility and innovative engine technology. The result is an extraordinarily dynamic driving experience – with extremely low consumption and CO2 emissions.
