Ever since it was first introduced in 2013, the BMW i3 has been considered one of the most interesting and unique electric vehicles, thanks primarily to its unorthodox exterior design and use of sophisticated technology. The 2020 model is part of the first generation that started with the 2014 model year, with only a few slight changes over previous models, mostly in terms of range and powertrain options. The BMW i3 is most suitable for city driving, since it's quite practical and easily maneuverable due to its size and shape. It's a perfect choice for your daily commute as well as running errands around town.

One of the most distinguishing things about the BMW i3 is its design. It boasts an eye-catching futuristic look that makes it stand out from the crowd wherever it goes. It's tall and narrow, featuring unusual lines along the sides and the rear end that give the car its quirky, playful looks. If you're looking for a with a distinctive, bold design that is sure to turn a lot of heads, then the BMW i3 is one of the best choices you could make.
When it comes to technology, the BMW i3 leaves little to be desired. It is packed with features that make every ride more comfortable, enjoyable and entertaining. It comes standard with automatic climate control, start/stop button, an on-board computer with Check Control that provides you with the most essential information about the operational status of various vehicle systems while driving—as well as driver-assist features such as acoustic pedestrian detection, impact sensor, and park distance control.
Another factor that sets the BMW i3 apart is the use of innovative technologies and materials. For starters, its body is largely made of lightweight carbon fiber. This weight-saving structure is designed to increase range and is complemented by an aluminum Drive Module that helps provide a lower center of gravity to makes it more easily maneuverable. Inside you also get the iDrive infotainment system with a 6.5-inch screen and Apple CarPlay® compatibility.
The BMW i3's cabin offers sufficient room for a comfortable ride for all passengers. Head and legroom both in the front and the back is satisfactory and even tall adults won't feel cramped thanks to the rear-hinged back doors, as well as the fact that there is no B-pillar. The entire cabin feels that much more spacious and is very easy to access from all sides. This makes it easier to put bags and other items in the back, as well. What's more, you can easily fold the rear seats down by pulling a strap, which opens up enough space to fit several smaller suitcases, a nice amount of groceries and even some sporting equipment.
While electric cars are usually associated with driving around town, the BMW i3 is suited for longer trips as well. The estimated 153-mile range of the base version is more than enough for a road trip on one charge.
