BMW i.

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. And it thrills with its innovative vehicles: the all-electric BMW i3, a locally emission-free car for city driving that is sustainably designed throughout, and the BMW i8 Roadster and i8 Coupé as the most progressive sports car.

In BMW i we have called everything that we previously knew about mobility into question. And fully revisited the “concept vehicle”. With new production sites and manufacturing processes. With a powerful and emission-free electric drive. With a visionary, sustainable design. The result is the BMW i3 and the BMW i8 – a modern mobility concept that adapts to individual requirements.

BMW LifeDrive is the first vehicle architecture designed especially for electric mobility. All the chassis and drive components as well as the battery are accommodated absolutely securely in the drive module. Consequently, the life module is fully available as a usable living space. For the first time, a passenger compartment has been manufactured from high-strength carbon in a production vehicle. Carbon fibres are ten times finer than human hairs. They are extremely robust but weigh only half as much as steel. The means greater safety, less weight and more agility on the road.

Instead of integrating just one electric drivetrain into an already existing model, the entire BMW i vehicle concept has been designed especially for electric mobility. This not only affects the aerodynamic vehicle design, but also the materials that are used. Wherever possible, we have employed sustainable or recycle materials.

Time for new values: 95 % of the materials incorporated into a BMW i3 can be recycled. Surplus carbon fibres, for example, can be fed back into the production process or recycled in other areas. The battery modules can also be recycled as interim storage for solar or wind energy plants.

    The values of fuel consumptions, CO2 emissions and energy consumptions shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model.

    The values of the vehicles labeled with (²), are preliminary.

    The values of the vehicles labeled with (³), are already based on the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to ensure the comparison between the vehicles. [With respect to these vehicles, for vehicle related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2-emissions the CO2 values may differ to the values stated here.]

    The CO2 efficiency specifications are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the European Regulation in its current version applicable. The values shown are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle for the classification.

    For further information about the official fuel consumption and the specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and at
