2017 BMW I3 Overview:
The 2017 model year is shaping up to be a good one, with many electric models receiving significant upgrades in battery capacity and the 2017 BMW i3 will be one of them. Not much has changed when looking back at the two preceding model years, but the biggest change is a new 94 Ah battery pack that will provide a nice jump in the car’s cruising range. 

Here’s what drivers can look forward to in the new 2017 BMW i3. 

What’s new for 2017

One of the biggest criticisms launched at electric cars is aimed at battery capacity. How many miles is one charge good for? Thankfully, BMW engineers were able to optimize the 2017 BMW i3’s battery by re-engineering its battery cells. They were able to make cells smaller but have higher energy density, effectively meaning they could put more cells within the same amount of space. 

The result is a 33.0-kWh capacity battery that matches the same dimensions as the older 22.0-kWh. It’s heavier, bringing the car’s total weight up to 2961 pounds, and technically less energy efficient. But the car can now travel a distance of up to 186 miles on a charge, though BMW admits drivers are more likely to see an average of 114 miles in real-world driving scenarios. 

Also new for the 2017 BMW i3 are new 19-inch wheels and a new Protonic Blue paint option. Inside the car are a new Deka World interior theme and real-time traffic information presented to the driver. The new trim replaces the Mega World version and features cloth made from recycled materials. 

Trim and options

The i3 is BMW’s smallest compact vehicle. It’s a five-door hatchback that comes in four trims: Deka World, Mega World, Giga World and Tera World. The Deka World trim is now the base trim and comes standard with plenty of great features like live traffic data and an integrated universal garage-door opener. Each trim features a themed interior design while the Giga and Tera World trims add in things such as the smoker package. 

There are also three variants of the i3: a 60 Ah version, the standard 94 Ah option and a Range Extender option, which features the 33kWh battery and 2-cylinder gasoline engine hidden away under the cargo floor. 

Performance

The 2017 BMW i3 is packing a 170-hp electric motor that puts out 184 lb-ft of torque, which makes a fairly quick car considering its electric nature. BMW says it can reach 60 mph in about 7.1 seconds, but does that make it fun to drive? Well, not exactly. The car is a little rough around the edges when it comes to handling and the steering - not grippy like you would expect from a BMW. But if you’re just looking to go from point A to point B then it’s fine. 

Fuel economy

BMW says drivers should be able to reach 114 miles on a single charge with the new 94 Ah version. The REx version extends that range another 93 miles. Charging the battery to full takes less than 4.5 hours, though the built-in 50 kW DC faster charger can get it up to 80 percent in just about 40 minutes.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a BMW I3:

Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:

  • Example: Base BMW I3 invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
  • What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.

Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)

Note: All BMW I3 Prices above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.

A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
