BMW i3 Doubles it’s original EV range with 120Ah configuration

By November 30, 2018News

BMW Group Australia has continued its commitment to EVs with confirmed specifications and pricing for the new BMW i3 in 120Ah configuration.

“BMW has once again demonstrated its technical capability in the EV space with the latest BMW i3 120Ah,” said BMW Group Australia CEO, Vikram Pawah.

“Effectively doubling the real-world driving range from the i3’s 2013 global introduction, the newest addition to our BMW i stable remains a trailblazer.

“Beyond that, the constant evolution of materials and specification, as well as the i3s sports- focused variant, makes the car more relevant than ever,” he said.

At the heart of the newest BMW i3 is the latest in EV battery technology. Where the original BMW i3 housed a 60Ah lithium-ion battery pack, the 2019-specification i3 and i3s variants boast a 120Ah system.

While the storage capacity of the 42kWh battery has doubled, its size remains unchanged, thus maximising cabin space. The system enables the latest i3 and i3s to travel up to 260km in real-world driving, without needing to be charged.

Other standard technology highlights include the Navigation System Professional with a 10.25-inch colour display, ConnectedDrive suite with Concierge Services, as well as safety features including Driving Assistant Plus and the Parking Assistant Package with rear-view camera.

The innovative matrix technology in the anti-dazzle High Beam and built-in cornering light function offer optimum illumination to improve visibility and safety for night time driving.

A brand new metallic exterior paint colour in ‘Jucaro Beige’ with Frozen Grey highlights will be available on the BMW i3 and i3s models as an option for customers to further individualise their car.
