Finally the much awaited BMW i3 made its synchronized first appearance in London, Beijing and New York. The i3 will be first ever 100% electric car designed and manufactured by BMW, it will have all the characteristics of a stock BMW, including absolute driving satisfaction.  Now the i3 has set an all new platform for maintainable maneuverability in all junctures of growth and invention. The i3 will hit Germany and other European countries within November of 2013, and other car bazaars like, China, Japan, USA and many more will witness the car in the mid 2014s.

The i3 can go on for about a 130 to 160 kilometers in one charge, and convincingly that is quite adequate. The average human travels not more than 64 kilometers per day, regardless of which country it is. If not enough for some, BMW is also offering something called a ‘range-extender’, this helps the lithium-ion battery to maintain the charge at an invariable plane enroute, just before the charge drops below the specified assessment. This task is taken care of by a 2 canister petrol block, with 34 HP (horse power), this engine is accumulated adjoining the electric locomotive, which is right on top of of the rear axle. This ‘range-extender’ will increase the car’s range of up to 300 kilometers.

The i3s running cost is impressively low, when a term of 3 years has been calculated, it is, give or take 40% lower than maintaining an exceedingly inexpensive 320dA that currently runs in Germany. It may be even lower in other countries, depending upon the tax for electric cars. The car’s curb weight is only 1,195 kilos, lighter than many hatchbacks.

BMW manufactures these cars with the help of wind power, the facility uses less than 50% of the standard electricity supply and an astounding 70% less water is used when compared with other BMW car productions. BMW has also predicted that the i3 may exceed the 150,000 car margin within the year 2013.
