Gentle power: the single-gear transmission of the BMW i3 ensures optimal power transfer to the rear wheels. You can easily accelerate to 150 kph (95 mph) using the sensitive pedal. The speed reduces as soon as you lift your foot off the pedal.
The electric engine of the BMW i3 also has plenty to offer: 7.2 seconds is all it takes for its powerful torque to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph. The combination of a very low centre of gravity and ideal weight distribution ensures that you have a fascinating driving experience. But why not experience it for yourself!
