Electric, sustainable city car

Hire a BMW i3

We are committed to improving London's air quality and continue to drive change with the addition of even more electric vehicles, and aim to have an 80% all-electric fleet by 2025. Currently there are 130 electric BMW i3 cars in the London fleet. These are the BMW 120Ah model, which has a range of 160 miles meaning more time for driving with zero emissions.

The all-electric BMW i3 offers an entirely new driving experience. Thanks to the innovative eDrive, the BMW i3 is agile and has virtually no engine noise. As an electric car it's free from the Congestion Charge at all times. 

This compact 5 door car has an amazing sense of space inside plus a range of special features to assist you when driving, such as Driving Assistant Plus, City Gradual Braking and Park Distance Control. And the rear view camera makes parking the BMW i3 especially easy!

The single-gear transmission of the BMW i3 ensures optimal power transfer to the rear wheels. The regenerative braking system means  the car slows down as soon as you lift your foot off the accelerator.
