The BMW i3, previously Mega City Vehicle (MCV), is a 5-door sedan urban electric car developed by BMW. The i3 is part of BMW’s “Project i” and is being launched as a new brand, BMW i.
The i3 is BMW’s first zero emissions mass-produced vehicle due to its electric powertrain, and BMW is the first company to launch a volume production vehicle on the market featuring carbon-fiber reinforced plastic to improve the vehicle’s energy consumption.
Under the New European Driving Cycle the official range is 80 to 100 miles, and up to 120 mi in the most efficient driving mode.
The 2015 BMW i3 now comes standard with DC fast-charging capability, heated front seats, and satellite radio.
