Unique - Eye Catching

This is a remarkable vehicle from design, style, performance and cost effectiveness. The drive and handling are impressive and quality has been excellent. Also has excellent features and that make it fun to drive.


CPO i3 is great deal

Top line package-CPO much less than new price. Leather interior and tech packages much nicer than other similar EVs.No AM radio or outside temp-odd. Seats 4, smaller size easier to park. One pedal driving feature is addictive.


You gotta drive it to believe it.

Looks small outside but roomy inside. Built from cutting edge materials with BMW quality and feel. A surprisingly addictive drive that?s as fast as a muscle car off the line and with no gear changes it just keeps pushing my smile wider. Fantastic.


Fastest off the line, instant acceleration.

Thus is a great car. If 80 miles a day is all you need, no problem! Takes about 15 hours to charge on 120 volts. I got a 240 volt charger on Amazon. Charges fully in 5 hours.


L.O.V.E. it.

I was smitten by BMW's i3 and i8 ever since I saw the original concepts since 2009. Then I saw i3 in person at the LA auto show in 2011. I'm ultra happy that I own and drive one now. It's gorgeous inside and out, with thoughtful design details and engineering out of this world. The air conditioning system alone is amazing. Accelleration is rocket fast. Small on the outside, feels ENORMOUS on the inside. Plenty comfortable. The only 2 complaints are the range is too short, and it's a bit wabbly/bouncy on the road, I'd prefer stiffer, sportier suspension. The ride is great on a smooth road however.


Best used car deal

I love this car. I have been looking to replace my Toyota Highlander and have test drove many cars. I decided on the I3 because it is such a unique driving experience. After rebates this car was very inexpensive and has all of the latest technology.


I love my BMW i3

I love this car. I was excited to get it and go electric but this has exceeded my wildest expectations. It is so fun to drive my wife now borrows my car all the time. It's cutting edge as far as technology goes, it really is a smart car. It gets exactly what is claims on the mileage per charge and it's nice to have the range extender as a backup.


Love this smart, sporty BMW EV

Wonderful build quality, well thought out design from top to bottom, classically sporty BMW styling, and, oh yes, *quick* off the line. My previous car was a BMW 328i, so I have a solid basis for evaluating this car not only as an EV (both my brother and ex-wife drive Nissan Leafs) but as a BMW - wonderful. Thrilled. Will never willingly drive a petrol-powered ICE car again.


A game changer

Ground up electric design with carbon fiber. Light weight, smart tech and daring styling you love or not. Fast and nimble handling. Windy days and a light car require attention though. Otherwise a great car.


BMW i3

If you can live with range anxiety this is a wonderful automobile. Paired with solar the future looks bright. The odd looks grow on you. The Giga interior is high tech yet warm and a pleasure to spend time in. Navigation and entertainment package could use some tips from Apple but easy enough to use.
