The BMW i3 features an electric powertrain with rear-wheel drive, a single-speed transmission, an under-floor lithium-ion battery, and an optional gasoline engine to extend its range. The 2011 prototype featured a 22 kWh lithium-ion battery with a range of 130-160 km and could be fully charged in about four hours with a 240-volt charger. The three-door hatchback is powered by an electric motor developed by BMW, as is the five-door i3 electric sedan and is expected to weigh approximately 2,700 kg. An optional long-range twin-cylinder engine solved the mileage problem while an upgraded battery pack has improved electronics, including new software maps for the battery and engine cooling system. The 94 Ah battery pack can be used in either the all-electric i3 or the extended-range i3. According to BMW, more than 7,000 BMW i3 cars with the more powerful battery were ordered as of August 10, 2016, and a total of 2,358 BMW i3 cars were delivered worldwide in July 2016, up 33.7% year-on-year. Sales also increased in the United States, with 1,479 BMW i3 models sold in July 2016, up 58.2% compared to July 2015 and 143.3% compared to June 2016. In 2017, BMW announced that it would add the i3 to its model range in 2018. As with the standard BMW i3, you can choose from a variety of interior finishes for the i3s.
Owners of the BMW i3 have reported several pressing issues. A notable concern for the 2016 Rex model revolves around a distinct noise from the left rear wheel when the air conditioning is on, suspected to be a malfunctioning compressor that could disperse metal swarf throughout the refrigeration loop, escalating repair costs. While some dealerships dismissed this as normal, others highlighted the potential for metal particles to harm other parts and emphasized the dual role of the compressor in battery cooling. In another vein, the BEV model with Active cruise control often experienced disruptions, especially during highway use, with triggers ranging from adverse weather, direct sunlight, to even calibration phases post-delivery. Its Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), particularly in the 2019 model, displayed a tendency to disengage unexpectedly, with the system's outdated grayscale camera being easily misled by various conditions like sunlight or road anomalies. Additionally, ACC malfunctioning surfaced in other models, with potential causes identified as obstructions, loose connections, or miscommunication between steering controls and the vehicle system. Another user experienced ACC issues believed to arise from a foggy windshield, hinting at the need for systems like KAFAS to ensure clarity. All these concerns underscore the vehicle's complexities and the importance of timely interventions and knowledge of system limitations.
