Even after many years of all-electric driving, customers are still fascinated by the spontaneous power and torque of the electric motor and the one-pedal feeling with which their vehicle decelerates by means of recuperation – not to mention the incredible range.
Customers who had their BMW i3 delivered within the first year of its original launch have since subjected both the vehicle and its original battery to a real-world endurance test. They have used sustainable mobility not only for daily commuting between home and the workplace, but also regularly for longer distances and even holiday trips. And they emphasize above all the reliability, durability and the practicable range of the BMW i3, whether in the heat of South Africa or in the cool north of Sweden.
What the BMW Group has believed since launch and now proven is that the decrease in range over time is marginal, and to date - not one BMW i3 high-voltage battery has had to be replaced due to premature ageing.
