It’s an understandable thought, what might my battery electric I3 be worth in 2, 3 or perhaps even 4 years time & will anyone even want to buy a zero-emission car? These are the sorts of concerns that will be a thing of the past if you decide to move forward with an i3 Lease because it just doesn’t matter how little the BMW might be worth at the end your Leasing deal, with Contract Hire simply hand back the keys & assuming all is as it should be you’ll never be worse off than the fixed priced agreement.
With thousands of quick charging DC stations, it really doesn’t take that long to recharge those batteries so if you are dead set on the very latest i3 Lease then enjoy cutting edge high-voltage battery technology & an extended range to power you all the way home or perhaps a longer business journey. The i3 has a lightweight construction, mostly made from carbon fibre that guarantees sporty handling & also makes those clever ‘coach style’ doors possible, passenger access to the folding rear seats is simply a breeze. Clients looking for an even faster, more dynamic i3 for Lease will be pleased to hear the ‘s’ has improved aerodynamics, sports suspension & increased performance from the fabulous BMW eDrive powertrain.

Electric vehicles are certainly making an impression in the market and the BMW i3 is undoubtedly a frontrunner. Realistically, the i3 can tackle more than 100 miles whilst in electric mode. It’s more expensive but there is an alternative that adds some range extension. A 2 cylinder petrol generator is on board in this version, helping to keep the batteries topped up for around another 75 miles. Essentially, you could run and run, as long as you take into account the refuelling stops needed.
The rear wheels operate in the same way, whichever version you prefer – they are powered by an electric motor. With the engine packing 160bhp, the i3 comfortably reaches its maximum speed of 90mph. Although clearly designed with the town centre in mind, this sort of speed is certainly enough to comfortably tackle short bursts on the motorway. Back in the city and the nimble movement of this EV really comes into its own.
Why does it feel so good to drive? Well, it’s quite simple – it still says BMW on the front and back! The manufacturer has done a great job of making sure there is plenty of drivability here, it responds well at the wheel and the small turning circle, helps give it that sense of control in tight spaces. If parking is usually a nightmare for you, the i3 certainly does its best to take some of the pressure out of owning that tight and elusive parking space in a busy street.
Once into the cabin and into the driver’s seat, it’s pretty comfortable with plenty of adjustments available not just to the seat but the driving wheel itself. Slap on the air conditioning or any of the other easy to use and reach controls and you are ready to experience the BMW i3.
