1. Broad range for your daily commute and road trips.
The average work commute is 25.6 miles round-trip, according to the Federal Highway Administration1. That means that in a BMW i3, you can take the long road home from work and maybe do some shopping along the way. You could even drive to one of your favorite weekend getaways and recharge overnight or take a day trip to a local destination and back on a single charge. With its higher-capacity batteries fully chargeable in 6.5 hours, the BMW i3 is your perfect companion for daily commutes and road trips.
2. Charging options that are simple and convenient.
While many EV owners charge at home so they wake up every morning with a full charge, there are more than 22,000 charging stations in the U.S., with plans for even more. That means you can often charge your BMW i3 where you park while grabbing lunch or grocery shopping – in a city lot or at work, and at many hotels, restaurants and shopping malls.
3. Ultimate Driving Machine performance combined with life-changing benefits.
Enjoying emissions-free mobility doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice performance. The i3 is, after all, a BMW, and with its 170-hp electric motor, 181-hp for the i3s, these models set the benchmark for sporty performance among premium compact electric vehicles. And when you add the fact that you’ll never have to change the oil or fill up with gas, and it’s eligible for HOV lane access, the benefits of driving a BMW i3 can be life-changing.
4. Easy on your wallet.
The BMW i3 is eligible for a federal tax credit of up to $7,500.
Actual savings from the federal government depend on your tax situation. We recommend consulting a tax professional to validate credit availability and eligibility. While BMW of North America, LLC, does its best to keep this information up-to-date, it cannot guarantee the current accuracy or your eligibility. In addition, owners are eligible for many other statewide and local incentives.
Please check energy.gov* for information on eligibility and availability of incentives in your city or community.
