Range, charging & efficiency of the new BMW i3.

DRIVE FURTHER, FASTER. WITH PLEASURE AND ZERO EMISSIONS.Range, charging & efficiency of the new BMW i3.

The BMW i3 has everything you need to combat the challenges of modern mobility – and to outmatch them in silence. It charges 80 percent of its high-voltage battery at a quick-charging station in about 45 minutes. Its intelligent energy management makes it flexible and highly efficient, both in city traffic and on longer trips.

Getting ahead has never been so easy: the BMW i3 can cover 335 kilometres in a day with its extended range. The new high-performance battery now supplies the electric engine with even more energy – and you get even more electric driving pleasure.


Never before was charging this simple: The intelligent charging options of the BMW i3 allow flexibility and convenience at the highest level. With digital services, you can plan the charging process more clearly than ever before – regardless of whether you're at home or out and about.

  • Home charging

    With the BMW i Wallbox, the BMW i Wallbox Plus and the BMW i Wallbox Connect you can charge your BMW i3 at home safely, quickly and comfortably. In about three hours the battery will be charged up to 80% of its capacity. This is possible due to the three-phase charging power of the new BMW i Wallbox of up to 11 kW* for the BMW i3. With the BMW i installation service, the installation of your BMW i Wallbox will be carried out by qualified experts.

    For even more sustainability, you have the option to use green energy and solar power you have generated yourself.

    * The Wallbox has a charging capacity of up to 22 kW.

  • Public charging

    There are many reasons for you to be out and about with your BMW i3 – and just as many opportunities to charge it while you are. First, the practicalities: With the BMW i3, you can use public charging stations with either alternating current (AC) or with direct current (DC). This will make you more flexible and will allow you to charge the vehicle as quickly as possible. This is because at a public DC charging station, the energy is transferred directly into the high-voltage storage in the vehicle battery at a constant current flow rate. This allows the BMW i3 to be charged up to 80% in ca. 45 minutes. Alternatively, you can also charge your BMW i3 at an AC charging station up to 80% in about three hours. Thus, public AC charging stations are particularly well-suited during long periods of the vehicle being parked, for example during a shopping tour.


Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.


    Power consumption and CO2 emissions for the BMW i3 (2):
    Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 0
    CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 0
    Power consumption in kWh/100 km: 14.0-14.2
    Electric range in km (combined): 359
    Customer-oriented electric range in km: up to 335

    values based on NEDC test cycle

    The driving range depends on a variety of factors, especially: personal driving behaviour, selected route, weather conditions, usage of heating/cooling and preconditioning.

    The values of fuel consumptions, CO2 emissions and energy consumptions shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model.

    The values of the vehicles labeled with (2), are preliminary.

    The values of the vehicles are already based on the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to ensure the comparison between the vehicles. [With respect to these vehicles, for vehicle related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2-emissions the CO2 values may differ to the values stated here.]

    The CO2 efficiency specifications are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the European Regulation in its current version applicable. The values shown are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle for the classification.
