THE DESIGN OF THE NEW BMW i3.

Balanced looks, inside and out.


The BMW i3 does not follow any trend; it's an expression of a self-aware lifestyle. Designed in a progressive form language and equipped with sustainable materials and functional details, it's a vehicle that will set trends.

Fashionable, all-around.

The exterior of the BMW i3 exudes agility. Dual-colour painted surfaces and short projecting edges are depictive of modern design. The characteristic stream flow of the windows – which gives them a single surface appearance – provides a spacious panoramic view.

From the outside in.

The unique and spacious interior of the BMW i3 is palpable through the coach doors. The open, inviting design makes entry and loading simple, comfortable and safe. The closed doors assume the protective function of the B-pillar.

Fascinating at first glance.

The BMW i3's standard U-shaped LED headlights flank the symbol of the brand: the kidney grille. Below, the bumper visually stretches out the front of the vehicle with large design turn signal lights and lends them an extremely powerful expressiveness.

Sporty rear.

The diffuser-like rear bumper has been increased by 40mm and enhances the width of the rear. The logo with BMW i blue highlights accentuate the characteristic BMW i black belt and once again emphasises the evident sportiness.

Lighter and more agile.

As part of BMW's intelligent lightweight construction, the carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) roof reduces the car's mass and shifts the centre of gravity lower. This leads to an increase in agility and dynamics when taking a bend, accelerating and braking.

Always see the road ahead.

The BMW i3 LED headlights and rear lights in the classic BMW U shape provide the best safety available. The rear lights curve from the back to the side to ensure visibility from multiple angles. The integrated design clusters together the rear fog lights, reversing lights and reflectors for a seamless look. Designed to illuminate the road better than ever, the state-of-the-art headlights measure available light to brighten the road evenly for better vision for hundreds of metres.

A new colour palette.

Now available in six colour variations, the new BMW i3 looks even more spectacular. Colour schemes such as the vibrant Melbourne Red and Imperial Blue are offset with Frozen Grey metallic highlights. Combined with the specially designed 19” and 20” light alloy wheels, as well as an elegant black rear belt, the new BMW i3 has a unique look that's different to any other vehicle on the road.
