BORN ELECTRIC.

The BMW i3.

The BMW i3 represents an exciting and innovative proposition for the fleet marketplace. With fuel prices continuing to rise and tighter emission targets being set by the Government, running a fleet in today’s market is more challenging than ever.
The BMW i3 meets the requirement for an ultra-low emission vehicle to sit alongside traditional combustion engines on company car fleets. Not only will this have a positive impact on the environment, but it will also financially benefit both companies and company car drivers.

The car of tomorrow.

The BMW i3 defines the car of tomorrow. But redefining mobility means thinking far beyond environmentally conscious and agile driving. Its innovative eDrive drivetrain was inspired and informed by BMW EfficientDynamics technology.
The culmination of this technology means the BMW i3 more than covers the typical driving demands for commuting. The high-voltage lithium ion battery, combined with a dynamic electric motor and intelligent energy management offers an impressive range of 80-100 miles. For longer journeys, the BMW i3 with range extender, a small combustion engine that provides charge to the battery, increases the range to 150-186 miles on one tank of fuel.
Company car drivers will also benefit as the BMW i3 is totally emission free with 0g/km CO2, meaning 0% BIK payable, whilst still achieving 0-62mph in 7.2 seconds. In addition the BMW i3 is exempt from Road Fund License as well as zero congestion charge.
Taking all this into account, with annual ownership costs of as little as £140 the BMW i3 can save individual corporate customers over £5000 on a 3 year term in comparison to an efficient petrol or diesel engine.
