*10,000 BMW i3 vehicles on the UK roads as of March 2018.

**Figures are for comparison purposes and may not reflect real life driving results which depend on a number of factors including the starting charge of the battery, accessories fitted (post registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load. They were obtained after the battery had been fully charged. The BMW i3 is a battery electric vehicle requiring mains electricity for charging. The electric range was determined according to a new test (WLTP). Only compare fuel consumption, CO2 and electric range figures with other cars tested to the same technical procedure.

***This is an indicative estimation of the costs for electricity for a BMW i3 battery electric vehicle compared to the fuel costs for another vehicle. Calculation based on an annual mileage of 10,000 miles per year comparing a petrol fuelled car running at 40 mpg at a cost per litre of £1.30 to an annual electricity cost of £135 to charge a BMW i3. The electricity consumption of the i3 is calculated on the basis of the figures obtained in the standardised WLTP test cycle. These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. The actual consumption depends on a variety of factors, especially: wheel and tyre sizes selected, personal driving behaviour, selected route, weather conditions, usage of heating/cooling and preconditioning. Electricity and fuel costs are subject to regional variations and change in the future; they account for only a part of the total costs of ownership for a vehicle. Default figures for electricity and fuel prices per unit are the average fuel figures published by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy in March each year.

This calculation is taking into account the following: electricity cost per KW hour is 16.6p, fuel type is petrol, cost of petrol per litre is £1.30, the MPG of the combustion engine car is 40 and that this is compared over a 10,000 mile range.

SAVINGS EVERY MILE.

The annual electricity cost of charging a BMW i3 is just £135, compared to a fuel cost of £1,477 for a comparable petrol car, so you could save up to £1,342* per year.

ELECTRIC PERFORMANCE.

In the BMW i3 full torque from the electric motor is instantly available from a standing start, and keeps coming without delay; unlike a traditional engine which accelerates incrementally with the gears.

BMW i3 charging

FLEXIBLE CHARGING.

You can recharge your BMW i3 at home or at work with the BMW i Wallbox, and on the go with a huge UK network of over 26,000 public charging stations.

THE BOTTOM LINE.

THE BOTTOM LINE.

On average, electricity only costs 16.6p per KW hour, compared to petrol which costs £1.30 per litre, so with a BMW i3 you save every time you charge up*. The BMW i3 has officially been given a Category 1 rating, so you can receive a £3,500 government grant towards the cost of purchasing one. Plus, if you’re considering the BMW i3 for your business, it’s good to know it will have a BIK tax rate of 0% for 2020.
