BMW Introduces the 2018 BMW i3 and First Ever BMW i3s

The most awarded portfolio of vehicles in automotive history is about to get a shot of performance. BMW has introduced the upcoming 2018 BMW i3, and the first ever 2018 BMW i3s. Among premium compact vehicles, the BMW i3 has been the bestselling compact battery-electric vehicle since its debut in 2014, and Portland drivers can join the movement.

The new BMW i3 features a synchronous electric motor that boasts up to 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. By the way, that level of torque is available right from start, giving you a jolt of speed as soon as you press the acceleration. That means 0 to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds, and a 93 mph electronic top speed.

The first ever BMW i3s adds a sport element to an already impressive vehicle lineup. The BMW i3s boosts your power to 184 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque. What else sets it apart? The sports suspension and SPORT mode, providing an agile handling experience around every curve. All while going 0 to 60 mph in 6.8 seconds, up to a top speed of 100 mph.

BMW will officially introduce the 2018 BMW i3 and 2018 BMW i3s this month at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt, and we're excited for these two incredible electric models to hit our showroom in the future. For now, explore the current new BMW selection available at BMW Portland.
