BMW Unveils Electric Performance in the 2018 BMW i3 and First Ever BMW i3s

How should the performance of the upcoming 2018 BMW i3 and first ever BMW i3s be described? Electric. BMW is set to unveil both vehicles this month, and continues to prove that zero emissions translates to award winning performance on the Seattle roads.

The 2018 BMW i3 isn't your ordinary electric vehicle. With up to 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, it can go from 0 to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds, and cruise up to 93 mph. And all that torque? It springs into action from the moment you press the accelerator, giving you a jolt of electrically powered speed.

The BMW i3s debuts a sportier edge to the i3, thanks to sport suspension and the new SPORT mode, available via the Driving Dynamics Control switch. You'll have 184 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque to play with, as the i3s goes from 0 to 60 mph in 6.8 seconds, with a top speed of 100 mph. That combination of sport agility and electric power makes for a thrilling driving experience.

The 2018 BMW i3 and 2018 BMW i3s will make their first appearance later this month in Frankfurt as part of the International Motor Show. And while we're eager for them to arrive in our showroom, we offer a wide selection of new BMW vehicles available right now. Visit BMW Seattle for a test drive today!
