Autotrader Tallies '5 Reasons to Buy' 2017 BMW i3


Are you seeking a vehicle that'll help you maximize your mileage on all your daily drives? Well, if so, we here at BMW of Grapevine think you may well find that in the form of our hatchback EV, the 2017 i3.


And what makes us say that?


Get the need-to know information from Autotrader commentator Jabari Jones; his appraisal of the i3 is as follows:

Hiding beneath the hood of the entry-level 60 Ah model, an electric motor holds court with a 22-kilowatt-hour battery. Available with rear-wheel drive only, the i3 is rated at a very respectable 170 horsepower.


That said, it's on the fuel economy front where the i3 really impresses. The 60 Ah, for example, is estimated to achieve 81 miles of all-electric range.


If you'd like to meet this extraordinary EV "in the metal," or wish to put one through its paces on the open road, we encourage you to pay us a visit at our Grapevine, TX location. Upon your stopover, we'll be sure to set you up with a test drive in the i3, or any other BMW model that's commanded your curiosity.
