The motor smoothly gives the kind of performance that drivers expect from a BMW thanks to a single-speed automatic transmission, with continuous power delivery that builds up the car’s speed. The new BMW i3 accelerates from 0 – 60 mph in 7.2 seconds with an electronic top speed of 93 mph. A battery upgrade for 2019 has given the BMW i3 longer legs, and it now has a real-world range of around 160 miles. A slow charge takes 6 hours(7kW) a fast charge takes 3 hours(11kW, 0-80%) and finally a rapid charge takes 30 minutes(50kW, 20-80%).
