BMW i3 review

NGC verdict 27.03.2015

BMW has certainly thought outside the box designing the i3 and the result is a desirable city car that’s a little bit special. The all-electric i3 handles well around town and is packed full of technology, all in a boldly styled, almost futuristic package. However, all this comes at a price with the i3 starting at £25,980 (including plug-in-car grant).

The lack of a fifth seat in the rear might put some people off and while the carriage doors look good, they’re somewhat impractical for day-to-day use. That said, if you’re looking for something a little bit different and futuristic, packed full of technology and from a well-known manufacturer the i3 could be for you.
