2018 BMW i3 and i3s
Date: September 3, 2017
The 2018 BMW i3 line expands to two vehicles, an updated version of the i3 that's been on the market for some time, and the new BMW i3s that's sportier. One key attribute of BMW is high performance sportiness. The i3 already gave a sporty performance, but it was only a matter of time for BMW to produce a sporty version of the i3.
The regular BMW i3 has a 125 kW/170 hp electric motor, a 0-60 miles/hr time of 7.3 seconds and its top speed is limited to 93 miles/hr. All those performance specs are decent, and certainly "enough" for most drivers. But, we're talking about BMW. It has a more powerful 135 kW/184 hp electric motor, a 0-60 miles/hr time of 6.9 seconds, and the top speed is limited to 99 miles/hr. The i3s has more than just power increases, its ride height is lowered, it has a wider track, different wheels, and more.
