Have you considered hiring the BMW i3? How about the Sportier more dynamic i3s!

The BMW i3 is arguably the most iconic Electric vehicle on the road, but certainly unmistakable. BMW have taken this already fantastic car, and given it the “Ultimate Driving Machine” treatment, improving the performance and handling. The i3s has an additional 13bhp (181bhp) and 15lb ft (199lb ft) over the conventional i3, although the battery remains the same. The i3s sits 10mm lower than a regular i3, and has a 40mm wider track, with larger wheels and tyres, improving the handling significantly. Underneath the striking exterior lies a new approach to driving, the lightweight construction of BMW’s intelligent Life-module. Made entirely of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) which is thinner than hair and stronger than steel.

THE TECHNOLOGY

RANGE EXTENDER

The two-cylinder petrol engine drives a generator for the production of electricity, extending the vehicle’s range by up to 93 miles. The Range Extender is automatically activated whenever the battery’s charging status is low, ensuring that the charge level of the lithium-ion high-voltage battery is held constant, but can also be forced into use, preserving the electric range held in the battery.

ONE PEDAL DRIVING

A strange concept, but thanks to the i3s’ regenerative braking system, you can accelerate and decelerate with a single, seamless movement. Releasing the accelerator causes the car to slow, allowing you to anticipate traffic early, saving wear on the brake pads.

CONNECTIVITY

The BMW Connected App places key vehicle features in your hands. Using a compatible IOS or Android mobile, you can send your destination details to the on-board sat nav, preheat or cool the cabin, check remaining range or even make sure the doors and windows are locked.

Over 125 years of combined experience in the car hire industry, there isn’t much we haven’t seen.

KEY FEATURES

The BMW i3s key features include:

DEVELOPMENT

The entire vehicle concept was developed from the ground up with electric mobility in mind. By reducing air resistance, the vehicle’s innovative aerodynamic design also reduces energy consumption. The use of renewable and recycled materials instead of conventional synthetic ones helps to protect the environment.

PRODUCTION

The carbon fibres are produced completely with hydro-electric energy. In Leipzig, BMW manufacture the new i3 and i3s using only electricity generated from wind power. The energy needed for their production is half of that required for other BMW models.

RECYCLING

The new BMW i3 and BMW i3s are up to 95% recyclable. The battery modules can, for example, be reused as solar energy accumulators. The excess carbon fibre is partially recycled for use in the production process.

EMISSIONS

The i3s is a Zero emission vehicle, with the i3s REx Ultra Low Emission. While driving the i3s REx only 14g/km of CO2 is produced, meaning both versions are congestion zone exempt . ECO PRO mode increases range and reduces power consumption even further.
