BMW i3 now a bet­ter sport

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

BMW has re­vealed a sporty ad­di­tion to its i3 elec­tric car range, with a more driver-fo­cused i3s vari­ant set to join the lo­cal line-up as part of a wider mid-life up­date. Boast­ing a power boost of 10kw/20nm over the stan­dard i3 for to­tal out­puts of 135kw/270nm, the i3s shares the same bat­tery tech as its ex­ist­ing sib­lings, with the ex­tra grunt lib­er­ated through a re­designed and op­ti­mised driv­e­train and mo­tor con­troller. Sports sus­pen­sion, a 40mm wider track, wider 20-inch wheels and tyres, and ex­te­rior styling tweaks also fea­ture.
