BMW i3 (94 AH)

Daily Express - - TOTAL EV -

PRICE: from £27,830 Even though the i3 en­tered pro­duc­tion in 2013 it’s still one of the most futuristic-look­ing EVs.

As BMW’s first masspro­duced zero-emis­sions ve­hi­cle, the i3 was de­signed from the ground up to be as eco­nom­i­cal as pos­si­ble.

The lat­est model – the i3 94 AH – of­fers a qual­ity in­te­rior and an im­pres­sive all-elec­tric range of up to 195 miles, which can be in­creased to 276 miles if you opt for the Range Ex­ten­der (which adds a small petrol en­gine to recharge the bat­tery).

This up­mar­ket im­age and im­pres­sive range does come at a price.

PROS:

Futuristic looks, im­pres­sive bat­tery range and well-ap­pointed in­te­rior.

CONS:

Pricey to buy, only four seats and Range Ex­ten­der model isn’t a pure EV.
