The new BMW i3 2017 will come in two versions: one with the current 60 Ah and a new version with 94 Ah. The current version with a battery capacity of 21.6 kWh (of which 18.8 kWh available for driving) will thus continue to be sold and will be flanked by a version with higher battery density and 33.2 kWh capacity (of which 27.2 kWh available for driving).
With the larger battery BMW states that the everyday operation range is extended from the 130 km (80 mi) to 200 km (125 mi). As usual, however, the range depends on many factors, especially speed and temperature, and BMW has improved the communication about this.
The price in Sweden is still SEK 339 900 (EUR 35 900) for the version with the same battery as the current model and SEK 354 900 (EUR 37 500) for the version with the larger battery. With a difference of only SEK 15 000 (EUR 1580) the choice is easy.
The version with larger battery will also be sold with a three-phase AC chargers that can charge at 11 kW instead of the current one phase charger at 7.4 kW. Why it cannot charge three phase 32A at 22 kW is something I do not understand, but please comment if you know the answer. Both models can, just as before, be charged with 50kW DC CCS rapid chargers.
