BMW announces significant price cut for i3 and i3s

BMW i3

BMW has slashed the pricing of its i3 electric car to ensure customers can still take advantage of the Government’s plug-in grant.

The base i3 now has an on-the-road price of £33,805 (before grant), a reduction of £5,880.

Sportier i3s models have been cut even further, with prices starting at £34,805 before incentives – a saving of almost £7,500.

BMW says there are no changes to the car’s specification levels. All models come with heated seats, parking sensors, LED lights and sat-nav as standard.

Earlier this month, the Government has cut the electric car grant from £3,000 to £2,500 and excluded models that cost more than £35,000. With its new pricing, the i3 is still eligible for the grant.

Using a 42.2kWh battery, the 170PS i3 offers a range of up to 190 miles. The 184PS i3s has a range of up to 173 miles.

Since launching in 2013, more than 22,000 i3 models are now on British roads.
