With the introduction of their first electric vehicle, BMW has also premiered a new way to bundle packages and options. Instead of calling them packages, like the other BMW series cars, the i3 can be ordered with a Mega, Giga and Tera “World”.

Since all the buyers are faced with these options, we decided to take a closer look at the “Worlds”.

i3 Mega World


Standard 19-inch wheels; navigation; BMW ConnectedDrive; 7.4-kW on-board charger; LED headlights, taillights, and daytime running lights; and “Sensatec” and sustainable cloth interior trimmings. A leather-trimmed steering wheel is also included.

i3 Giga World – $1,700 extra


Adds Giga-specific 19-inch wheels; leather- and wool cloth–wrapped interior; (Giga Classic Natural Leather and Carum Spice Grey Wool Cloth); decadent contrasting stitching for the leather-wrapped steering wheel; universal garage-door opener; keyless access; a sunroof (European option); and satellite radio.

i3 Tera World – $2,700 extra


Adds Tera-specific 19-inch wheels, full-leather interior (Tera Dalbergia Brown Full Natural Leather), textile accents with contrasting stitching, and anthracite floor mats.

The Giga and Tera World can get the 20 inch wheels for an extra $1,300.
