The mid-cycle refresh of the BMW i3 was highly anticipated and, to be honest, quite necessary. Despite being a great car on its own, the BMW i3 was starting to struggle a bit, compared to its newer competitors. Though, the biggest news with the BMW i3’s LCI update is the addition of the BMW i3 S. The aforementioned addition to the i3-lineup is the model’s sportier model. It’s the car that many enthusiasts were clamoring for, thanks to the i3’s high-potential sporty combination of uber-light chassis, rear-wheel drive and sharp steering (even if the i3 S isn’t quite as sporty as fans were hoping for).

So, naturally, this new refresh is weighing on the minds of potential buyers. If that’s you, than you’re in for some helpful news, as we’ve recently gotten our hands on the official pricing and spec sheet of the new BMW i3, thanks to our sources, before it’s been officially released.

In these PDFs we’ve found, we can see the pricing and specs on the BMW i3, i3 REx, i3 S and i3 S REx. So it’s the full gamut of  i3 models and all of their options. We can see the different “Worlds” that are available, all of their different options and even the wheel choices. It’s a pretty comprehensive spec sheet, so if you’re in the market for a new BMW i3 or i3 S, this could really help you chose what you want before the Bavarians officially release it.

We’re excited about the new BMW i3, as it looks better and will have some more improved tech, such as BMW’s latest iDrive system and Apple CarPlay. Though, we’re especially excited about driving the new BMW i3 S, as it will offer a sportier ride and a bit of extra power. While it might not be as performance-oriented as we’d hoped, nor does it meet the potential of the chassis, it’s still interesting to see a sportier variant of a car that’s already surprisingly fun to drive.

    Great looking commute car. Glad working in extended range. I really like the idea of a simple low maintenance motorcycle engine for extended range but battery tech as improved where not needed. I do not want a car with 2 modes of propulsion with twice the maintenance. BEV’s are low maintenance with few moving parts, no oil changes or tuneups! Once your fully electric X3 arrives, you will definitely be in the running! BMW is really ahead of any manufacturer in their Carbon fiber tech company in Washington state. Light weight helps handling and battery range as well as gas range! All the manufacturers are still tip toeing into the EV market but with more countries banning fossil fuels, the car companies are being forced to comply. Oil is a finite commodity

    Jezes H Chyst…. what will it take for BMW to offer an i3 with decent range? And how about a charging network that’s a little more reliable? I’m constantly dealing with ugly EVGo chargers being out of service while beautiful well-lit Tesla chargers are twenty feet away. Kinda makes me feel stupid not buying a Tesla. Love my i3. But being a non-conformist only goes so far. Get with it BMW!
