BMW I3 REX 2015

The BMW i3 is powered by a 360-volt electric motor that puts out 125kW and 250Nm of torque. This provides more than enough performance for a runabout suburban hatchback. Zero to 100km/h in 7.9 seconds and this car comes with the Range Extender (REX) engine, which is 650cc twin-cylinder petrol unit that charges the batteries.


The petrol engine never powers the i3 directly and only maintains the battery charge at its current level, it doesn't increase the amount of energy in the batteries, it simply increases the overall range of the vehicle. This is done to encourage drivers to use electrical power as often as possible to reduce exhaust emissions. Further emphasising this is the fact that the petrol tank contains a mere nine litres.

Battery Range: 120km

REX Range: 120km
