Much like...well, every electric vehicle maker in the past, BMW has promoted the i3's expected range capabilities ahead of launch, for both the all-electric and REx (range extended) version.
As I myself am working from "the road" on vacation, I decided to test out my location...looks like the i3 has me covered. Amphibious option for the win!
And to illustrate the i3's abilities they have also made a web-based app to show what your expected range at home would be in Comfort (normal mode), ECO PRO+ (super-snail EV mode) and Ranger Extender mode.
Here are the bullet-points from BMW as a refresher in "typical commuter operation::
- All-electric (comfort mode): 130-160 km range (81-99 miles)
- All-electric _ REx: 240-340 km range (149-211 miles)
