Let's See what a BMW EV can Really Do!

It goes without saying that BMW is a brand built around vehicles created for peak performance. So what happens when the engineering, design and production that is used to create top market performance models is applied to a mid-range EV hatchback. Well we will certainly find out once the new BMW i3 arrives here at Rick Hendrick BMW Charleston.

This exciting new electric model for BMW will go on sale later this year with a starting price of $41,350. We have already heard some claims about its 0-62 sprint time of 7.2 seconds and its top speed of 93 mph, but until today we had yet to see it in action.

Now our friends at BMW have released a video of the new i3 being pushed to its limits in a track test. For all of those who doubt the potential of EV performance, we challenge you to spend the next 49 seconds watching the i3 scream around this closed course race track.

For more information about the upcoming i3 or any other new BMW vehicle in our inventory, simply stop by the Rick Hendrick BMW Charleston showroom for a visit. Located at 1518 Savannah Hwy Charleston, SC, our dealership serves drivers in the Summerville and Mt. Pleasant area with the best in BMW sales and service.
