It wasn’t too long ago that many motorists would have laughed at the idea of an all-electric vehicle. Once considered futuristic or impractical, electric cars are increasingly becoming the norm among drivers who want to reduce the size of their carbon footprint.
Earlier this year, the BMW brand announced plans to bring 12 all-new BMW electric vehicles to market by 2025. The carmaker said select models will be introduced before that already ambitious “deadline.”
If you’re ready to have a BMW electric car in your driveway now, you don’t need to wait for the automaker to unveil its upcoming models. That’s because we already have luxury BMW electric cars in our lineup, the 2019 BMW i3, the 2019 BMW i8 Convertible, and the 2019 BMW i8 Coupe.
The BMW brand didn’t just switch engines to make its electric vehicles. Instead, the carmaker developed LifeDrive, which is an architectural concept specifically created for the brand’s EVs. This concept employs a two-part construction that’s meant to reduce an EV’s weight, improve its driving range, and make the car’s cabin comfortable and roomy.
When you visit our Greater Boston BMW dealership to test drive a premium EV, you’ll see that the car takes full advantage of all the power generated under its hood. That’s partially because BMW electric cars are made with carbon fiber reinforced plastic, a material that’s often used to construct race cars. CFRP is just as strong as steel, but it only weighs half as much. Because BMW electric vehicles are made with CFRP, they offer enviable responsiveness when accelerating and boast laudable efficiency.
