If you’re a fan of the compact and environmentally-friendly 2016 BMW i3, then you’re sure to love what BMW has in store for the model for 2017. The new i3 model will provide 50 percent more battery life, something that is certainly going to please fans of the compact model. The additional battery life is due to a new higher energy density of the lithium ion cells. That greater battery power means the model will be able to travel more than 100 miles, even with the air conditioning or heat turned up full-blast. The motor will allow the model to accelerate from zero to 60 miles per hour in just about seven seconds.
