BMW to provide new version of i3 electric vehicle in 2017

In fact, the BMW i3 has proven itself to be a lightweight, cutting-edge urban electric auto.

For BMW's i3, the automaker seems to have taken some prevailing critique into consideration and have come up with changes accordingly. The revamped electric vehicle is expected to be unveiled next year.

According to a recent report we can expect to see an updated version of the BMW i3 next year, the vehicle will apparently get a number of updates.

The remodeled BMW i3 will also come with a refurbished front and rear, beyond the current i3's design.

The only aspect BMW i3 is found to outscoring Tesla Model 3 is in terms of acceleration and where the former can reach 0-60 miles per hour speed in 4.2 seconds, but the later takes 6 seconds.

The current design is on the lines of futuristic tendencies of BMW but is a bit more expensive and is unlikely to enter India where BMW is selling its green supercar. One of the upcoming Tesla vehicles, the Model 3, is expected to offer around 215 miles of minimum range even on the base model. The move is supposed to attract more buyers for the i3. For now, the latest battery pack in the i3 features a range of around 300 km, or a little more than 250 km based on terrain and weather. On the other hand, the rear wheel-drive version of Model S equipped with a 60 kWh battery roughly costs $68,000 without add-ons. In 2015, BMW sold just 25,000 units of the vehicle. The BMW i3 is getting a facelift next year, and a further increase in range.

The major differences surfaced between BMW i3 and Tesla Model 3 were its battery capacity. Now BMW also jumped into the market. Rather, BMW wouldn't want to fall short of its rivals.
