May 4th, 2016 by

Have you been considering “going green” in your next car purchase, but have some hesitations about the range? In that case, we at Preston BMW have some good news for you: the 2017 BMW i3 will be seeing its range grow significantly over previous model years, finally putting range anxiety to rest for good. Take a look at the video below for more information.

The 2017 BMW i3 will see a range of 114 miles per charge, an improvement of 40% over the previous range of 81 miles per charge. The battery’s capacity also grew by 50%, however the size of the battery remains unchanged. With a range topping 100 miles on a single charge, any worries you had about running short of energy during your drive should go by the wayside.

Though the prices at the pump aren’t too painful right now, there’s no telling when they will fluctuate again, and the benefits of going electric don’t just stop at saving money on gas, you’ll also be cutting your tailpipe emissions, which is great news for the entire planet. Don’t wait for gas to go up again before wishing you had gone with the 2017 BMW i3 and its 100+ miles of electric range. There’s still some time before the official launch of the 2017 model BMW i3, but you can still come on into our Boardman, OH showroom to learn more about the 2017 i3 and find out how you can get your hands on one when they’re released late this fall.
