Re: BMW i3 auxiliary battery sizes

BMW is running the Chargeforward program in some places in US, and it encourages to charge to 100% every time , and when ever possible. Most people are the Lease , so they could also care less . Is there any particular reason why the battery should be at ~50% and not let’s say 100%? A Li-ion battery...

Re: 2019 bmw i3 usa web site released

A BEV identical to the one I purchased last month is $750 less despite the new battery. If they will run another $10000 off promo next year I'll be jealous. IIRC, the Park Distance Control option was $750- it is probably standard now. Also noticed that they finally switched to the KWH battery ratin...

Re: 2018 i3 Recall

I agree with both of you, and that was my thought also. I decided to call Webasto (the Turbocord Mfg) directly and they verified my Turbocord is ok to use based on the serial number. I am getting confused by this recall. This is getting complex. 1) BMW Dealer said, the way they will resolve this, i...

Re: How many miles do you have on your i3?

For i3 rex owners, why would people want to eventually sell the car and get a new one. I mean, which part of the car will break down or trouble ( say at 200k miles) , causing people to need a new one ? I have the 94h rex, and cant think of a reason, which will make me buy a new one. Loss of range up...

NMC111, to NMW622 to may be NMC 811 While of course, the total capacity increases, what is it coming against ? What are the Cons ? I guess reduced stabi...
