I found this cargo liner for the i3 that covers the folded down rear seats. Has any one tried one out?

[website link deleted because it no longer exists]

Does any other company make something like this?

Umm … BMW.

I bought an i3 Function Cover from our BMW dealer using the accessories discount that was included with the purchase of our i3. It covers the backs of both back seats regardless of whether they're up or folded down, it has enough length to protect the bumper top, and it can be used as a waterproof picnic blanket, etc. It's always installed in our i3.

Unfortunately, I shut the hatch on it accidentally which poked a small hole in it :x Otherwise, after over 4 years of usage, it's still in great condition.
 
I had a rubber/all season mat out of a Volvo V70 III wagon. It has a fold about halfway down it (weird design feature), that turned out to be really useful, as it normally will cover all of the carpeted area in the trunk, and if I fold the seats down, I can un-hinge the rubber mat to cover the seat back. I wish it was just slightly longer, as it does not cover the black plastic back of the trunk, just the carpeted area, though for it being OEM (of another brand), it fit surprisingly well. As the i3 is narrower than a V70, I cut about an inch and a quarter off of each side.

Thanks, that's exactly what I was looking for.
I've had the i3 for only about a 2 weeks. The BMW dealer I bought it from didn't know that cover existed when I asked if there was something similar to the OEM one in my allroad.

Thanks for the tip, I may need to see how the rubber cargo mats in my allroad fit in i3.
 
I'm going to try one from Rhino UK (not the same as Rhino US)

I'll post a review but it will be a while before I get it. They are made to order. I won't even have my i3 for a few more weeks.
 
I purchased the WeatherTech cargo mat. Waterproof, lightweight, excellent fit, easy to remove and clean. I got the light grey color which makes it a bit easier to see things in the black interior. The only negative is that it does not protect the seat backs when they are folded down. Still, highly recommended:

How werd - in the edit screen, the posting below has info an links to BOTH covers, yet when posted only the first half of the post shows - go back to edit, and the whole post shows???

BMW makes two OEM cargo area covers for the i3.
1. the BMW i3 Function cover.
2. The BMW i3 Trunk Mat (and folding container)

As Aloha Art posted above - the BMW i3 function cove protects both the seat backs and cargo area, seats up or down, including protecting the top of the bumper when loading.

And the BMW i3 cargo cover - which also folds up (using a built-in draw-string) to also make a shallow cargo box. When unfolded and flat, it exactly fits and covers the i3 cargo area.

@RostHaus wondering how the Cover Craft custom fit cargo liner worked for you. I have a dog who sheds and gets car sick, and am looking for something that will provide maximal coverage while also being easy to dismantle, clean, and reinstall. I noticed that both Hatchbag and RhinoUK have waterproof covers that fit all the way to the front, but I'm hesitant since they have to be fastened with adhesive. Would love to know if you had a good experience with the Cover Craft.
 
I'm going to test out Cover Craft's custom fit cargo liner, I found it on sale on their outlet store for $50. Instead on $98

I'd link it but they took it offline immediately after I bought it.

You can find it on their eBay outlet store here:

I have no idea if it will be decent, but their UVS100 sunscreens are my go to.
I bought one of these - I’m in the UK though. I find it excellent because it uses Velcro to attach direct to the sides & floor. It’s good for cleaning & easy to fit & remove.
 
I took a slightly different (and probably cheaper) route. I cut a piece of plywood to fit the back with the seats down for dirty/heavy loads. It just leans against the wall in the garage when not in use.
