BMW i3 94Ah REX 2017 review: Torquing Heads

Nikki Cousins and Peter Anderson road test and review the 94Ah version of the 2017 BMW i3 REX, with specs, fuel consumption and verdict.

If you like your electromotive propulsion but don't have $120,000 to open your account with Tesla, your only real option is the BMW i3. Up until recently, that car has been a bit of a Hugh Grant - while very cool, it didn't have a lot of range.

Two years after first going on sale (and almost 60,000 global sales later), the i3 has had the bump of the good kind - the power bump. No, it's not got more power, it's just got more battery capacity which means it'll go for longer. The only downside it costs more.

Nikki and Peter put it through the Torquing Heads wringer to see if the extra 50 per cent of electric range (plus the nerve-settling range-extending engine) can still those fluttery hearts while also making sure the i3 is a practical family car.
