Eleanor Norton. BMW. October 14th , 2017.
Like the BMW i8, which has grown into the world‘s most successful hybrid sports car due to its unmatched and richly enthralling blend of driving pleasure and sustainability, the pure-electric BMW i3 is a constantly expanding presence in international car markets. The i3 is the biggest-selling electric vehicle in the premium compact segment and has now achieved a significantly larger share of the overall electric vehicle market than the BMW brand occupies with conventionally powered cars.
The BMW i8 Protonic Frozen Yellow Edition - which will be produced in a limited run and go on sale in September 2017 - owes its striking appearance to a model-specific paint finish. The exclusive exterior shade Protonic Frozen Yellow shares its canvas with accents in Frozen Grey metallic. A sophisticated application process is employed to transfer the paint to the BMW i8‘s carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) bodywork. The silky-matt shimmer of the finish shines a particularly vivid spotlight on the plug-in-hybrid sports car‘s dynamic lines and flowing surface design. The special-edition model will sport newly designed 20-inch BMW i light-alloy wheels in W-Spoke design with mattpainted surfaces and mixed-size tyres.
Among these features are the standard - and strikingly dynamic - M Performance-specific exterior design cues, which include the M Aerodynamic kit with design elements finished in Cerium Grey Metallic. The flap-controlled M Sport exhaust system with Black Chrome tailpipe embellishers, M Sport brakes, M Sport suspension with M Performance specific tuning, Variable sport steering and standard 19-inch or optional 20-inch and 21-inch cast light-alloy wheels provide a distinctive sporting character. The X3 M40i can be equipped with the available Adaptive M Sport suspension, which covers an even wider spread of ride comfort featuring the sportiest set-up suspension available.
The new BMW i3s comes equipped as standard with sports suspension that includes a 10-millimetre drop in ride height. The additional 40 millimetres of track width compared to the BMW i3 is given added impact by the black wheel arch borders. The new BMW i3s is available with exclusive 20-inch light-alloy wheels in double-spoke design that are 20 millimetres wider than the previously available versions. They can be ordered in the Bicolour and Jet Black colour variants. Like the exterior design, the interior styling of the new BMW i3 and new BMW i3s is rooted in the novel LifeDrive vehicle architecture. The carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) passenger cell has a wonderfully spacious feel about it and is dominated by a sense of lightness. The design principle of the two four-seater models means there is no need for either fixed B-pillars or a transmission tunnel. Doors that open in opposite directions allow the occupants to get in and out with the greatest of ease.
