THE ULTIMATE ROAD TRIP. 100% POWERED BY ELECTRICITY.

During April and May 2017 two electric BMW i3 vehicles will be making the journey from Bluff to Cape Reinga as part of the South to North Electric Vehicle Drive. It’s a spectacular road trip, made even more remarkable by the fact that the BMW i3s will take on the challenge without being supplemented by a petrol engine range extender.


Combine the all-electric BMW i3 with the nationwide network of ChargeNow charging stations developed in partnership with BMW, and you have a car that’s capable of traversing the length of New Zealand on nothing but electric power. Now you can travel over 1,000 kilometres, powered 100% by electricity.
 

An electric car that can go the distance.

The entire vehicle architecture of the BMW i3 has been redeveloped from scratch. With dimensions identical to its predecessor, the new energy pack has around 50 percent more capacity. Improvements in energy management and the use of tyres with reduced roll resistance further enhance the BMW i3’s efficiency. So it maintains its reputation as the world’s most efficient electric vehicle with the lowest electricity costs. At the same time, the extremely light and pleasantly quiet BMW i3 boasts dynamic driving qualities like no other vehicle in its class.

Watch out for us as the South to North Drive is coming soon to a town near you.

also be events and displays at other towns along the route.
