Individual mobility is on the verge of a new era. Topics such as autonomous driving, electrification and connectivity are giving rise to new adventures. The BMW Vision iNEXT is making a bold and positive statement for the future ahead. It drives purely electrically, with a high level of automation and enjoys full connectivity. When travelling in the BMW Vision iNEXT, drivers can choose between taking the controls themselves in “Boost” mode and being driven in “Ease” mode. Thanks to the electric drive, “Boost” mode is highly dynamic, almost silent and emission-free. The interior gains a completely different design and an entirely new status. The BMW Vision iNEXT becomes a place of relaxation, interaction, entertainment or concentration. This makes it increasingly possible to determine how the time during the ride is put to use. From 2021, the series production model will be appearing on the roads as the new technology flagship.

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

  • BMW i3 (120 Ah):
    Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 0
    CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 0
    Electric consumption in kWh/100 km (combined): 14.2

    BMW i3s (120 Ah):
    Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 0
    CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 0
    Electric consumption in kWh/100 km (combined): 14.7

    The values of fuel consumptions, CO2 emissions and energy consumptions shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model.

    The CO2 efficiency specifications are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the European Regulation in its current version applicable. The values shown are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle for the classification.

    For further information about the official fuel consumption and the specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and at
