BMW UK offering test drives of the new i3 electric from 16 November, three charging options available

28 Oct 2013

Having signed up for a Test Drive of a BMW i3 electric vehicle, I was called today by a BMW representative to confirm my interest, and to refer me to my nearest test drive dealership.

On behalf of you, dear reader, I assented, providing an answer to a market segmenting question, specifically on what was my main interest in the vehicle: the options being either the technology, environmental performance or fuel cost savings benefits.

I was also offered information on, or rather, asked if I'd thought about, the charging options, the options being:

  • Standard 13 Amp charger - that charges in 8-10 hours, that comes free with the vehicle;
  • BMW Wallbox - £315 subject to survey and government grant (£1315 without the grant). Installed by Schneider Electric. 3-4 hours to 80% charge.
  • Connector for charging at public charge points - £80.

Test Drives of the BMW 3i will be available in the UK from 16 November.
