Imagining a future transportation model where innovation becomes the norm and carbon footprints are reduced to a toe in the sand were just part of the vision that brought about the BMW i3. The all-electric i3 is part of the next phase of personal mobility, where how you get from point A to point B is just as important as whether you get there at all. With a range extender that allows for up to 180 miles between charges and more than 28,000 public charging stations, the BMW i3 is the cure for “range phobia,” or the fear of running out of juice during a trip. See all the technology and innovation that goes into the i3 when you take a test drive at Chapman BMW on Camelback.

Carbon Fiber Brings Weight Down

One of the challenges of building an electric vehicle is coming up with just the right power to weight ratio. With an extensive use of carbon fiber reinforced plastic, BMW was able to cut the weight of the i3 without sacrificing safety. Carbon fiber reinforced plastic is only about half the weight of steel, but just as strong. It’s also a thinner material, resulting in a lighter and open feeling in the roomy cockpit. The interior also features a heavy usage of renewable and recycled materials, adding to the environmental appeal of the i3.

Technology Key to i3 Success

From the onboard navigation system that makes driving around unfamiliar territory a snap to the mobile integration that lets you use a smart watch or phone to control important vehicle functions, the advanced technology of the BMW i3 is what lures many customers to try their first electric vehicle. Opt for the Level 2 charging station and you can bring your i3 up to a full charge in just 4.5 hours. It only takes about 40 minutes to get an 80 percent charge with the DC combo fast charger. When you’re out on the road, the ChargeNow Card gives you access to more than 28,000 charging ports across the U.S.

Choose Your World Special Package

When you purchase your BMW i3, you can literally drive in your own little world. That’s due to the number of special “World” packages that offer different color and feature combinations. Deka World is a calming interior featuring grey cloth and blue accents. Mega World makes the best use of renewable materials with a cream-colored leather and special trim. Giga World adds on to the Deka World package with special wheels and rich color combinations in the interior. For the ultimate in sophistication, check out the Tera World package with high-end renewable materials and upscale craftsmanship.

Each model of the impressive BMW 4-Series, the Gran Coupe, Coupe and Convertible, are impressive in their own way. Sitting low like an animal on its haunches, just ready to pounce, the 4-Series conveys power even when it’s parked. The aggressive interior gives way to a sophisticated interior designed around the driver to make the driving experience unforgettable and irresistible. Test drive a new BMW 4-Series today when you visit Chapman BMW on Camelback.

Engineered to be Nimble

With a low profile, stiff suspension and near perfect 50/50 weight distribution, the BMW 4-Series was engineered to be as nimble as a cat, albeit a very powerful cat. With a TwinPower Turbo engine that produces up to 320 horsepower, the 4-Series is capable of dashing from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds, making you the most popular driver in the office carpool. Don’t think that with such power comes the need to stop at every gas station. Aerodynamics and special features like strategically placed air breathers help reduce drag, meaning your new 4-Series can achieve up to 34 mpg.

Coupe Offers Unforgettable Athleticism

If you’re of the belief that two doors is just the right number, the BMW 4-Series Coupe is your kind of car. A stunning profile features smooth lines, flared wheel arches and a look that is unmistakably that of an Ultimate Driving Machine. Slip behind the wheel and the racecar seats will hug your body, keeping you firmly in place as you put the 4-Series through its paces on the track or a deserted country road. Stunning red leather with black accents make for a delightful combination that screams “speed.” Thoughtfully placed controls put the power of this BMW squarely at your fingertips.

Gran Coupe Offers More Interior Room

With four doors and a roofline that’s just a smidge higher than the Coupe, the BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe delivers a bit more interior space and headroom. Rear seats fold down to provide 45.9 cubic feet of storage space for those times when you need to fit in some luggage, a big screen TV or all your ski equipment. The Gran Coupe performs like the Coupe in every other way, with some additional chassis strengthening provided to create similar rigidity and handling.

Drop the Top in 4-Series Convertible

If the thought of whisking through the desert with the sun on your head and the wind in your hair is appealing, the BMW 4-Series convertible is the vehicle for you. With the same outstanding performance as its siblings, this model offers the ability to raise or lower your top in just 20 seconds, even at speeds up to 11 mph. That can come in handy when a monsoon appears out of nowhere or some mountain showers try to dampen your day. Take some time to look over the entire 4-Series inventory when you visit Chapman BMW on Camelback today.
