Eco-friendly BMW i3 is also a driver’s car

BMW wanted to make sure that even their new eco-friendly electric car was as good to drive as any other BMW. The hybrid synchronous electric motor, which weighs only 110 lbs., is developed and produced specially by the BMW Group for use in the BMW i3. With maximum revs of 11,400 rpm, it generates an output of 170 hp and outputs maximum torque of 184 lb-ft on tap from the moment the car pulls away. That’s propels the 2,700 lb car from 0-30mph in 3.5 seconds, 0-60mph in approximately 7.2 seconds, and to an electronically limited top speed of 93 mph (preliminary USA figures).
