July 29th, BMW will unveil the 2014 i3. This will be the first electric car build from the ground up from BMW. There have been some improvements with the body and overall performance of the i3. LifeDrive is a new concept for BMW that focuses on the body, built from  ultra-stiff carbon fiber, making the car lightweight. It weighs in at 2,630 lbs. from the European configuration. The battery pack weights a light 45o lbs. The battery itself provides drivers 80-100 miles before a charge is needed. BMW decided on a Level 2 battery charger, allowing the battery to charge to 80 percent capacity, within 20 minutes.

If you’re worried about acceleration, the BMW i3 will go from 0 to 60 in seven seconds. The car has a limited electronic speed of 93 mph. BMW borrowed from their motorcycle division, placing a 650 cc two-cylinder engine in the rear of the car. The BMW i3 will also come equipped with ConnectedDrive which offers navigation, monitoring of battery life and can assist in best practices for efficiency. If you’ve been looking for an electric car, the BMW i3 might be a great option for you. Here are the price options for the i3.

Bring it in, we can help you with all your service needs.

Before you purchase a new BMW, let us tell you about the BMW 4 Series Coupe. Details were shared last week about what you can expect from the 4 Series Coupe. We can tell you that there are two different models, the 428i and the 435i. Each model will offer three unique trim levels: Luxury, Sport and M Sport. If you want a new BMW with gadgets, you may want to invest in looking at the Luxury model. If speed is more your thing, the M Sport offers just what you need.

There have been minor modifications with the wheelbase, it being a little longer. If you are familiar with the 6 Series, there are similarities. However, the price of the BMW 4 Series Coupe will be a lower price, the 428i starts at $41,425 and 435i at $46,925. Both models will offer xDrive all-wheel drive. The 428i offers 24o-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder gas engine. As we said earlier, if speed is your thing, the 435i offers a 300-horsepower turbocharged inline 6. Here are some pictures.

You can watch for the 2014 BMW 4 Series Coupe to be out late summer. Stop in and show us what model and color you decided on.
