Material ensures the lighter weight of the whole car. CFRB, for example, has half the weight of steel. Another advantage of this material on steel is that it oxidizes. Shell section consists CFRB life, but the body is composed of plastic panels replaced. This section is attached to the frame with screws and adhesive hard drive.

The storage capacity of the battery is not known, but a full charge allows the car to travel up to 140 miles.
BMW i3 promises to reach speeds of 62 mph in 8 seconds. The estimated speed of 93 mph . This limit is set so as to save battery power. The battery charging time six hours of material on a full charge . I3 is a five-door hatchback models with suicide -style rear doors. This car is about 151.4 inches long and 79.2 cm in the area.
