What is it: Part tech showpiece, part quasi-practical city car, the BMW i3 is the utilitarian counterpoint to the wedge-y i8. You can get the i3 as either a 153-mile pure EV or a range-extended hybrid, which adds a two cylinder gasoline engine that can give a maximum of 200 miles of range before you have to refill and/or recharge. Key Competitors: Tesla Model 3, Chevrolet Bolt, Hyundai Ioniq EV Base Price: $48,645 As-Tested Price: $54,595 Full review: 2018 BMW i3 first drive Highlights: The i3 is offered in regular and Sport trims. This is the latter, which gets 181 hp and 199 lb-ft of torque to the non-Sport’s 170 hp and 184 lb-ft. The hilariously named $1,800 Giga World package adds 18-inch wheels and visual interest to the interior, which is heavy on contrasting leather and wool accents.
