Electric BMW i3S on sale with 50% discount

The reason was the very small power reserve, which does not allow performing the stated tasks.

Electric cars BMW i3S are on sale in the USA. It is noteworthy that they will be sold at a 50% discount. The history of these cars began in 2014, when purchases in the amount of $ 10 million were made for the Los Angeles police. The mayor of the city decided to fight for a good ecology in the city and considered that the police should be a good example.

Initially, the police department chose between the Tesla Model 3 and the compact BMW i3s and eventually settled on the second option. This played a cruel joke – the range of the German car is only 130 km, which is extremely small for patrolling the streets. Also, the exterior of the cars was considered too bright for police cars. As a result, the cars stood idle, and now they decided to sell them back to dealers.

Also, anyone can buy a car at a price of 15,000 – 20,000 dollars, which is 50% less than the original cost.

In this case, the cars will be under warranty until the end of 2020. Some time ago, it was reported that BMW was planning to stop production of the electric i3, but later it was not confirmed. In all likelihood, the car will last 3-4 years in the model line.

Meanwhile, BMW is preparing an update for its flagship X7 crossover. The main differences will be in the front and rear of the car, which are carefully hidden with a camouflage film. But the motor range should be preserved, although a decrease in gasoline consumption is possible.
