BMW i3 Lease Deals

The BMW i3 has been around since 2013, but – thanks to its interesting design features and regular battery pack upgrades – it remains a great all-electric car to lease. The interior looks as fresh as ever and it offers just enough technology, range and performance to make it a viable alternative to other compact EVs.

BMW i3 Top Features

Easy-to-use infotainment system.

Futuristic, minimalist interior.

Plenty of everyday driving performance

  • There’s plenty of space for 2 adults up front and it’s easy to climb into the rear seats thanks to the rear-hinged door layout. Even baby seats can be fitted to the Isofix points without too much hassle, but the overall space in the rear is a bit tight for taller adults.

    The boot offers 260 litres of luggage space, well behind other all-electric offerings like the Nissan Leaf (435 litres) and Renault Zoe (338 litres). Fold the rear seats down and the resulting 1,100 litres of load space is much more competitive with rivals. The rear backrests can also be folded in a 50/50 split if required.

    Front occupants get access to 2 centrally located cupholders, as well as generously proportioned door bins. A smallish glovebox can store a few more items and there is a central armrest, which folds up to reveal more storage space for phones and smaller items.

  • The standard i3 is available with a 170hp electric motor, which promises up to 190 miles on a charge. There is also a more powerful 184hp i3s variant, which lowers the range to around 175 miles but is slightly quicker off the line. Both are subject to the 1% benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax structure for all-electric vehicles, which can make a big difference to your leasing costs compared to a petrol- or diesel-powered alternative.

    In real-world use, you can expect at least 160 miles of range from both models. This is slightly less than what some newer rivals can offer – both the Renault Zoe and top-spec Nissan Leaf claim around 240 miles on a charge – but the BMW’s small 42.2kWh battery pack is quick to charge and it keeps the i3’s weight down, which benefits handling.

    Using a standard 2.4kW 3-pin plug will take 15 hours to replenish 80% of the battery, while the 11kW BMW i Wallbox cuts that time down to just 3.2 hours. If you are out on the road, then a 50kW quick charger will do the same job in 42 minutes.

BMW i3 Models Available To Lease

i3 Hatchback 

The i3 comes in a 5-door hatchback design. The rear doors are hinged from the back which makes access easier than in a conventional layout. The body is a carbon-fibre composite, which is extremely rigid and negates the need for a central pillar between the front and rear doors.

High-Performance Models 

The i3s offers 184hp, which is 14hp more than the standard variant, dropping its 0-62mph time from 7.3 to 6.9 seconds. It also has wider tyres, a lower ride height and stiffer suspension settings, all of which give the i3s a more planted feel through the corners.

BMW i3 Trim Levels To Lease

Loft Lodge SuiteThe BMW i3 is offered in 3 ‘Interior World’ trims. The base Loft offers seats which are covered in a combination of cloth and Sensatec material, with interior LED lighting also on the kit list. A multifunction steering wheel, cruise control and automatic headlights are also standard on this trim.

The BMW i3 Vs Competitors

The all-electric hatchback segment in which the BMW i3 competes in has changed drastically since it was launched. Less pricey rivals like the Renault Zoe and Nissan Leaf can go further on a charge, while the Tesla Model 3 feels just as special inside and is far quicker than the BMW i3, although it does cost more money. A newcomer on the scene which the BMW must also contend with is the Volkswagen ID.3.All worthy rivals, yet the BMW i3 remains an appealing leasing choice thanks to its practical layout, nippy performance and classy interior.
  • Yes. The current BMW i3 range has dropped the range-extender variant, which used a small petrol engine beneath the boot to replenish battery power. This leaves the 170hp i3 and 184hp i3s as the sole all-electric offerings.

  • The BMW i3 has 260 litres of boot space, which increases to 1,100 litres with the rear seats folded flat.

  • You can choose from Loft, Lodge and Suite interior trims. Each tier offers different materials and finishes inside the cabin, while additional packs can be specified which add items like larger alloy wheels, Comfort Access and a Harman/Kardon sound system.

  • The BMW i3 offers plenty of space up front and the backward-hinged rear doors make getting into the second row less of a hassle.

  • The BMW i3 remains a popular EV to lease thanks to its well-designed interior, strong performance and an exterior design that has hardly aged over the years.
