BMW just announced pricing of the new 2017 BMW i3 with 94 Ah lithium-ion cells and 33 kWh total battery capacity for the US.
And as it turns out, pricing is just slightly higher as compared to the previous 22 kWh version (that we believe is now on a liquidation sale run to burn-off older battery inventory).
The all-electric BMW i3 will now start from $44,595 (including $995 S&H), while the BMW i3 REx (with range-extender) starts at $48,445.
After $7,500 federal tax credit it will be $37,095 and $40,945 respectively. For reference, the older 2016 (22 kWh) version was priced at $35,895 and $39,745
