BMW i. Born Electric.

Dick Lovett Bristol. Official BMW i Dealer.


Dick Lovett BMW is pleased to bring you the future of sustainable mobility; BMW i. 

BMW i is all about visionary electric vehicles and services, inspiring design and a new definition of premium that is defined by sustainability. BMW i redefines the idea of personal transport with purpose-built car concepts and a focus on sustainability throughout the entire process – from materials to end-of-life recycling.


BMW i3 – an emission-free* car for urban motoring.



Everything about the BMW i3 is designed for life in the city. Driven by a locally emission-free electric motor, the BMW i3 guarantees mobility wherever you need it. It’s at home anywhere, from the edge of town to the centre of the city. Not surprisingly, the BMW i3 also qualifies for a full 100% discount in the London Congestion Zone.

Aside from the ecological considerations, the BMW i3 makes a strong impression with its breathtaking acceleration at low speeds or from a standstill. And it boasts an impressive real-world range of 80-100 miles thanks to the high-voltage lithium ion battery. If you want even more flexibility, the BMW i3 Range Extender adds to the achievable range.

A BMW i3 with Range Extender increases the range to between 150-186 miles on one 9-litre tank of fuel.  The range extender is a small, smooth-running combustion engine that runs on unleaded petrol. This acts as a generator, which maintains the charge of the high-voltage battery so that the vehicle can continue to drive electrically.  It will cut in automatically when your battery state of charge falls below 20%, but you can choose to use it earlier should that better suit your journey.

The BMW i3 is totally emission free* with 0g/km CO2, meaning 0% BIK payable, whilst still achieving 0-62mph in 7.2 seconds.

Prices for the BMW i3 start from £25,680 and BMW i3 with Range Extender start from £28,830 (both prices include HM Treasury Plug-In Car Grant of £5,000). The BMW i3 will be available from November 2013.

BMW i8 Concept – the future of the sports car.



Sometimes it is time to leave the city. Escape the restrictions of everyday life. The BMW i8 Concept is an icon of progress. It combines the energising performance of a sports car with benchmark efficiency.

The BMW i8 is expected to launch in 2014.


Sustainability and BMW i.

Sustainability characterises BMW Group’s approach. Which is why we are the Dow Jones Sustainability Index leader for the eighth year running, chosen as the most sustainable company in the automotive industry. With BMW EfficientDynamics, we have set ourselves the goal of continually reducing emissions while increasing driving pleasure. BMW i uses innovative BMW EfficientDynamics technologies but goes even further: from design to production, from the useful life of the vehicle to its disposal, every detail is based on sustainability.
