BMW UK has announced a pricing realignment for the BMW i3 and BMW i3s to ensure that customers can continue to benefit from the UK Government Plug In Car Grant (PiCG) following the redefinition of the grant on 18 March 2021.
On the road pricing before grant for the BMW i3 120Ah now starts at £33,805 and £34,805 for the sporty BMW i3s 120Ah. There have been no changes to the high levels of standard specification offered on either model.
The PiCG offers consumers up to £2,500 off the retail price of vehicles that have CO2 emissions of less than 50g/km and can travel at least 70 miles without any tailpipe emissions and a retail price of £35,000 or less. The all-electric BMW i3 has a range of 182-190 miles (WLTP) (173-150 miles WLTP for the BMW i3s).
The BMW i3 has been a runaway success since its UK market launch in 2013. With sales growing exponentially, over 22,000 examples are now on British roads. That upwards sales trend continued in 2020 – a year where the UK car market shrunk by almost 30% overall. Since 2013, over 200,000 models have been manufactured and sold worldwide making BMW i3 the world’s most successful electric vehicle in the premium compact segment.
Built with sustainability in mind, the BMW i3 is an innovation driver for electric mobility and lightweight manufacturing techniques at BMW Group. This knowhow has been incorporated into the fifth generation of BMW eDrive technology that makes its UK debut in the BMW iX3 from July 2021. BMW iX and BMW i4 will also come to market in the UK before the end of 2021.
BMW Group will have 13 all-electric models on the road from 2023 when at least one all-electric model will be offered in approximately 90 percent of the company’s current market segments. Sales of the company’s fully-electric models are expected to grow by over 50 percent per year in the coming years and the company will deliver around two million all-electric vehicles globally by the end of 2025.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. The figures are calculated using a vehicle fitted with basic equipment in Germany, the ranges stated take into account differences in selected wheel and tyre sizes as well as the optional equipment. They may change during configuration.
The details marked * have already been calculated based on the new WLTP test cycle and adapted to NEDC for comparison purposes. In these vehicles, different figures than those published here may apply for the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related duties which are (also) based on CO2 emissions.
