The 2016 BMW i3 comes powered by a 125-kilowatt electric motor that is fed by a 22-kiilowatt (kWh) lithium-ion battery pack that is located beneath the floor. The electric motor and battery combine for an output of 170 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque that is sent to the rear wheels. The Range Extender model incorporates a small two-cylinder gasoline engine that serves as a generator to resupply the battery pack, which extends the mile range to 150 miles and results in an efficiency of 117 MPGe.
