Performance and fuel-efficiency are two concepts that always seemed mutually exclusive. This is, they were before the BMW i-Series arrived. These electric vehicles maximize efficiency and don't have to sacrifice performance to do it. The German automaker offers two distinct models in their i-Series lineup.

Our Mechanicsburg area BMW Dealership houses a variety of these different types of electric vehicles. All of our BMW models are competitively priced, well-maintained and at the forefront of innovation.


BMW i-Series: The Cars of the Future

The BMW i-Series models utilize eDrive technology to create show-stopping electric power. Their ability to perform is partially thanks to its Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic build. It weighs about half as much as steel but is just as strong. This material is usually used in racing cars but BMW has decided to build their i-Series models with it so you can get the full power of your electric engine.

Some Lancaster or Carlisle drivers may be buying an i-Series because of their concern for the environment. Electric vehicles create an emission-free driving experience and are constructed in one of the most modern factories in the world. The factory utilizes a locally-sourced hydropower plant and on-site wind turbines for its energy. At the end of the day, a BMW i3 takes 50% less energy and 70% less water to construct
