Electric Cars at Frank Keane

We are delighted to be the first BMW retailer in Ireland to have the new fully electric 2019 BMW i3 with longer range available.


BMW i3:

 
Here are just a few reasons why you should invest in an BMW i3: SEAI Grant, VRT Relief, Reduced Toll Fees, Home Charger Grant, ACA Tax Incentive, and 0% BIK. 
The new BMW i3 is getting an upgraded battery that will give the 2019 model about 153 miles of range, roughly a 30% improvement from the previous model.

BMW i3 120Ah includes:

  • BEV Technology with DC Rapid Charging
  • BMW Navigation
  • Cruise Control
  • Heated Seats
  • eDrive Services

 

When the BMW i3 first went into production in 2013 it had a 22.6-kilowatt hour battery pack containing 60 ampere hours (Ah) batteries. The first i3 had range of 81 miles, according to EPA estimates, and the second-generation battery, introduced in 2016, grew to 33 kwh of gross energy (94 amp hours) and had a range of about 115 miles under the EPA cycle. Now the 2019 model, which will comes with 120 Ah batteries in a 42.2-kWh-battery pack, will be able to travel about 153 miles on a single charge.

Other improvements to the new BMW i3 also include a new exterior color called Jucaro Beige metallic and adaptive LED headlights with automatic high beams. The exterior paint finishes Mineral Grey metallic, Imperial Blue metallic, Melbourne Red metallic, Capparis White and Fluid Black are still available.

Wireless charging and a Wi-Fi hotspot that can accommodate up to 10 devices will also be available for the BMW i3 and BMW i3s.

Customers will also have new options for the sports package, which will include black wheel arch surrounds and a suspension with specific dampers, springs and stabilizers, lowered suspension, a widened track and 20-inch light alloy wheels.

The new BMW i3 will have a starting price of:

  • €35,760 after grants, €2,200 less than previously.
  • BMW i3 120Ah (170hp) : €35,760
  • BMW t3s 120Ah (184hp) : €39,060

BMW i8:

 

The future is taking shape – in the form of the new BMW i8 Coupé. Full of verve, fascinating and ready to newly define mobility. For unconditional driving pleasure, as far as the road goes. A mere glimpse of this iconic design elevates adrenaline levels. The tachometer shoots up just as fast: the innovative plug-in hybrid engine generates 374 hp and 570 Nm. Plus, it accelerates the new BMW i8 Coupé in just 4.4 seconds from 0 to 100 km. The fastest route to a new era.

Whether in Sophisto Grey, Chrystal White, E-Copper or Donington Grey – the BMW i8 Coupé is an impressive appearance in any colour variation. Prices starting from €149, 860.

The BMW i8 Coupé reveals itself as futuristic right down to the last detail. The most striking feature: the imposing lightweight carbon-fibre gull wing doors, which can be opened comfortably. The athletic front continues to display the individual character of the car and proudly bears the BMW double kidney, flanked by full-LED headlights and redesigned Air Curtains. 

Starting at the bonnet, the distinctive V-shaped black belt stretches along the entire car, underscoring its flat silhouette. The impressive streamflow design also optimises airflow and creates unprecedented aerodynamics. Thus, the BMW i8 Coupé is a perfect symbiosis of form and function that knows only one direction: forward.


''The BMW i8 Coupé is already the best-selling hybrid sports car in the world – and I think we will succeed with this car, too.''
